English Premier League Report: Chelsea v Leicester City 13 January 2018

A goalless draw at home to Leicester isn't good enough, and given Chelsea had a man advantage for the final 20+ minutes of the game, it's even worse.

It is the first time in the club's history that they have played out three successive 0-0 results.

Their double substitution with less than an hour on the clock highlighted the home side's struggles to find a way through this Leicester defence - even tired, those two had been Chelsea's most likely route towards a goal against the run of play in a first half dominated by the Foxes.

Gary Cahill has been substituted off in the first half of Chelsea's clash with Leicester City with an apparent hamstring injury.

Morata had a frustrating afternoon as Chelsea's lone forward and he has not scored since December 26, a run of five matches without a goal. If you are Conte, you have to decide between playing the current wing back plan of Marcos Alonso and Victor Moses or Davide Zappacosta or playing Morata with more direct support around him to make gaps.

But Conte is adamant Morata isn't the only one to blame for Chelsea's profligacy. The Foxes had the better of the chances throughout the game, although had to hold on for a point after Ben Chilwell's second half red card, but the Blues failed to find the breakthrough in what was a poor display by Antonio Conte's side. Team news coming up shortly so away we go. I understand Southampton are unhappy like I was not one time, more than one time when the mistake is against us. There has been speculation that Conte will leave the club in the summer but the Blues' Italian boss says the only way he will leave is if he is sacked.

In the other Premier League games on Saturday, Crystal Palace edged past Burnley 1-0, thanks to a first half goal by Bakary Sako.
