Key Battles That Could Decide Saturday's Meeting Between Chelsea and Leicester City

Kelechi Iheanacho

The Blues played out a goalless stalemate with Leicester City on their return to Premier League action on Saturday and, despite the fact that they played the last 25 minutes against 10 men, Conte's side just couldn't break the deadlock.

Its other goalless draws in the past seven days came against Norwich in the FA Cup and Arsenal in the first leg of their League Cup semifinal.

He will never admit that Mourinho has got under his skin, but the Blues' recent games have been frustrating to watch for their fans with team selection, tactics and individual player performances all drawing a fair amount of criticism. This is a game between the two last winners of the English Premier League and as a result, we should be able to witness a top quality game of football. "I think a lot of our players were exhausted".

Jamie Vardy and his team-mates ran Chelsea ragged in the first half, though.

He said: "I have another year of (my) contract with this club". We tried to create chances, to score, and we are not suffering defensively.

"I think he is with the doctor now, but it's okay, I do not think it was serious".

Asked if fatigue was the reason for taking off Hazard and Fabregas so early, Conte replied: "Yes. I saw many, many players very exhausted".

Heavy rain, plunging temperatures may produce flooding, then ice
From about 6 PM to midnight, rain starts mixing with sleet and forming an icy glaze on surfaces from the St. Lawrence River Valley, to the Adirondacks and Adirondack Coast and into northwestern Vermont.

There was a major injury concern for Chelsea as 33 minutes in club captain Gary Cahill pulled up with a hamstring injury after chasing down Vardy.

With Andreas Christensen rested, Luiz would normally have been the replacement playing in the centre of Chelsea's back three.

Further doubts have been cast over David Luiz's future at Chelsea as the Brazilian was only named on the bench despite Conte's rotation.

"The first thing I have to find is the right balance", he continued. Admittedly Stoke were shocking, but both Pedro and Willian in particular demonstrated their goal-scoring capabilities and appetite for attacking play as the Potters were put to the sword.

"This is not a problem with the system".

This weekend's Super 6 fixtures all come from the Premier League and we have looked into our crystal ball as we bid to win the jackpot with Sky Sports. The history of Chelsea is very clear.

Yet despite the extra man, Chelsea still found it hard to find a way through on goal, and the match ended in a disappointing 0-0 draw.
