Mateo Kovacic scored the 2000th Premier League goal for Chelsea FC against Leicester City.

Kai Havertz crosses a little too deep, but Mudryk manages to head it back across. Kova shows in just in time to end with an acrobatic finish. VAR check for a potential initial offside on Havertz, but this time, the check is unremarkable!

Mykhailo Mudryk provided Mateo Kovacic with the assist for the third goal scored by the Blues, his first for Chelsea.

The winger headed the ball back across the goal, and Kovacic sprinted in to volley the ball home from close range.
