Chelsea produced a dominant performance in winning 3-0 at Leicester to move six points clear at the top of the table upon the final whistle.

First-half goals from Antonio Rudiger and N'Golo Kante put Thomas Tuchel's team in control inside the opening half an hour and there was no way back for an out-of-sorts Leicester.

Any hope of a comeback was extinguished when substitute Christian Pulisic made it three on 71 minutes with the only disappointment for Chelsea being an injury to Jorginho.

The result takes Chelsea to 29 points from their 12 games, while Brendan Rodgers' side are languishing in the bottom half of the Premier League table.

The warning signs were there from the start when Ben Chilwell - booed throughout by the home fans - stole in behind Marc Albrighton and fired a shot against the crossbar.

Chilwell did not have to wait long to have an impact against his old club, however, and his assist for the opener was simplicity itself as Rudiger nodded in his corner from the right.

Kante went close to scoring soon after only to be denied by Kasper Schmeichel, although Ademola Lookman did have an attempt disallowed for offside at the other end.

PL hits and misses: Conte brings the noise; Utd made to pay

  PL hits and misses: Conte brings the noise; Utd made to pay Man Utd are made to pay for dithering on their manager, while Antonio Conte inspires Spurs, and Steven Gerrard is off to a winning start.He has only witnessed two games so far, but Antonio Conte doesn't do matches at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium by halves. Following that chaotic victory over Vitesse Arnhem here in the Europa Conference League, his side staged a brilliant comeback to ensure momentum remains intact under their new ebullient head coach.

Albrighton's decision to take a touch and delay his cross led to Lookman mistiming his run and it proved costly not long after when Kante punished them to double the lead.

The hugely-impressive Reece James slipped the ball inside to the ex-Leicester title winner but few would have expected what came next - the midfielder lashing the ball home with his left foot.

It was little more than Chelsea deserved given their superiority and, with the crowd becoming agitated, Schmeichel almost gifted them a third with a poor pass.

It was a disjointed effort from a team that has now gone 11 Premier League games without a clean sheet and Rodgers would have been grateful to get them in at the interval.

The Leicester boss made two changes at the break, introducing Kelechi Iheanacho and James Maddison, but he was unable to alter the flow of the contest. Chelsea remained a threat.

Lukaku COULD make his Chelsea comeback vs Juventus, reveals Tuchel

  Lukaku COULD make his Chelsea comeback vs Juventus, reveals Tuchel Thomas Tuchel will resist the temptation to rush Romelu Lukaku back into action as Chelsea try to overhaul Juventus and qualify for the Champions League knock-out phase as group winners. Lukaku, who has missed six games with an ankle injury, returned to full training with the first team on Sunday.Tuchel will wait for the medics to check on any reaction but has no plans to start with the £97million record signing against Juventus at Stamford Bridge on Tuesday, even though Kai Havertz is an injury doubt and the Londoners must win to stop Juve clinching top spot in Group H.

Harry Maguire, Harry Kane are posing for a picture:                      England's goalscoring record was 49 goals - and it was a record that stood for 45 years.                                                                              Plenty tried to hit the half-century and many came close. But one man reached the tally just a few years ago, getting to 53 in his career: more on him later in this list.                                                                              And actually, there are more than 50 players on this list, too - because over the years several England internationals have become tied on the same number of goals. But we’ve put together the definitive list of the most clinical footballers ever to pull on the Three Lions shirt – a collection spanning three centuries...

Chilwell went close again after Thiago Silva had put Callum Hudson-Odoi in behind down the left but his fierce shot was brilliantly parried by Schmeichel low down to his left.

There was a better spell from Leicester midway through the second half when Daniel Amartey drew a spectacular save from Edouard Mendy before Jamie Vardy headed wide.

But Chelsea always appeared comfortable and came close to another when two substitutes combined - Hakim Ziyech's cross almost diverted in at the near post by Pulisic.

Again, the warning was not heeded. Moments later, the pair combined in familiar fashion for the United States international to beat Schmeichel from close range.

It ended any hopes of a comeback and though Chelsea had the ball in the net three more times before the end, Leicester were spared further punishment by the assistant's flag each time.

As the home supporters filed for the exits, the noise in the vocal Chelsea away end only increased, singing the name of Tuchel almost incessantly throughout the match.

Defeats here did for Jose Mourinho in 2015 and Frank Lampard as recently as January. That was never a possibility for Tuchel but this was emphatic. A statement win in the title race.

Analysis: Chelsea's wing-backs outmanoeuvre Leicester

There has been so much spoken about Chelsea's wing-backs this season and with good reason given that Ben Chilwell and Reece James are the top scoring 'defenders' in the Premier League this season. But this will only add to the praise.

Within minutes, Chilwell had struck the frame of the goal down the left and soon after it was James in behind the Leicester back-line down the right. When they provide the width high up the pitch it becomes a five-man attack and opponents struggle to stop them.

But what was noticeable at the King Power Stadium was the variation in the threat. James, in particular, would drift inside and either drive at the defence from there or take on a playmaking role in the middle. In this form, he looks like the complete player.

The result is that while the two formations on show here were ostensibly similar, it was Chelsea who looked altogether more fluid, with the man on the ball always having options. It is a team that is growing together and their young wing-backs are leading the way.

Opta statsChelsea have won nine of their first 12 games to a Premier League season for the 10th different time, with the Blues finishing no lower than third in those previous campaigns and winning the title on five occasions.Leicester City are winless in their last 17 Premier League games against opponents starting the day top of the table (D2 L15), conceding 40 goals in the process (2.35 per game).No side has recorded more Premier League away wins at the King Power Stadium than Chelsea (5 - level with Spurs and Man City).Leicester City have conceded in 11 consecutive Premier League games for the first time since Boxing Day 2016.Chelsea wing-back Reece James has been directly involved in eight goals in his last eight Premier League appearances (4 goals, 4 assists), after registering five goal involvements in his first 57 games in the competition. What the managers said…

Leicester's Brendan Rodgers: "Especially in the first half, we lacked that belief to protect the ball and pass the ball. We went behind early on which was disappointing and that gives them that confidence to play to the level they can and they are a top side. We were nowhere near the level in the first half. We are honest enough to say we were beaten by the better side and we have to take our medicine."

Chelsea's Thomas Tuchel: "With a two-goal lead we were comfortable but you can never be that comfortable when a deflected goal or a set-piece goal can change the whole momentum. But we did a good match, a huge team effort with defending and attacking, and I am pleased that we got the result we deserved."

What's next?

These teams are involved in European action in midweek. Chelsea host Juventus in the Champions League on Tuesday before Leicester host Legia Warsaw in a crucial Europa League game on Thursday.

The Foxes have yet another game at the King Power Stadium when they return to Premier League action on Sunday. Later that afternoon, Chelsea are back at Stamford Bridge for a Super Sunday clash with Manchester United.
