In the second minute of injury time, receiving the ball in the penalty area, Cole Palmer kicked his heel to allow Carney Chukwuemeka to escape and put a low shot through the legs of goalkeeper Jakub Stolarczyk, increasing the score to 3-2.

Chukwuemeka joined Chelsea’s youth academy in 2021, was promoted to the first team in 2022 and scored the second goal in official matches.

In the eighth minute of injury, it was Noni Madueke’s turn to shine with a left-right strike that passed two Leicester players and curled into the far corner, beyond Stolarczyk’s range.

Noni Madueke scored the winning goal 4-2 for Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on March 17.

The 4-2 victory helped Chelsea raise hopes of winning the title this season and a ticket to the European Cup next season.

The two halves at Stamford Bridge on March 17 took place according to two opposite scenarios.

In the 13th minute, Chelsea scrambled and held the ball from the home penalty area.
