During Chelsea’s match against Leicester, Antonio Rudiger was involved in strange scenes with Reece James.

There was a lot to like about Thomas Tuchel’s Chelsea side’s easy victory over Leicester City on Saturday, but it was Antonio Rudiger’s vampire-esque moment that has fans talking.

Chelsea extended their lead at the top of the Premier League table with a 3-0 win over Leicester City, but it was Antonio Rudiger’s moment of madness that grabbed the headlines.

Rudiger’s looping header over Kasper Schmeichel and into the far corner gave the Blues the lead in the 14th minute.

N’Golo Kante, a former Foxes player, made it 2-0 after receiving the ball deep in midfield and charging towards goal before curling a left-footed effort into the near post on the 28th minute.

Thomas Tuchel’s side added a third late on, when Hakim Ziyech and Christian Pulisic, both second-half substitutes, combined in the 71st minute, with the latter tapping home from close range.

However, Rudiger’s celebration following Kante’s goal stood out among the brilliant display.

After celebrating with his teammates, the German international bit Reece James on the head.

The camera cut away from the central defender’s bizarre skull chomping, but one can imagine James being miffed at being used as a mid-match snack.

What are your thoughts on Chelsea’s chances of winning the Premier League? Let us know in the comments section below.

Rudiger was caught biting Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba’s back at Euro 2020, and this isn’t the first time he’s been involved in a biting incident.

Pogba tried to draw attention to the incident by yelling at the officials and attempting to explain what happened, but he was unsuccessful.

At Stamford Bridge, Rudiger is a fan favorite, but many believe this will be his final season in the capital.

The former Schalke midfielder’s contract expires at the end of the season, and the Blues have been unable to tie him down to a new long-term deal, with Real Madrid and Bayern Munich showing interest in the prolonged negotiations.

Tuchel, the former PSG coach, has made no secret of his desire for Rudiger to stay in his team, especially since he continues to put in world-class performances week after week.

Tuchel said of the 28-year-old after Saturday’s win, “He has been outstanding.”

I’m hoping for more defensive performances like this.

They are deserving of praise for doing the unseen work.

“Everyone wants him to stay, which is lovely.
