It was a very difficult game against Leicester City at Stamford Bridge today as Chelsea defeated Leicester City 2-1.

Chelsea were the better side in the first-half, but Thomas Tuchel’s side had to fight for a victory after the red card shown to Conor Gallagher before the half-hour mark.

Raheem Sterling scored two goals in the second-half  which helped Chelsea to the three points.

Thomas Tuchel was pleased with Sterling’s performance and goals, and admitted he changed the shape of the team to suit the former Man City star.

Speaking about Sterling’s impact, Tuchel said: “It was necessary because we need him to score. It’s what he does and he will score. I could feel he was not happy because he wants to score more and have more chances.

“We played today in a more aggressive shape but then we were one man down so we needed him to step up, which he did. The goals were crucial today because they gave us the belief.”
