  • Leicester City handed major boost with key player set to return this weekend against Chelsea

With Manchester City dominating the top flight of English football this term (16 points above Conte's side), there has been some disturbance at Chelsea, who are the defending champions but are more or less out of the race to retain their title.

After a run of four straight wins before Christmas, Leicester has lost three of their last five matches and drew 0-0 with Fleetwood in the FA Cup third round last weekend.

On Friday Conte had described Leicester as the "worst team" his worn out group of players could come up against this weekend, following their midweek Carabao Cup semi-final first leg, and Foxes boss Claude Puel was left ruing a missed opportunity to take all three points off the defending champions. My plan was to play with one team in the FA Cup against Norwich, and then these two games with nearly the same players.

Jonny Evans and Craig Dawson scored to secured a 2-0 win for West Bromwich Albion over Brighton & Hove Albion - their rirst victory in 21 league games. The Belgian is the one who everyone connected to Chelsea turns to when they are need of a goal.

"To play Wednesday night and then today against a really good team, a team in really good physical form like Leicester, after only two and a half days", he told reporters at his post-match press conference.

Antonio Conte attributed Chelsea's lacklustre performance in Saturday's goalless draw against 10-man Leicester to fatigue.

Yet the Italian struggled to provide clarity when asked whether he could understand Chelsea fans being confused by an apparent lack of interest from their club in the Chile forward. "We have great players also and quality in the squad and a great attitude all the time in training sessions on the pitch", said Claude Puel.

"The first was harsh and the second yellow card is harsh at this moment in the game", said Puel.

The Chelsea back-line will more or less be the same with Conte switching between Antonio Rudiger and Gary Cahill, with Thibaut Courtois, Cesar Azpilicueta and Andreas Christensen being the regular names in defence. "Me and the club know very well this situation and for this reason we must have patience to understand there is a process and we are ready to face this process".

"I don't think it is only Morata's problem, also the other players, because we are not scoring goals, we are not conceding, but we are not creating chances".
