We've got to give credit where it's due.
While you'd think Tammy Abraham would be the one to lead Chelsea to a hard-earned draw on the road against a top English club, that wasn't the case on Saturday against Leicester City.
Nope, at King Power Stadium, it was centre-back Antonio Rudiger who completely stole the show, as the 26-year-old German native headed in a pair of goals to help Chelsea take home a point against the Foxes.

Rudiger's first brace came in the 46th minute, which at the time put his side up 1-0. Unfortunately for Chelsea, they gave up two goals to LC and found themselves trailing 2-1. Against a talented side like Leicester City, a comeback on the road truly felt like a daunting task.
However, Rudiger came to the rescue once again in the 71st minute, firing another strong header past a diving Kasper Schmeichel. That closed the scoring at 2-2 for the day, in what quite honestly was one of the best English Premier League games we've seen this campaign.

With Saturday's result, Chelsea hasn't moved in the league table, standing in fourth place with its 41 points. Next up for the Blues is a huge showdown with Manchester United on Feb. 17 at Stamford Bridge.
