The Foxes took the lead late on in the first half through former Aston Villa winger Marc Albrighton.

But Chelsea responded immediately in the second half, with Didier Drogba's strike.

Leicester couldn't hold onto the draw though, as a tap in from John Terry and a long-range effort from Ramires guided Chelsea to a 3-1 win, as they get closer to winning the title.

Leicester remain a point outside the bottom three - although Sunderland do have a game in hand and sit just below them - and stay a point below Aston Villa.
