    We were the better team until Chilwell was sent off half way through the second half.

    Sounded like we played really well.

    Naturally, its all about how bad Chelsea were through.

    Excellent performance. Vardy, Mahrez (aside from the laughable dive), Ndidi and Maguire all superb. James was really tidy and worked exceptionally hard - I really liked his approach to the game today.

    Chilwell's second yellow was brainless especially as, up to then, he'd done well.

    Great result, deserved better for how well we played it really was top drawer stuff until the sending off. That subdued our attacking and creative presence somewhat but we still looked pretty solid defensively. Can be proud of that.

    That was an absolute pleasure to watch. They were all excellent and I include Amartey who was superb in the second half. Oh, and well done to Matty James who is a very cool head and a super passer of the ball. I will enjoy my beer tonight.

    Very happy with that. We were the better team until the sending off (no complaints BTW, decision nor Chilwell) inevitably changed the balance.

    We looked comfortable, I reckon perhaps our best performance all season.

    A mention for Amartey finding his way slowly into that position. He needs confidence going forward but is looking better by the game.

    Yeah, aside from the attacking play you would look at Dragovic and Amartey before the game and say there's the weak link Chelsea will exploit but they both deserve some credit in what was a pretty solid showing from the defence today.

    Dragovic: 25 passes. 100% success rate.

    Bloody hell that is a pleasant surprise! We’ve been horrible away a big teams since we won the league, and we’ve actually gone and managed a clean sheet.

    Nice.

    So much to enjoy about that performance - we were by far the better team until Chilwell's stupidity, and i think we would have won the game if we'd kept eleven on the pitch

    Brilliantly adventurous in that first half, resilient and strong at the end

    Mahrez, Vardy exceptional. The two in the middle ran the game. Oustanding stuff

    Chelski were ever such a little bit pony, weren't they

    Really? I have been led to believe that he is shit and would struggle in a Championship team.

    Couldn’t login to NBC so missed entire match. Sounds like we should have won it and James is far from finished.

    His decision making on the ball was exceptional today and he was obviously helped by Wilf who was again outstanding. One highlight was when Wilf stole the ball off N'golo and marched on up the field.

    Think one of the twins went missing today, not anywhere near his usual performance.

    I left off the emoji. James has been much maligned in here, I think he's a pretty tidy player and is one who should remain at the club.

    As for Wilf, he came in for a lot of stick earlier in the year when he wasn't playing well and it was pointed out that he might not of been sure of exactly what his role in midfield was. Since Puel came in his confidence and performances have improved markedly, maybe not a coincidence.
