Chelsea 0-0 Leicester City: Foxes frustrate Blues

Chelsea have lacked creativity and cutting edge in recent matches summed up by striker Alvaro Morata failing to score in his last five matches, but Courtois has urged the fans to keep faith with the team's style of play.

Chelsea turned their attention back to the Premier League, following their excursions in the League Cup against Arsenal in midweek, by entertaining Leicester City. Chelsea are yet to win in 2018.

Super Eagles forward, Victor Moses played against his compatriot, Wilfred Ndidi as Premier League champions, Chelsea were held by 10-man Leifester City at Stamford Bridge on Saturday.

Courtois had been asked about Chelsea's preference to play out from the back and the challenge of doing so against Leicester's press, and volunteered the advice to Blues fans.

Conte said: "I saw many players exhausted, but don't forget we played a massive game on Wednesday night against Arsenal and then I chose to pick the same formation after two-and-a-half days, and maybe I made a mistake because many players didn't recover from this effort". If they start shouting it doesn't help us.

What's your take? Let us know. I think there was too much of that today. "There's a risk involved and we know that, but that's our game".

"Having the replay against Norwich didn't do us a favour, because we have lost the recovery week, but now we have another important game, because we want to go far in the FA Cup like past year".

"But to play in this busy period is not simple and you must have a big squad to face all competitions".

"During the game I understood many players didn't recover from the game against Arsenal", Conte said on Chelsea TV.
