Bullard, Ferdinand and more: Twitter reacts as Chelsea beat Leicester

Jimmy Bullard and Rio Ferdinand tweet their thoughts after Chelsea edge to a 3-1 victory over Leicester City

Chelsea are on the brink of winning a fourth Premier League title after the Blues came from behind to beat Leicester City.

The Foxes threatened to spoil the Chelsea script after Marc Albrighton gave Nigel Pearson’s relegation-threatened side a first-half lead.

However, Chelsea responded in emphatic fashion in the second half thanks to goals from Didier Drogba, John Terry and Ramires.

Here is a selection of the best Twitter reaction from the professionals, past and present, in chronological order to Chelsea’s 3-1 victory.

Former Leicester star Darren Eadie (@eadie11) is loving the atmosphere created by the home supporters: “BOOOM #LCFC KingPower rocking like Filbert Street back in the day!”

Former Fulham and Wigan midfielder Jimmy Bullard (@jimmybullard), like the rest of us, didn’t predict Leicester breaking the deadlock: “Blimey Leicester!”

Queens Park Rangers defender Rio Ferdinand (@rioferdy5) looks to show off his tactical nous with his master plan on how to beat Chelsea: “If you can get any of the cfc cb’s & or Matic out of the centre&down the sides you will get chances-The trick is actually making that happen”

Former Chelsea defender Mario Melchiot (@MarioMelchiot) loves Willian’s electric speed: “I keep saying it William from the middle with that pace could be a great option. When he put that turbo on it’s all over. #mmlove #CFC”

Retired Blues midfielder Jody Morris (@morriskid) would certainly cherish a Chelsea goal-scoring record as impressive as Terry: “The captains goal record is a joke”

Former Chelsea manager Ruud Gullit (@GullitR) demands one last push: “Yes. #johnterry scores. Come on #chelseafc”

Finally, England legend Michael Owen (@themichaelowen) reckons the Premier League title race is done and dusted for the season: “Brilliant finish from Ramirez seals the game and surely The Premier League title is theirs this weekend.”
