Chelsea’s stuttering form in front ofgoal continued against Leicester City
on Saturday and made a piece of
unwanted history for the Blues.
With a goalless draw against the
Foxes, who played the last 22 minutes
with 10 men following Ben Chilwell’s
second yellow card at Stamford
Bridge, Chelsea were held 0-0 for the
third successive match in all
competitions for the first time.
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.
Eden Hazard was starved of service
and endured a quiet outing before
being replaced in the 58th minute,
while Alvaro Morata’s dip in form
showed no signs of ending as he failed
to register a single shot on goal.
The Blues – who could slip behind
Liverpool and into fourth on Sunday –
will hope to get back on track in their
FA Cup third-round replay at home to
second-tier Norwich City on
