Chelsea draw with Wilfred Ndidi’s Leicester at Stamford Bridge
Chelsea drew 1-1 with Wilfred Ndidi’s Leicester thanks to Marcos Alonso’s superb goal, securing a third-place finish in the Premier League in all except statistics.
Alonso had switched off to assist James Maddison in firing the Foxes into an early lead at Stamford Bridge, but he responded with a wonderfully executed goal to equalize before the interval.
The Blues have a three-point lead over fourth-placed Tottenham going into the last day of the season, but a goal difference advantage of 18.
Christian Pulisic shockingly missed a tap-in that would have put the Blues in third place with a game to play.
The USA forward scuffed wide when it would have been lot simpler to score, leaving Chelsea to finish the job against Watford at Stamford Bridge on Sunday.
Todd Boehly was back at Stamford Bridge, although of the matches the impending new owner is known to have visited, the US businessman has yet to see Chelsea win in person.
Thomas Tuchel and his players would have been disappointed if one of many major second-half opportunities had not been converted to secure win.
The match was played in front of a very muted Stamford Bridge, with home fans maybe tired of the ongoing takeover drama.
