Chelsea vs. Leicester City - Football Match Report - August 18, 2019 - ESPN

Leicester City denied Frank Lampard a first win as Chelsea manager as the Foxes earned a 1-1 draw at Stamford Bridge on Sunday.

Mason Mount put the hosts in front in the seventh minute when he dispossessed Wilfred Ndidi in Leicester’s penalty area and fired home a low line drive past Kasper Schmeichel.

U.S. winger Christian Pulisic went to ground near the end of the first half after awkwardly blocking a cross, but despite looking like he might have picked up an injury he was able to carry on as Chelsea took a 1-0 lead into the dressing room.

Ndidi made amends for his first-half blunder in the 66th minute, rising up to head James Maddison’s cross past Kepa Arrizabalaga to give Leicester a deserved equaliser after the visitors had dominated proceedings in the second half.

The result gives Chelsea their first point of the season, but leaves former club legend Lampard in search of a first win since taking over as manager.
