Chelsea up 1-0 at the half, Morata with his third of the season.

A slightly frustrating experience so far, with Leicester hanging and playing tough, the referee letting them play tough, all the while NBC Gold, the "premium" surface keeps buffering me into minutes-long delays.  This is not $50 well spent when "illegal" streaming can do a better, if less ad-free job.

Logistical issues aside, Chelsea's on pitch performance hasn't been frustration-free either.  The 3-5-2 is certainly solid enough, but seems to be isolating Morata a bit too much and he's not going to outmuscle Wes Morgan too often.  Of course, all it takes is one time, and it was another deep cross from Azpilicueta, just like against Everton, that found the head of Morata, which usually only means one thing.  That's three goals in four games for Chelsea's no.9.

So, Chelsea up 1-0 at the half, with plenty of attacking intent from both sides, but also lacking a bit of quality.  Chelsea could use better from Pedro and a few better passes from Fabregas, but otherwise a solid performance so far.

COME ON, CHELSEA!
