Conte's Chelsea Collected An Unwanted Record After Their Draw With Leicester

Top Five Youngsters that Leicester City could potentially sign this month

Top Five Youngsters that Leicester City could potentially sign this month

"There is something odd that after the first game we lost against Burnley, the press pushed quickly to sack me".

Chelsea also created a few chances of their own, but they failed to punish the away side's profligacy.

Crystal Palace continued their rise up the table under former England manager Roy Hodgson by beating Burnley 1-0, Bakary Sako scoring the only goal of the game with an angled left-foot drive in the 21st minute.

But Leicester should have been in front by then after dominating a first half in which they mustered 12 goal attempts.

The England global missed Saturday's FA Cup draw at former club Fleetwood but will travel to Stamford Bridge on Saturday.

The Blues were unable to find a breakthrough at Stamford Bridge, despite holding a numerical advantage for the last 20 minutes of the contest after Foxes defender Ben Chilwell received his marching orders.

It took Chelsea until the hour mark to start getting a foothold in the game, as the introduction of Willian and Pedro gave the home side more of an attacking impetus.

Leicester City boss, Claude Puel has expressed mixed emotions following his side's goalless draw at Chelsea on Saturday in the Premier league.

Asked for his thoughts on Leicester's Jamie Vardy, Conte said: "For sure Vardy is a really good player and I don't like to speak about players of other teams but in this case we are not talking about transfer market".

Since losing to Man City in September, Chelsea have won each of their last seven home Premier League games, shipping just three goals and keeping five clean sheets in that time.

However, outside of the two goals given up to Arsenal in their first encounter of the year, Chelsea have kept Courtois's goal on lockdown. But we knew we were playing against a good opponent, maybe the worst opponent we could have played in this moment.

Chelsea manager Antonio Conte won the Premier League title during his debut campaign at Stamford Bridge. Very exhausted. I think we played with tiredness today.

Gary Cahill came off in the 33rd minute for Chelsea with an apparent hamstring injury. My plan was to play with one team in the FA Cup, and then these two games with nearly the same players. This is not the Conte that we all know and adore - it's nearly as though he's thrown in the towel.
