Fabregas Brace Sends Chelsea Into Last 16

EFL Cup

Result: Leicester City 2-4 Chelsea 

Date: 20 September 2016  

Venue: King Power Stadium

Cesc Fabregas netted a brace as Chelsea came from behind to secure a 4-2 win over Leicester City in the EFL Cup on Tuesday evening.

The Blues enjoyed a better start to the half, but it was Leicester went ahead after 17 minutes when Shinji Okazi's header sailed just over the goal-line.

The Foxes doubled their lead in the 34th minute as Andy King played a fine pass to Okazi, volleyed home from a tight angle in the box.

Chelsea managed to squeeze themselves back in the tie on the stroke of halftime, as un-marked Gary Cahill headed home from a corner.

The visitors leveled matters five minutes into the second half, as Wasilewski's clearance fell for Cesar Azpilicueta, who volleyed home into the top corner.

With Chelsea searching for the win, Antonio Conte introduced Diego Costa for Ruben Loftus-Cheek after the hour-mark.

Leicester were reduced to 10 men in the 90th minute when Wasilewski received a second bookable offence for a foul Diego Costa.

The game was forced into extra-time, but Chelsea went ahead shortly after the restart as Fabregas rifled home from close range, after some good build-up play.

Chelsea's lead was extended in the 94th minute when a poor clearance landed at the feet of Fabregas, who volleyed home from 12-yards out.
