Cahill suffers injury in Chelsea clash with Leicester

Chelsea were held to a goalless draw for the third time in succession in all competitions as they were held 0-0 by 10-man Leicester City in a vibrant Premier League encounter at Stamford Bridge. Chilwell's red card caused the Foxes no real issues as Marcos Alonso's late free-kick was the only real effort of note in the second-half, his curling shot palmed away confidently by Schmeichel.

Chelsea slipped to a disappointing 0-0 draw in their Premier League fixture against Leicester today and Blues goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois voiced his unhappiness with his own fans when talking to the press afterwards.

Conte says our attacking struggles are down to the whole team and not any one individual.

The result represented the first time Chelsea have drawn three straight matches 0-0 in their history, and Conte blamed fatigue rather than singling out the misfiring Morata.

Asked if Chelsea are considering a bid for Vardy, Conte told his news conference at Cobham on Friday: "No, honestly we didn't speak about him, but I repeat we are talking about a really good player".

FW Willian, 6 - Gave Chelsea more impetus going forward, which wasn't hard, but failed to find a way through Leicester's well-organised backline.

When I chose to put fresh energy (substitutes Willian and Pedro), the game changed.

The hosts were handed a boost when Chilwell was shown a second yellow card for catching Moses, but they found it hard to create openings as Leicester sat back.

The first came in the 63rd minute for bringing down Willian on the right-hand side of the pitch and just five minutes later as he caught Victor Moses high after lunging in to try and win the ball.

OVER AT THE JOHN SMITH'S STADIUM: Marko Arnautovic created three and scored the other as West Ham lifted themselves away from the Premier League relegation zone with a 4-1 victory over Huddersfield Town.

West Bromwich Albion picked up their first win since August in the league as first-half goals from defenders Jonny Evans and Craig Dawson gave them a 2-0 triumph over Brighton and Hove Albion.

"If you don't score, you're lucky the game finishes 0-0".

Abdoulaye Doucoure's controversial last-gasp equaliser denied Southampton a first win in 10 matches.
