Chelsea vs. Leicester City, Premier League: Half-time report

Scoreless.

Unsurprisingly for an end-of-season exhibition posing as an actual league match, it's been a low-key affair.

Chelsea did grow into the flow of things in the final 10 minutes and forced several saves from Schmeichel, but the man vying for his 16th clean sheet of the season has been equal to them all.  Most impressive have been his quick hands to deny Fabregas and then Willian.  Chelsea did have the ball in the back of the net, but Pedro was a step offside and it was, rightly, chalked off.

Leicester have threatened with quick movement at the other end, as they are wont to do, but Vardy prodded wide after a lovely one-two set him free in-behind.  Despite panic stations at the back when Mahrez has the ball, Chelsea seem to have the upper hand.  But that's of course exactly where Leicester would want us.

Then again, very little of this actually matters.  Fun enough to watch, I suppose.  Everyone playing well enough from midfield forward bar Willian, who once again just looks absolutely spent.

Only 45 minutes more left of this season.  Let's get a goal, shall we?

(Meanwhile, Manchester United's match has been abandoned due a "suspicious package" at Old Trafford.  No time/date yet set for a replay.  In funnier news, we have broken Spurs, who are losing 2-0 at the half to relegated Newcastle, and could now very well end up gifting 2nd place to Arsenal.)
