Frank Lampard has heaped praise on defensive duo Antonio Rudiger and Andreas Christensen after Chelsea came away with a point in their lunchtime clash with Leicester City.

Rudiger scored his first career brace as Chelsea fought back from 2-1 down to earn a draw in an entertaining contest at the King Power Stadium. He also managed to keep Jamie Vardy quiet as the Englishman looked to end his six-game goal drought. 

Christensen also impressed with a commanding performance at the back, having been handed a place in the starting eleven ahead of Kurt Zouma of late.
