Leicester front man Ali Reghba was shown a straight red card for dangerous play after 74 minutes and Myers’ men looked to capitalise on the man advantage by adding extra players to the attack – that tactical move meant it was one-way traffic in the Blues’ favour.
Chelsea were camped in Leicester’s half for the remaining minutes but struggled to breakthrough the bodies that were thrown in the way of any goal-bound attempts – Nunn and Dynel Simeu were the closest, both of their shots from close range were frustratingly croweded out. Eventually time ran out for the Blues who had to settle for just a point.
