For the second game running the Blues went 2-0 behind in the first half but this time we stormed back in style to progress in the EFL Cup. Chelsea defeated Leicester 4-2 after extra time with Asmir doing whole 120 minutes for the Blues.
The defending that led to Shinji Okazaki giving the Premier League champions that two-goal lead with little over half-an-hour played will continue to concern Antonio Conte, but crucially his side showed the character to pull one back before half-time through Gary Cahill.
Another member of the defence then weighed in on the act. Cesar Azpilicueta may have been long odds to be a goal-of-season candidate at the start of the campaign but he will surely be one now. That strike by the Spaniard sent the game into extra time during which this third-round tie was won emphatically by two goals from substitute Cesc Fabregas. Leicester by then were playing a man down due to a 90th-minute red card.
