Werner was ecstatic after believing he had put Chelsea ahead. However, VAR disallowed his first goal for offside, and his second goal was disallowed for handball. Even though the decisions were right, Werner felt drained and disappointed.
The German was clipped inside the box, and VAR intervened, luckily spotting it. Wesley Fofana trapped Timo Werner on the edge of the Foxes penalty area with the match at Stamford Bridge delicately balanced and a free-kick was awarded. Chelsea went on to lead and win the match.
Werner stood up and did an awkward dance in excitement when the full-time whistle blew. Given the challenges the German international has faced this season, it was a touching moment to watch.
The win also avenged Chelsea's FA Cup final loss on Saturday, when Leicester defender Amartey was caught on camera throwing the pennant given to the Foxes by Chelsea onto the ground of the Wembley dressing room.
It was perceived as a hurtful act, and Rudiger acknowledged after last night's victory that the incident provided added incentive to the players. It seems that the Blues players were not happy, as most of them ran directly for the Ghanaian international after a brawl erupted.
"Celebrate and everything but don't disrespect club history. This is a bit bigger than you," said Rudiger
