First half goals from Wilfred Ndidi and James Maddison sealed all three points for the Foxes, inflicting a fifth defeat in their last eight Premier League matches on Chelsea in the process.

Despite their recent woes, Brazilian ace Silva is eager for his team-mates to keep their heads above water, insisting they can still achieve their ambitions this season.

The centre-back, writing on Instagram, said: “Nobody said it was going to be easy. A lot of effort, determination, courage and dedication is required to win.

Tuchel open to Premier League job

With Frank Lampard under increasing pressure at Stamford Bridge, talk about who could potentially replace him if he is axed by Roman Abramovich is already well under way.

The early front runners for the post are the likes of former Paris Saint-Germain chief Thomas Tuchel, who was recently replaced in the French capital by Mauricio Pochettino recently, and former Juventus boss Max Allegri.

According to German publication BILD, Tuchel would be open to the idea of managing in the Premier League, as he plots a route back into the dugout.

With that in mind, should Chelsea relieve Lampard of his duties in the coming weeks, Abramovich may turn to the German, who could be key in igniting Kai Havertz’s and Timo Werner’s Chelsea careers.

Mount opens up on Leicester loss

Midfield ace Mason mount has admitted that Chelsea’s players need to look at themselves following the defeat to Leicester.

The Blues were second best for the whole of the 90 minutes in the Midlands and know they must offer an improvement against Luton Town in the FA Cup this weekend.

“We were beaten by the better side,” Mount said, as quoted by the Metro. “We know they are a very good team and coming into the game we knew how tough it would be.

“They set up very well and sometimes you have to put your hands up and say they were better on the night.

“We are disappointed we didn’t win the game. We know we are better than that.

“We have to have a look at ourselves, look at how we played, see where we can improve and come back stronger next game.”
