Chelsea misfires again in 0-0 draw against Leicester in EPL

Antonio Conte has refused to commit his future to Chelsea beyond the current season

Chelsea were second best against 10-man Leicester at Stamford Bridge on Saturday, but managed to at least claim a point from a 0-0 draw.

Leicester City boss, Claude Puel has expressed mixed emotions following his side's goalless draw at Chelsea on Saturday in the Premier league.

The Blues - who could slip behind Liverpool and into fourth on Monday (AEDT) - will hope to get back on track in their midweek FA Cup third-round replay at home to second-tier Norwich City.

Cahill was left out of the squad during the Blues tame 0-0 draw against London rivals Arsenal in the first leg of the Carabao Cup at Stamford Bridge.

Conte threw on Willian and Pedro in their place, but the question Chelsea fans were all asking is why take off two of your best players when you're in need of a goal?

He said: "I understand that the other teams try to kill (rival) teams and to anticipate the situation".

There's only one man at Leicester City who can truly petrify the opponent defenders and that's Jamie Vardy. But I think, today, I saw a lot of players very exhausted.

"Obviously we all feel a little bit exhausted, previous year we went from week to week, but now we have already played a lot of games".

Nuclear Deal, Failure for Iran: Senior Official
It is delivering on its main goal which means keeping the Iranian nuclear programme in check and under close surveillance. If that happens, Iran has said it would no longer be bound by the pact and could return to producing enriched uranium.

Conte was unable to provide an update on Eden Hazard's contract, amid suggestions a new deal for the Belgium playmaker is close, saying it was a club matter.

The Chelsea back-line will more or less be the same with Conte switching between Antonio Rudiger and Gary Cahill, with Thibaut Courtois, Cesar Azpilicueta and Andreas Christensen being the regular names in defence. "We suffered a lot in the first half and at the start of the second half but when I chose to put fresh energy the game changed".

"I think the last pass is missing, the final part to score the goal".

Chelsea, now with the man advantage, began to exert more pressure on their visitors who were now playing deeper and trying to deny the hosts any space.

Whilst the reality star has neither confirmed nor denied the rumours, her family have done a great job at confusing us all. Maybe their Kardashian sources are planting false denials so Kylie can give birth in peace. "She must be pregnant".

Conte's decision to stick with a more conservative 3-5-2 formation over the 3-4-3 system that propelled Chelsea to the Premier League title last season is attracting growing criticism from supporters, but the Italian is adamant that there is no tactical reason for his team's attacking struggles.

Leicester have lost 12 of their last 14 games against Chelsea in all competitions, and they are winless in their last 12 away Premier League games against "big six" opposition (W0 D3 L9) - losing each of the last five.
