EPL 2016-17: Chelsea 3-0 Leicester City - 5 Talking Points

Share
Costa Coutinho

And does he agree with the Blues boss that this was Chelsea's best performance so far under his management?

- Leicester are the fourth reigning top-flight champion to lose their opening four away league games, and first since Blackburn Rovers in 1995-1996.

Leicester have eight points from eight games in a similar post-title malaise to Chelsea's of last term, but Ranieri is focused on working to respond.

Riyad Mahrez was rested and the Foxes were largely outclassed, leaving Ranieri perturbed.

"I play more inside the pitch and I don't stay wide".

"We are a team and we want to become a family".

Leicester now possess the worst defensive record away from home in the league.

Cleveland Indians vs. Toronto Blue Jays ALCS Game 2 Prediction
A Toronto Blue Jays fan offered her tickets to the first American League Championship Series game to a young Cleveland fan. Although impressive in his last start, Tomlin did not pitch well against the Blue Jays this season.

Pep Guardiola's City had been frustrated by Everton goalkeeper Maarten Stekelenberg, who saved spot-kicks from Kevin De Bruyne and substitute Sergio Aguero during proceedings. When you are playing in the Premier League then it is not that high.

The Spaniard rose to head home David Silva's cross with 18 minutes to go after Everton had taken the lead at the Etihad Stadium through Romelu Lukaku. Less of a threat in the second period and was withdrawn for the final quarter of the game. Eyebrows were raised when Alonso signed for the Blues, but the 25-year old Spaniard has adapted remarkably well to his left wing-back role and will nail down a regular first team berth if his good form continues.

Swansea were offered a lifeline five minutes later when an error by Switzerland worldwide Granit Xhaka gifted possession to Gylfi Sigurdsson, who struck a attractive curling shot beyond Petr Cech and into the far corner of the net.

Mesut Ozil was also on target for Arsenal, with Gylfi Sigurdsson and Borja netting for Swansea City.

Leicester has sustained three-goal defeats before each of its games in the Champions League group stage this season, having already lost 4-1 to both Liverpool and Manchester United.

Against the run of play, Ryan Mason equalised for Hull after 34 minutes but Cook quickly headed Bournemouth back in front.

Joe Allen proved Stoke City's hero with a first-half double setting the Potters on the way to a 2-0 victory over Sunderland in the dogfight between the Premier League's two bottom clubs.
