Chelsea fans unhappy with Antonio Conte after questionable substitutions in Leicester stalemate

But the Foxes directed just one shot on target, failing to make their superiority count.

Antonio Conte attributed Chelsea's lacklustre performance in Saturday's goalless draw against 10-man Leicester to fatigue. They play at home.

"I think we played with a lot of top players against Arsenal, and then again today against a very good team. We have great players also and quality in the squad and a great attitude all the time in training sessions on the pitch", said Claude Puel. My plan was to play with one team in the FA Cup, and then these two games with nearly the same players.

He said taking off Cesc Fabregas and Eden Hazard was an easy decision: "I saw they were were very, very exhausted". We suffered a lot in the first half and at the start of the second half.

Chelsea head in to the Leicester game sitting third in the table but they can leapfrog Man Utd in to second with a win ahead of their clash with Stoke on Monday night. "At the end, the result was not fair".

In search of some inspiration and innovation, Conte switched to a 3-4-3 formation when he withdrew Fabregas and Hazard, sending wingers Pedro and Willian onto the field.

"I would assure Mr Wilson and all of our patients that we are monitoring the situation very closely and working hard to minimise delays".

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

Chelsea are expected to field a full-strength side against Leicester. Captain Gary Cahill was rested for the midweek Carabao Cup semi-final first-leg with Arsenal and could return in defence.

Conte turned to Andreas Christensen as his replacement, forcing David Luiz to wait even longer for his first Premier League appearance since November.

"I think the last pass is missing, the final part to score the goal". Speculation about his future only seems to be spurring Mahrez on and he was good again today, looking risky every time he carried ball forward and causing Chelsea all sorts of problems.

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.
