Ghanaian duo Daniel Amartey and Jeffrey Schlupp were in action for Leicester City in their heavy away defeat to Chelsea.
 
Chelsea cruised to a 3-0 win over Leicester City at Stamford Bridge on Saturday with Diego Costa, Eden Hazard and Victor Moses on target.
 
Amartey lasted for the entire duration of the game whiles Schlupp was substituted in the 67th minute.
 
Costa volleyed home his seventh league goal of the season after slack marking by Leicester at a corner, and Hazard made Chelsea's first-half dominance count with their second on 33 minutes.
 
The visitors, who were second best in the first half, improved after the break and nearly got back into the match when David Luiz turned a Marc Albrighton cross onto his own post.
 
But Victor Moses made the game safe for Chelsea in the 80th minute, latching onto Nathaniel Chalobah's back-heel and tucking past Kasper Schmeichel.
 
Leicester, who failed to register a shot on target, have become the first reigning champions since Blackburn Rovers to lose all four of their opening away games the following season.
