    Credit to all the team today but I have to add that Claude is shaping the team well. He's got them playing well and is stamping his style of play on the squad. I'm sure with a couple of transfer windows under his belt Claude will have us pushing for the to 6.

    And I thought the ref was giving the remaining one some lenience.

    Did Danny Drinkminoxidil make the bench for Chelsea?

    We played beautifully. I cannot remember the last time Leicester passed so well.

    Our passing was fantastic with confidence and swagger.

    No.

    Chelsea fans would rather have him in the team than Bakayoko.

    Not the best career move then.

    After that game at home to Liverpool last February where we beat them in the aftermath of sacking Ranieri, we then proceeded to lose eight in a row against the top six.

    In almost every one of those games, we were pathetic. Everything about us had an inferiority complex and it did my head in.

    Since then, we've beaten Spurs, drawn with Man Utd and now Chelsea and lost at Liverpool. A decent return reflecting what we really are - a very good team.

    The reality under Puel is that we're starting to believe in ourselves again. We think we can get results against anyone and anywhere. That mentality will lead to success.

    I genuinely only see Everton as a threat to us finishing no lower than seventh. That should mean a Europa League place and set us up for a stronger challenge next season. Much more like it considering the quality and options at our disposal.

    Surprised Conte didn't start him. Surely he would have been really up for it.

    Lots of good performances (Mahrez, Vardy, James, Maguire, Kasper... Just about all of them) but MOTM was Ndidi for me. Just outstanding.:007:

    Chilwell can consider himself unfortunate in that the first yellow was very, very soft. That said, as soon as you are on a yellow you have to stay on your feet. To a man, the team were excellent today. Matty James looks like the player of 3 seasons ago, Ndidi superb. Dragovic looks a step up from Morgan as his distribution is better whilst Amartey held his own against Alonso, Pedro, Willian and Hazard. Mahrez.......on 606 Savage says £75m in value. Some little kid Spurs fan said £80m. Savage down in my estimations, Spurs fans are not all deluded.

    Just landed in tokyo and pleasantly surprised by that result.

    Is it cheeky to point out that’s three clean sheets on the spin without Simpson and Morgan?

    I think people are too harsh on our “backups”. Seems to me like Dragovic and Amartey are doing alright. James too.

    Let's be fair, a Chelsea fan contacted sports report to remind everyone that if was Chelsea holding Leicester to a draw, not vice versa.

    Kudos to him/her

    It does seem we write them off on here after one or two games despite the fact, as discussed elsewhere, they are coming into a team incredibly rusty from lack of games. And we want the team to be mixed up a bit, but then have no patience for others to play themselves into the team.

    To a man we were just excellent today. We wanted it more than them, and we showed grit and determination.

    I’ve been a bit of an Ndidi critic this season, but that was by far the best I’ve seen him play since he came. Kudos to whoever found him in the Belgian League.

    Amartey looks a good player when he's pointing in the right direction. He looked to play with more forward intent aswell today. Unfortunately when given the ball under pressure he is poor. I think with games he could really be a decent player. Dragovic also looked pretty good, I think however when playing against a high ball and stronger forward. Wes Morgan would be the better choice.

    Disagree about Amartey.
    When the ball came to Simpson he just wanted to get rid asap
    With Amartey, he wants to bring the ball down, look at the options.then pass. Sometimes it works , sometimes it doesn't.
    With time, it will

    Thoroughly enjoyable away day.

    We looked like the home team.
