Defender Antonio Rudiger netted twice as Chelsea battled to a respectable 2-2 draw at Leicester City this afternoon.

After a goalless first half at the King Power Stadium, the game burst into life in the second period with four goals coming in just 25 minutes of football.

Very little happened in the first half at the King Power Stadium with neither goalkeeper being severely tested. Jamie Vardy did pull a save out of Blues keeper Willy Caballero with a shot from close range while Kasper Schmeichel had no problem in gathering a Pedro effort at the other end.

Chelsea opened the scoring in the first minute of the second half when centre-back Rudiger headed the ball home from a corner kick.

Harvey Barnes soon levelled matters for the hosts with an effort across goal before Ben Chilwell lashed the ball home from close range to turn the match on it’s head and send Leicester City into a 2-1 lead.

Rudiger had the final say though. He headed home from a Mason Mount delivery to make it 2-2 and complete his brace.

Leicester City looked like the most likely side to find a winner but Blues keeper Caballero remained untroubled as Chelsea held on for a point.
