Conte calls for Chelsea patience with Morata and Batshuayi

Chelsea head coach Antonio Conte attributed the poor performance in the 0-0 draw with Leicester to tiredness

Premier League champions Chelsea dropped points for the second straight league game as they were held to a 0-0 draw by ten-man Leicester City.

Ben Chilwell was sent off for Leicester with 20 minutes left after a foul on Moses earned him a second yellow card.

Chelsea goalkeeper, Thibaut Courtois, has slammed the club's fans who voiced their dissatisfaction during a third consecutive 0-0 draw.

Chelsea remains third - 15 points behind Premier League leaders Manchester City - and have drawn their last 4 matches in all competitions.

One Chelsea fan who is anxious about the situation in London is former snooker world champion Neil Robertson.

In terms of the match itself, Conte thinks some of his players were suffering from fatigue against Leicester, he added: "I think we played with a lot of top players against Arsenal, and then again today against a very good team".

"But I think, today, I saw a lot of players very exhausted".


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

Both sides had plenty of chances in the first half and it was thought that the hosts would turn up the pressure at Stamford Bridge after the break but, before the hour mark even arrived, both Eden Hazard and Cesc Fabregas were hauled off and replaced by Pedro and Willian respectively.

"I like in different moments of the season to speak with every player, to speak about improvement during training sessions, and about what we can do together to improve him".

Silva said: "This season we've had decisions go against us".

"I am fully committed in this and I am happy in what I am doing now and what I did in the past". Learning to deal with these type of situations and if we speak about Michy we are at the same level.

"I have another year of (my) contract with this club", he said.

Son Heung-min put Tottenham ahead in the 26th minute, courtesy of another close-range strike, and produced possibly the highlight of the game with his spin and driving run to set up Kane's first goal.
