Unsurprisingly, he was taken off at halftime for Matteo Kovacic.

It was not until the final few minutes that the tempo of the game increased a bit.

3. Poor Run continue for Leicester 

Since football resumed in England, Leicester are still waiting for their first win, having drawn against Watford and Brighton in the League.

Leicester are surely better than what they've shown in recent weeks.

4. Rodger's Poor Record against Chelsea

Brendan Rodgers also continued his poor record against the Blues as he has never beaten them since becoming a manager in 2008.

This was Rodgers’ 15th attempt to win a game against Chelsea with no luck - eight draws and seven losses.

5. Lampard's changes work

The Blues were not at their best in the first half, but a triple substitution by Lampard at halftime changed the game to some extent.

Azpilicueta also made them better at the back, while Barkley and Kovacic bossed the midfield.

The England international sent some good crosses into the box, however, he didn't show that he's currently an upgrade on Marcos Alonso or even Emerson.
