Chelsea misfires again in 0-0 draw against Leicester in EPL

Iheanacho has featured in just five matches since Puel joined Leicester in October

Antonio Conte's side were unable to develop any momentum as the visitors put on a fine display of high pressing to disrupt the champions.

Kasper Schmiechel was hardly tested at the other end aside from pushing an effort from Cesc Fabregas away.

Christensen will likely continue in place of Cahill alongside Antonio Rudiger and Cesar Azpilicueta in Chelsea's back three.

In the 2009/10 season, Ancelotti led the Blues to the Premier League title, pipping Man United to the post by a single point.

Gary Cahill came off in the 33rd minute for Chelsea with an apparent hamstring injury.

Should Liverpool beat City, they will move level on points with the Blues and into third thanks to a superior goal difference. He has made just two league starts this term after being named in the first XI only once in 2016-17 - sparking talk of a possible loan switch to Sevilla.

Another day, another 0-0 draw for Chelsea.

"I think we played with a lot of top players against Arsenal, and then again today against a very good team. I think a lot of our players were exhausted", Conte said during his post-match interview. "But at the same time I saw great will and desire to win the game".

"I think there is competition but at the same time don't forget you are talking about two young players and for Morata this is the first full season for him, and he is learning a lot from this experience".

He looked composed on the ball, showed good strength on several occasions to win possession and kept Morata under wraps throughout.

Hazard was also substituted by Conte in the Blues' midweek 0-0 draw with Arsenal, as well as the 2-2 draw played out between the sides at the turn of the year.
