Chelsea missed a chance to go second in the Premier League as they were held to a 0-0 draw by a relentless Leicester City side that finished the match with 10 men.

Whether it's fitness concerns or a tactical decision which leads to Conte's tendency to remove Hazard from the fray, supporters are unhappy that their best player isn't being allowed to help the side when they're chasing a goal.

Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois has conceded that Leicester City "were the better team" for the majority of the game in their goalless draw at Stamford Bridge today.

A win for Chelsea at Stamford Bridge will see them move ahead of Manchester United and into second place in the table, while a surprise victory for Leicester will see them move to within a point of seventh-placed Burnley. What we believe is there are some players in world football that if you have the chance to sign them in January, March or July, you have to try.

Earlier this week Antonio Conte reiterated his commitment to Chelsea as he insisted he will not walk away from the club at the end of the season.

Chelsea drew 0-0 at Norwich City in the FA Cup last Saturday before battling out another stalemate with Arsenal in the Carabao Cup on Wednesday.

The hamstring injury sustained by Chelsea captain Gary Cahill against Leicester City is not serious, according to head coach Antonio Conte.

Asked about Mourinho's "contempt" comments following Saturday's goalless draw with Leicester, Conte said: "I think that I said (I'd) stop the story".

However, recent reports suggested the Blues are struggling to make headway, with Juventus refusing to drop their £60million valuation of the player.

Chelsea were still in disarray after the interval and Riyad Mahrez's deflected effort nearly crept in, prompting Conte to send on Willian and Pedro for Hazard and Fabregas.

And Redknapp believes Conte's Chelsea future may well not extend beyond the end of the season.

They were soon given a major boost for the final 20 minutes as Leicester were reduced to 10-men, as the impressive Chilwell was given his marching orders for two yellow cards in the space of five minutes, his second for a late challenge on Victor Moses.

Marcos Alonso has scored 12 Premier League goals since the start of last season, more than any other defender.
