Leicester boss says Chelsea looked exhausted

CHELSEA XI

The Italian won the Premier League title last term, in his first season as boss of the Blues, who play Leicester on Saturday.

Meanwhile, Chelsea have now drawn their last three games 0-0, and Conte needs to find a solution for his misfiring team.

Misfiring Chelsea missed the chance to climb into second place in the English Premier League by drawing 0-0 at home to 10-man Leicester on Saturday.

That's three 0-0 draws in a week now for the Premier League champions, who have a Champions League tie with Barcelona to look forward too in a couple of weeks. This, however, was one of his good games. "But there is something unusual if, after the first game we lost against Burnley, the press pushed quickly to sack me for another coach".

"We showed a lot of quality and played well".

"We played with nearly the same players as against Arsenal".

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

"When I chose to put fresh energy on with Willian and Pedro, the game changed". We tried to create chances, to score, and we are not suffering defensively.

It took Chelsea until the hour mark to start getting a foothold in the game, as the introduction of Willian and Pedro gave the home side more of an attacking impetus. "You must have a big squad to do this, otherwise you take risks to lose against teams like Leicester". Besides, with Leicester's Okazaki playing a typically energetic role and dropping back onto his old teammate N'Golo Kante to ensure Leicester weren't overrun, Chelsea didn't even have the numerical advantage in midfield that Conte may have expected.

"The problem is for the team, not only for Morata", he said. In both systems we are conceding less but, with both systems, we are scoring less than last season. At the same time we're showing not great quality in our finishing. "We have to try to improve on this aspect".

Jan 5: Conte said: "Sometimes, someone forgets what's said in the past, which is his behaviour".

"In relation to Alexis Sanchez, he is a phenomenal player, apart from that he is an Arsenal player and I feel I shouldn't say much more".

Leicester dominated the first half, with Jamie Vardy and Riyad Mahrez on scintillating form this afternoon at Stamford Bridge.
