Stalemate at Stamford Bridge as 10-Man Leicester City Frustrates Chelsea

Adjust Comment Print

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 applied pressure after that but rarely threatened Kasper Schmeichel, who easily clawed away a free kick from Marcos Alonso in injury time. The Foxes beat Chelsea 2-1 at the King Power Stadium in December 2015 which proved to be Jose Mourinho's last game in charge of the Blues.

Leicester City might be losing Mahrez and if that happens, it could be a problem.

Chelsea manager Antonio Conte suggests that fatigue was responsible for his side's goalless draw at home to Leicester City.

Conte told the BBC's Match of the Day programme: "I think we played with a lot of top players against Arsenal, and then again today against a very good team".

Conte said: "Everyone is frustrated after another 0-0".

With all that put together, it is hard not to pick Chelsea to win this game.

"I have a lot of experience to deal with this type of situation (reports of a rumoured frustration)", said Conte. But we knew we were playing against a good opponent, maybe the worst opponent we could have played in this moment.

"There is something odd that after the first game we lost against Burnley, the press pushed quickly to sack me". My plan was to play with one team in the FA Cup against Norwich, and then these two games with nearly the same players.

David Luiz also made his return to action last weekend after recovering from a serious knee injury so Conte has virtually a fully-fit squad to choose from this weekend.

Even then Leicester limited them to few clear chances and this game was another clear sign that Claude Puel has the Foxes on the right track.
