Daniel Amartey shines as Leicester City held Chelsea

Leicester City handed major boost with key player set to return this weekend against Chelsea Foxes boss confirms Ajaccio raid

In that absurd move, the manager took two of his best players off the field when they needed a goal the most.

Antonio Conte and Chelsea made unwanted history following Saturday's stalemate against Leicester City.

Huddersfield 1-4 West Ham United Manuel Lanzini fired a second-half double as West Ham won 4-1 at Huddersfield for their biggest win of the season.

Chelsea 0-0 Leicester City Chelsea endured a third successive goalless draw in an enthralling encounter against excellent 10-man Leicester.

Antonio Conte's Premier League winning team have fallen way behind Manchester City and even second placed Manchester United could now extend their lead over the Blues. "We created chances to score but at the end the result was fair".

But Conte is adamant Morata isn't the only one to blame for Chelsea's profligacy.

However, although Conte admits he is a huge admirer of the England global, he says that Chelsea are not considering a move to sign him.

An injury that forced Chelsea captain Gary Cahill off late in the first half added to Conte's problems.

A second booking in the space of five minutes for Chilwell meant Leicester had to play out the final 20 minutes a man light, and the Blues could not make their numerical superiority count.

Liverpool moving on with Coutinho gone
"It was his dream (to move to Barcelona ) and there was a moment when we had to accept that". Oxlade-Chamberlain said that the Reds played good football even when Coutinho did not play.

"Obviously we all feel a little bit exhausted, past year we went from week to week, but now we have already played a lot of games".

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.

Further doubts have been cast over David Luiz's future at Chelsea as the Brazilian was only named on the bench despite Conte's rotation.

Conte's men were gifted an unexpected lift when Chilwell, booked moments earlier, lunged into a studs-up tackle on Victor Moses in the 68th minute, earning a red card from referee Michael Jones.

Chelsea then left Wilfred Ndidi completely unmarked at a corner, but the midfielder's header was well saved by goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois. Then we tried to win the game.

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

Just two goals in eight Premier League games, Morata's poor form continued against Leicester.

OVER AT THE HAWTHORNS: West Brom ended their miserable Premier League run on Saturday, beating Brighton and Hove Albion 2-0 to record their first league triumph in 21 games.
