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

Jose Mourinho the Manchester United manager spoke out against Antonio Conte again on Friday

"I think to find an excuse or alibi, today we paid for our effort against Arsenal", said Conte. "At the same time, against Norwich we played 3-4-3 with Pedro, Willian and Batshuayi, but we didn't score", Conte said.

My plan was to play with one team in the FA Cup, and then these two games with nearly the same players.

Courtois told Chelsea TV: "I know we as a team didn't have a good game, it was our third goalless draw, but we need the fans here at Stamford Bridge to get behind the team and not, when a player has a bad pass or a bad shot, start booing and whistling".

'When I don't start it's quite amusing for me to see other people on the other side acting like victims when they're not the victims. "We suffered a lot, then when I chose to put fresh energy on we had a big chance to score".

Chelsea have now been involved in three consecutive 0-0 draws in all competitions for the first time in the club's history.

On Friday, Mourinho said he wanted an end to the story despite still harbouring ill-feeling towards Conte, who appears content to close the chapter.

Defending champs India beat Pakistan by 7 wickets
Deepak Malik was awarded as Man of the Match, while Muhammad Jamil was recognized as "Most Valuable Player". The win places India at the top of their table while the hosts closely follow them on the second spot.

Morata had a frustrating afternoon as Chelsea's lone forward and he has not scored since December 26, a run of five matches without a goal. We tried to create chances, to score, and we are not suffering defensively.

The Australian is concerned that Conte could be suffering from the much dreaded "second season" syndrome, much like former Chelsea boss Carlo Ancelotti did earlier this decade. In both systems we are conceding less but, with both systems, we are scoring less than last season.

Chelsea have always been admirers of the 26-year-old and boss Antonio Conte would like to make the deal happen in January if possible - providing he can persuade the Blues board to do so.

"It's the same for me contempt", he said. I never see this type of mistake in the Premier League before.

Jonny Evans and Craig Dawson netted past Socceroos goalkeeper Ryan to give the second-bottom Baggies their first league win since August.

Jordan Ayew's header on the hour mark had given the basement side the lead, but that was cancelled out eight minutes later by Newcastle substitute Joselu's low finish.
