Leicester beat Chelsea 2-0 on Tuesday night to heap further pressure on Blues boss Frank Lampard.
Questions have been raised over the club legend’s future at Stamford Bridge in recent weeks and their woeful display at the King Power Stadium provided no positive answers.

Wilfred Ndidi fired Leicester ahead after just six minutes.
The midfielder drilled in off the post from the edge of the area after Harvey Barnes had miscued Marc Albrighton’s short corner.
James Maddison made it 2-0 to the hosts four minutes before the break.
Marc Albrighton’s clever ball over the top found the midfielder unmarked to sweep in.
It came just a minute after VAR had overturned Craig Pawson’s decision to award Chelsea a penalty.

Jonny Evans had tripped Christian Pulisic but replays showed the tackle occurred just outside the box and Mason Mount blazed the free-kick over.
Chelsea were uninspiring throughout and created few chances in the second half despite badly needing them.
Timo Werner looked to have ended his eleven-match Premier League goal drought late on, only for the offside flag to be correctly raised by the assistant.
Leicester had multiple opportunities to add to their tally, but the game ultimately ended 2-0 meaning that the Foxes go top of the table overnight.
Chelsea are down in eighth after 19 games, and while they beat Fulham on Saturday they had won just one of their six Premier League matches before facing their west London rivals.

Pressure has mounted on Lampard over the past few weeks with this dreadful run ongoing, and he is one of the favourites to lose his job in the Premier League sack race.
But could Lampard be axed as early as today? According to journalist Simon Johnson, who covers Chelsea for The Athletic, the answer to that question is ‘yes’.
“There already are (question marks over his future),” Johnson told the talkSPORT Sports Bar prior to Chelsea vs Leicester.
Desiring a clear-cut answer on Lampard’s future, host Andy Goldstein was straightforward with his next question: “If Leicester beat Chelsea, could he get the sack tonight?”
“Yes,” was Johnson’s reply.
