Chelsea are just one win away from the Premier League title after an impressive comeback to beat Leicester City on Wednesday.

In-form Leicester fought hard and took the lead in the first half with a Marc Albrighton strike.

Chelsea responded in style to come back and take the win.

It means they will be crowned champions for the first time in five years if they beat Crystal Palace at Stamford Bridge on Sunday.
