Chelsea’s ambition to get themselves back into the runners up spot in English Premier League standings temporarily stuck as they were held into a disappointing goalless draw on Saturday by Leicester City.
Keen on bagging all three points in front of their home crowd, The Blues tried to put on an aggressive display straight from kick off.
However, Leicester were not keen on just sitting back as they also play solid and always look dangerous going forward with their counter attacking setup.
Despite both teams relentless efforts in search for that important goal, neither were able to convert any of their chances until the final whistle was blown, settling down for a 0-0 draw.
Certainly disappointing for result for them, but especially Antonio Conte’s men as they’re push for that runners up spot is slipping again, while they’re third place set could be threatened sometime soon.
Meanwhile, contrasting result was earned by Tottenham Hotspur as Mauricio Pochettino’s men demolished Everton 4-0.
Spurs’ star striker Harry Kane continuing his goal scoring barrage netting two out of his team’s four goals, putting him as the Lilywhites’ all time league top scorer beating club’s legend, Teddy Sheringham.
Kane netted his double both in the second period, extending and ensuring his team’s victory after Son Heung-Min opened the scoring on 26 minutes.
Tottenham completed their domination with a fourth goal scored by Christian Eriksen on 81 minutes.
