How to Watch Chelsea vs. Leicester City

Adjust Comment Print

There is no doubt that Conte is a totally a committed man for his club and has a lot of passion for the game, which is quite evident from the way that he expresses his emotions during the game.

Conte said he always planned to play "almost the same team" against the Foxes as he did against the Gunners in the Caraboa Cup.

Speaking to BBC Sport, Lawrenson said: "Arsenal's defence of the FA Cup ended in style, if you can call it that, at the hands of Championship side Nottingham Forest on Sunday". His last goal came against Brighton on Boxing day. He missed last Saturday's FA Cup 0-0 draw at Fleetwood but will make the trip to west London.

Jamie Vardy and Riyad Mahrez terrorised a hesitant Chelsea back line, while Wilfred Ndidi's header brought a wonderful diving save from Thibaut Courtois. He has a contract with the club that expires in June of 2019, though the rumours of a potential departure from the Bridge have been going around for quite some time now already.

"In the first half Leicester ran more than us, they played better than us".

Alvaro Morata is now under a bit of pressure. Cesc Fabregas would again be a key player to provide the service to Morata, just as he did in the previous league game against Arsenal.

Gary Cahill was taken off injured on 33 minutes and Conte continued: "I think he is with the doctor now, but it's okay, I do not think it was serious". However, Wes Morgan and Danny Simpson are ruled out of the game with hamstring problems. He can play as a winger wide right or left and striker also.

Ben Chilwell of Leicester City is shown a red card by referee Mike Jones during the English Premier League against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.

Antonio Conte has won 25 of his opening 30 home Premier League games as manager, no boss in the competition has won more of their opening 30.

Morata scored six goals in his first six league appearances for Chelsea but has netted only four times in his 13 top flight games since. Here, with the opposition full-backs having no responsibility for Hazard, they could focus their attention on stopping Chelsea's wing-backs.
