EPL : Leicester City beat Chelsea to go top of the English Premier League
Leicester City’s dream season has continued with a 2-1 win over Chelsea, while the Premier League champions are left in nightmare territory, just one point off the relegation zone.
Usual suspects Jamie Vardy and Riyad Mahrez got the goals for Claudio Ranieri’s side, while Loic Remy scored Chelsea’s only goal amid a late surge.
Mahrez was once again brilliant for Leicester, setting up Vardy’s strike and adding another brilliant solo goal to his highlights reel.

Mahrez was given man-of-the-match. “We’re still not safe,” smiles the Algerian in his post-match interview. “We need 42 points.”
“He’s doing things with his left foot that only Messi can do,” says Jamie Carragher.
