Winners and losers of Chelsea 0-0 Leicester

Winners and losers of Chelsea 0-0 Leicester

Even the 68th minute dismissal of Leicester defender Ben Chilwell for two bookings in quick succession couldn't lift lethargic Chelsea, who were out-played in the first half and couldn't make their numerical advantage count at the end of the second period.

Antonio Conte blamed tiredness for Chelsea's lacklustre performance in their 0-0 draw with Leicester at Stamford Bridge. "We suffered a lot in the first half and at the start of the second half", Conte said.

Chelsea failed to win for the fourth match in a row in all competitions as they scraped a 0-0 draw against 10-man Leicester on Saturday. At the same time, against Norwich we played 3-4-3 with Pedro, Willian and [Michy] Batshuayi, but we didn't score.

The result capped a hard week for Chelsea boss Conte, who could be in the final months of his turbulent reign despite last season's title triumph.

He feels Conte should have tried hard to keep the two key players, who were instrumental in Chelsea winning two out of the last three Premier League titles.

When looking to the bench, Conte did not have the players required to change the game as Morata once again struggled.

"I think he is with the doctor now, but it's OK, I do not think it was serious".

Chelsea are scheduled to play United at Old Trafford on February 25, unless the Blues reach the Carabao Cup final at Wembley on the same day.

But what surprised and infuriated fans more is one decision of Antonio Conte in particular.

Claude Puel's side went close twice through Jamie Vardy, while Wilfred Ndidi's header was acrobatically pushed away by Thibaut Courtois.

Abdoulaye Doucoure's controversial last-gasp equaliser denied Southampton a first win in 10 matches, with the midfielder diverting the ball in with his arm a minute before fulltime as hosts Watford came from two goals down to snatch a 2-2 draw.

OVER AT THE HAWTHORNS: West Brom ended their miserable Premier League run on Saturday, beating Brighton and Hove Albion 2-0 to record their first league triumph in 21 games.
