Chelsea closes in on EPL title, comes back for 3-1 win vs. Leicester
LEICESTER, England (AP) — Chelsea staged a second-half comeback to beat Leicester 3-1 on Wednesday and move to within three points of capturing the Premier League trophy.
Jose Mourinho's side holds a 13-point lead and can clinch a first league title in five years by beating Crystal Palace at home on Sunday.
Marc Albrighton's goal in first-half injury time raised relegation-threatened Leicester's hopes of a fifth straight win, but Didier Drogba equalized in the 48th minute.
Captain John Terry put Chelsea ahead by prodding in from close range in the 79th and Ramires slammed in the third four minutes later.
Chelsea is unbeaten since Jan. 1.
