Chelsea 0-0 Leicester City: 5 Talking Points

Chelsea 0-0 Leicester City: 5 Talking Points

"To play Wednesday night and then today against a really good team, a team in really good physical form like Leicester, after only two and a half days", he told reporters at his post-match press conference.

Chelsea applied pressure after that but rarely threatened Kasper Schmeichel, who easily clawed away a free kick from Marcos Alonso in injury time. They dominated Chelsea in every department, looking especially risky on the break, and it took the red card for Chelsea to get a foothold in the game.

Marc Albrighton, Shinji Okazaki and Riyad Mahrez are the players who are likely to provide the supporting act.

Chelsea did not create enough goal scoring chances which has now given Manchester United a chance to extend their lead at second place when they face Stoke City.

"Obviously we all feel a little bit exhausted, past year we went from week to week, but now we have already played a lot of games".

Antonio Conte has no intention of quitting Chelsea and says it is up to the club whether he stays on as head coach.

The big game of the weekend sees Liverpool host Man City on Sunday afternoon, and I've put up three selections at 9/1, 6/1 and 11/2 for the game in my Big Match Preview right here. But I think, today, I saw a lot of players very exhausted.

Leicester had to play the final 22 minutes with 10 men after Ben Chilwell was sent off for two bookings, and their manager Claude Puel felt the incident had denied his side a chance of taking the three points.

"I think the last pass is missing, the final part to score the goal". Morata scored six goals in his first six league appearances for Chelsea but has netted only four times in his 13 top flight games since.

Equally important, winning in fine style would also help re-balance Conte's state of mind and perhaps help him realise that settling his feud with Mourinho can be done on the pitch by his team playing a better brand of football and winning more trophies. If Kenedy goes on loan, we go to take another player or we take a player from the academy.

West Bromwich Albion picked up their first win since August in the league as first-half goals from defenders Jonny Evans and Craig Dawson gave them a 2-0 triumph over Brighton and Hove Albion.

Long-range shots from Kante and Tiemoue Bakayoko were symptomatic of Chelsea's struggles to break Leicester down.
