Leicester City holds Chelsea at home goalless

Antonio Conte

"When you play every three days you have to make rotation".

Chelsea remain third - 15 points behind Premier League leaders Manchester City - and have drawn their last four matches in all competitions. Ben Chilwell skips past Gary Cahill down the left wing before squaring the ball to Shinji Okazaki, who puts the ball over from just six yards out!

Chelsea responded by launching a counter-attack from which Fabregas warmed the gloves of Kasper Schmeichel with a low drive from an acute angle.

Conte has also criticised United's spending, while Mourinho even mocked the Chelsea head coach for having a hair transplant.

Leicester were soon back on top after the restart.

Mahrez then had a shot deflected against Christensen and inches wide of the upright with Courtois stranded.

Conte has been linked with a move to Paris Saint-Germain as his relationship with the Chelsea board has grown increasingly fractious following disagreements over transfers and the Italian's feud with Diego Costa, which led to the striker joining Atletico Madrid.

A 25-yard effort from N'Golo Kante was held by Schmeichel, before Tiemoue Bakayoko sent a pair of attempts from outside the box off target.

Everton, who had a headed goal by Wayne Rooney disallowed when it was 0-0, have not won any of their last five games in the league.

Newcastle dominated the first half, but squandered a series of chances and might have conceded a penalty before Ayew struck.

In his post-match press conference, Antonio Conte blamed his side's poor display at Stamford Bridge on a lack of composure in front of goal.

"The first thing I have to find is the right balance". Speaking ahead of today's game against Leicester at Stamford Bridge, Morata said: "It's hard to get something here (for opposition teams) and between now and the end of the season we need to win even more games at our home".

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.

"We tried to create chances and score".

The result leaves the Blues praying that Manchester City can secure victory at Liverpool on Sunday.

A below-par Chelsea had to settle for a point against 10-man Leicester, who were more than deserving of their point.

Elsewhere yesterday, Watford manager Marco Silva defended Abdoulaye Doucoure's controversial last-minute equaliser for his side in their 2-2 draw with Southampton, believing that it balanced out decisions that had gone against the Hertfordshire club earlier in the season.
