Leicester Worst Team For Us To Face - Antonio Conte Assesses Chelsea's Draw

Share

Fresh off two consecutive goalless draws against Norwich City and Arsenal, Chelsea are by no stretch of imagination at their best, and Leicester should be looking to exploit that.

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.

Hazard was also substituted by Conte in the Blues' midweek 0-0 draw with Arsenal, as well as the 2-2 draw played out between the sides at the turn of the year.

Chelsea's Italian coach will of course be aware that his team need to get back to winning ways quickly, or he may find himself coming under serious pressure.

Leicester wasted four excellent first-half chances and Chelsea only really began to properly compete when Willian and Pedro were brought on with more than 30 minutes remaining.

"There is something unusual that after the first game we lost against Burnley, the press pushed quickly to sack me". We did this. In the FA Cup we played with one team, in the Carabao Cup we played another team, and today we played nearly the same team as Wednesday.

"The ambition is not just for us to score but to continue to play after scoring and to always keep good ambition in our play".

Nevertheless, Chelsea's manager gave Morata and Batshuayi his backing on Friday, insisting the club is prepared to be patient with both men. I understand Southampton are unhappy like I was not one time, more than one time when the mistake is against us. I never see this type of mistake in the Premier League before.

"I think he is with the doctor now, but it's okay, I do not think it was serious". "To live this injustice is really hard".

Palace lost their first seven games of the season but are now five points clear of safety and Hodgson said: "We can look at the league table for a week or two without shivers running down our spine".
