Paul Scholes delivers honest verdict on Chelsea performance

Paul Scholes was very impressed by the way Chelsea battled back to winning ways with a 3-0 victory at Leicester on Saturday

Paul Scholes has praised Chelsea for showing the character to bounce back to winning ways in style during their 3-0 win over Leicester City on Saturday.

The Blues headed into their clash against the Foxes looking to get their title bid back on track after the disappointment of their 2-0 loss to Tottenham at White Hart Lane.

Chelsea had been on a 13-game winning run in the Premier League before that loss and all eyes were firmly fixed on Antonio Conte’s men to see how they would respond to the defeat.

And the west London club bounced back in style as Marcos Alonso scored twice and Pedro netted late on to seal a 3-0 win for Chelsea against the Foxes.

Former Manchester United midfielder Scholes was extremely impressed by what he saw from Chelsea at the King Power Stadium.

Speaking to BT Sport after the game, Scholes said: “Against Spurs there was no shame in going to Tottenham and getting beaten.

“It was really important they came here [to Leicester on Saturday] and won.

“They put in a real performance, too. I thought they were excellent today.”
