Chelsea avenged their FA Cup final defeat and moved above Leicester City into third spot in the Premier League with a 2-1 win at Stamford Bridge.

Antonio Rudiger’s goal put Thomas Tuchel’s team ahead early in the second half and Jorginho’s 66th-minute penalty doubled the advantage before Kelechi Iheanacho gave Leicester hope.

The 8,000 Chelsea fans welcomed back to the stadium relished a result that leaves Leicester not only down in fourth but out of the Champions League places if Liverpool win at Burnley on Wednesday.

For Chelsea, it was a reversal of the 1-0 defeat at Wembley that came at a cost with N’Golo Kante going off injured, but Brendan Rodgers could have few complaints given the balance of play.
