Chelsea won the Premier League title with two games to spare last season thanks in part to Hazard's valuable goals.

Chelsea are in action again on Tuesday night at home to Qarabag and Hazard could get another run-out in the Champions League group game.

Spanish worldwide Alvaro Morata continued with his rich vein of form this term in the Premier League as he scored the first goal for Antonio Conte's men in the 41st minutes.

"Alvaro, Alvaro. He comes from Madrid, he hates the f****** Y***" sang Chelsea supporters at the King Power Stadium.

Leicester would pull one goal back through a penalty in the 61st minute.

Chelsea's Alvaro Morata celebrates scoring his side's first goal of the game during the Premier League match at the King Power Stadium, Leicester.

Vardy - under contract until 2020 - turned down a move to Arsenal after guiding Leicester to a remarkable Premier League triumph in 2015-16.


"That is most important and if he scores then I am very happy".

They looked really solid today in a 2-1 win at Leicester City, and find themselves just one point behind the two Manchester clubs for the top of the table.

"It's always important for the striker to score", said Conte. 'Now we are trying to involve new players with the older players and this is a process.

'Thibaut gave me the ball, I had time so I went on a run and shot. "So we're all right with that I think", Vardy said via The Irish Independent.

Spanish forward Pedro said of the 26-year-old: 'He's a very important player for the team, a very good midfielder. "Always against Leicester at this stadium it is very hard to win", Morata told Sky Sports.

Whilst it is a pretty weak statement from Morata, what more could we expect from a Chelsea striker new to his club?
