Chelsea vs Leicester City, Premier League

Chelsea FC news Misfiring Alvaro Morata will be back to his best in no time says former Blues star Joe Cole

Chelsea FC news Misfiring Alvaro Morata will be back to his best in no time says former Blues star Joe Cole

Chilwell's 68th-minute dismissal for two yellow cards allowed Chelsea to push forwards and Kasper Schmeichel saved Marcos Alonso's stoppage-time free-kick.

With an advantage of an extra man, Chelsea sensed an opportunity to win a game they were second best until the final 20 minutes, but they failed to create the clear cut chances to open the ten men of Leicester up.

In the past Leicester haven't signed bad players from Ligue 2, like [Riyad] Mahrez.

"I think in our games against the great teams, we have always had good situations and good possibilities - like against Manchester United and Tottenham".

Antonio Conte says it is up to Chelsea whether he stays at the club or not.

With most of Leicester City's first choice players now fit and charged, Puel also has the luxury of fielding a fully fit side as opposed to Conte, who will have a relatively exhausted set of players to pick from. "I think a lot of our players were exhausted".

Pushing their hosts with Vardy and Mahrez, the Foxes were a constant threat on Chelsea's back line and had the best of the chances in the first half.

Morata, a July arrival from Real Madrid, has faced criticism of his performances on occasions this season, despite a return of 10 goals from 19 appearances in his maiden Premier League campaign.

"I saw many players were very exhausted and they didn't recover from the Arsenal game".

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.

Conte is optimistic the hamstring injury suffered by Gary Cahill is not severe, although the length of absence the captain faces is uncertain. But, problems on the other end of the pitch have been prevalent, and Alvaro Morata and Eden Hazard will be desperate to get on the score sheet. But I trust in my work and what we are doing in these two seasons.

After a hectic period where it felt like the Foxes were playing every day, it's suddenly been almost two weeks since their last league fixture.

The draw is Chelsea's fourth in a row in all competitions, three of which have been goalless, and could see them drop down a place to fourth should Liverpool beat Manchester City on Sunday.
