  • Description

    ONE OF BRITAIN'S GLAMOUR SOCCER TEAMS, CHELSEA, HAVE TASTED VICTORY ONLY ONCE IN SIX HOME GAMES THIS SEASON. AT STANFORD BRIDGE AGAINST LEICESTER CITY TODAY (SATURDAY) CHELSEA FAILED TO SCORE AFTER SHOWING SUPERIORITY IN THE FIRST HALF HOUR, AND WENT DOWN TO A 2-NIL DEFEAT.

    CHELSEA SEEMED OVER-ANXIOUS IN THE FIRST HALF, BUT PLAYED MORE CONSTRUCTIVE SOCCER WITHOUT BREAKING THROUGH. WITH GOALKEEPER GORDON BANKS IN MAGNIFICENT FORM, LEICESTER HELD THE HOME SIDE AT BAY, AND NEITHER TEAM HAD SCORED AT THE INTERVAL.

    LEICESTER SHOWED THAT THEY WERE MOVING INTO FROM JUST BEFORE HALF-TIME WITH A SERIES OF ATTACKS THAT HAD THE CHELSEA DEFENDERS STRETCHING.

    CHELSEA LACKED THEIR EARLY FIRE IN THE SECOND HALF AND LEICESTER WERE MOVING THE BALL ABOUT, THREATENING TO SCORE AT ANY TIME. THE VISITORS TOOK THE LEAD IN THE 57TH MINUTE, WHEN GIBSON'S CORNER KICK FLOATED OUT TO THE EDGE OF THE PENALTY AREA. FAIR-HAIRED SJOBERG LEAPED HIGH TO HEAD THE BALL HOME. LEICESTER WERE DOMINATING PLAY AT THIS STAGE AND McREADIE (CHELSEA) KICKED A SHOT FROM ROBERTS OFF THE LINE.

    LEICESTER STORMED IN AGAIN TO SCORE THEIR SECOND GOAL.

    FINAL SCORES: LEICESTER CITY 2: CHELSEA 0.
