Antonio Conte and Chelsea make unwanted history following Leicester City stalemate

Yet the Italian struggled to provide clarity when asked whether he could understand Chelsea fans being confused by an apparent lack of interest from their club in the Chile forward.

Regardless, Leicester City would still have to raise their game to get anything at Stamford Bridge.

Despite Leicester City going down to ten men with 20 minutes remaining, Antonio Conte's side were simply unable to find a way past their visitors on Saturday.

Chelsea stayed in third place, behind second-place Manchester United on goal difference and 15 points off leader Manchester City.

Claude Puel's side went close twice through Jamie Vardy, while Wilfred Ndidi's header was acrobatically pushed away by Thibaut Courtois.

Eliza admitted that the #MeToo movement inspired her to come out toward her abuse and it gave her "the ability to speak out". He said they "treated Eliza liked family" and he doesn't understand why she would lie about him now after all of these years.

Morata's frustrations got the better of him as he picked up a yellow card for a petulant foul on Harry Maguire towards the end of another lacklustre showing, while Marcos Alonso had a stoppage-time free-kick pushed around the post by Schmeichel as Leicester kept Chelsea at bay. "We suffered a lot in the first half and at the start of the second half but when I chose to put fresh energy the game changed".

Antonio Conte thinks other players are also to blame and not just striker Alvaro Morata for Chelsea's failure to score in their 0-0 draw with Leicester City on Saturday. I am enjoying living in England and with my players.

Japanese striker Shinji Okazaki nearly gifted Leicester the flawless start eight minutes in when the attacker was teed up by Chilwell down the left win from close range, but despite being six-yards from goal, the former Mainz player sliced his shot high over the bar.

After the match, the 48-year-old said his players were exhausted after Wednesday's 0-0 draw with Arsenal in the Carabao Cup.
