EPL: Leicester City coach, Puel reacts to Chilwell red card against Chelsea

EPL: Leicester City coach, Puel reacts to Chilwell red card against Chelsea

Anotnio Conte's side missed the chance to go above second-place Manchester United, and could now be overtaken by Liverpool if they beat Manchester City on Sunday.

Crystal Palace continued their rise up the table under former England manager Roy Hodgson by beating Burnley 1-0, Bakary Sako scoring the only goal of the game with an angled left-foot drive in the 21st minute.

This is the first time in the club's history Chelsea have had three 0-0 results in a row, and their fourth consecutive draw across all competitions hints at a side missing the quality in the final third which they had shown in abundance earlier this season.

Riyad Mahrez has been directly involved in 14 goals (7 goals, 7 assists) after 22 Premier League games this season; nine more than he had managed after as many games in 2016-17 (five - three goals, two assists).

He said: 'I think that honestly that to find an excuse or alibi we paid a lot for the Arsenal game.

To the surprise of nearly everyone, the Stamford Bridge encounter ended 0-0, as Chelsea were unable to put down a 10-man Leicester.

The Blues will host the Foxes at Stamford Bridge on 13 January and Vardy is expected to lead his side's attack against the Premier League winners after making himself available for the clash.

"We played Wednesday night and played against a really good team in good physical form like Leicester after only two-and-a-half days".

On Sanchez, he added: "We are talking about a top player in a moment when you can buy him with a price not so high". We tried to create chances, to score, and we are not suffering defensively.

Chelsea manager Antonio Conte turned towards youngster Christensen as a replacement for Gary Cahill instead of the fit-again David Luiz who was named on the bench for the London side. We suffered a lot in the first half in the start of the second half. I understand Southampton are unhappy like I was not one time, more than one time when the mistake is against us.

Conte was asked why Chelsea apparently have not joined the race for Sanchez, with Michy Batshuayi failing to convince as a back-up to Alvaro Morata and "half" striker Eden Hazard often used instead as a "false nine".

Puel's men had 12 attempts on Chelsea's goal in the first half, the most for an opposition team in opening 45 minutes of football in the Premier League for 15 years.
