Mason Mount and Olivier Giroud

Mason Mount and Olivier Giroud

It was Lampard's first home game in charge of Chelsea and he was greeted with chants of "Super Frank" and welcome home banners.

Chelsea started swiftly in the opening exchanges, repeatedly opening Leicester up before Mason Mount capitalized on a defensive lapse from Ndidi to poke his first ever goal for the club in on seven minutes, as a delighted Lampard pumped his fist into the air in celebration.

The Blues lost their Premier League opener last weekend at Manchester United and then slipped to a penalty defeat in the UEFA Super Cup in Istanbul to Liverpool in midweek.

Maddison's brilliant corner allowed the Nigerian to rise above Cesar Azpilicueta and nod the ball home to make it 1-1.

Maddison was at the centre of every Leicester attack and he caused Chelsea all sorts of problems in the second half.

The former Top Gear presenter is a notorious Chelsea fan, and Maddison played against his team for Leicester at Stamford Bridge. 'Too long at the barber's. "Not enough time practicing football", Clarkson wrote.

Leicester City star James Maddison was quick to shoot down a famous Twitter troll on Sunday evening as he issued a brutal comeback to Jeremy Clarkson.

However the midfielder hit back in fashion, although he'd already done that with his performance on the pitch.

'Stick to cars mate, ' Maddison replied. "Can count on 1 hand how many trims you've got left #thin".
