Yesterday, Chelsea welcomed Leicester City for their second leg Premier League action. Both teams were hoping to get all the three points to keep their Champions League football spot hopes alive. As it stands, Manchester City and Manchester United have already booked their first and second positions respectively, so the third and fourth spots are up for grabs among Chelsea, Liverpool and Leicester City.
A win for Chelsea would see them going third, and so was Leicester. This was a hotly contested match. In a game that saw 8000 fans return to the Stamford Bridge, Chelsea had plenty of the ball, and that rewarded them as they scored first. A much entertaining encounter saw Chelsea beat Leicester City by two goals to one, avenging their FA Cup final defeat against them.
However, fans around the world took to their social media accounts to lash out Antonio Rudiger, Chelsea's defender who was notorious in this game. He liked causing a scene. In the first half, he unnecessarily pushed Leicester City's Ayoze Perez and later on, went ahead to collide with Ricardo Pereira causing unrest as the game was edging closer to the full time.
