Leicester Worst Team For Us To Face - Antonio Conte Assesses Chelsea's Draw

Leicester Worst Team For Us To Face - Antonio Conte Assesses Chelsea's Draw

Even though Chelsea didn't inspire much on Wednesday night against Arsenal they should be able to get the job done against Leicester, while I've also, slightly riskily perhaps, picked out another team who were in League Cup action in midweek.

Chelsea were held to a 0-0 draw at home to Leicester and Morata once again failed to find the net after a hard Christmas period for the 25-year-old Spain attacker.

Marc Albrighton, Shinji Okazaki and Riyad Mahrez are the players who are likely to provide the supporting act.

"I think honestly, not to find excuses or alibis, today we paid a lot for the effort from Arsenal", Conte said. Both teams can score and with a shaky Chelsea defense, 3 goals seem like a given.

He said: "I have another year of (my) contract with this club".

Conte feels most of his top players were exhausted after the grueling first leg of the EFL Cup semi-final against Arsenal and it showed in their performance. "I think a lot of our players were exhausted", Conte said during his post-match interview.

Speaking to BBC Sport, Lawrenson said: "I was at the FA Cup tie between Fleetwood and Leicester on Saturday and Claude Puel's side did not play well, but he had made a lot of changes so you can not read too much into that performance".

"At this moment maybe Leicester is the worst team for us to face", he added.

Pakistan lost 2nd ODI at Nelson
Ferguson was the pick of the bowlers with three wickets, while Southee and Astle snapped up two wickets apiece. Fakhar Zaman was the only Pakistani player looked good against the New Zealand bowling attack scoring 82*.

Crystal Palace v Burnley - We move across to Selhurst Park where Crystal Palace have been far from convincing ever since they were promoted back into the top-flight, although Roy Hodgson's men have only lost one of their past eleven league games overall.

Chelsea's Gary Cahill leaves the pitch with medical staff with an apparent hamstring injury.

After a goalless first half, which saw the visitors have plenty of chances, Antonio Conte made a couple of changes minutes into the second half. I understand Southampton are unhappy like I was not one time, more than one time when the mistake is against us.

"I don't think it is only Morata's problem, also the other players, because we are not scoring goals, we are not conceding, but we are not creating chances".

The draw is Chelsea's fourth in a row in all competitions, three of which have been goalless, and could see them drop down a place to fourth should Liverpool beat Manchester City on Sunday.
