Leicester boss Puel: I wouldn't man-mark fantastic Hazard

Tiredness turned to frustration at Stamford Bridge, as Antonio Conte's fears about how his over-worked Chelsea side would cope with the intense press of visitors Leicester were realised.

But Conte did insist that he would not walk away, he would only go if he is pushed.

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. After 14 matches in 46 days, the Blues are feeling the strain.

For the third game running, Chelsea failed to find the net and supporters are suddenly beginning to turn on manager Antonio Conte as it's the first time in the club's history that they've drawn three consecutive games 0-0.

"No, honestly we didn't speak about him, but I repeat we are talking about a really good player", Conte explained, as quoted by

When asked after the match about his decision to bring Hazard and Cesc Fabregas off, the Italian said, "I saw them and they were very exhausted. 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.

It made for tense viewing for the Chelsea home support. Even if Hazard was having a bad game.

Chilwell's 68th-minute dismissal for two yellow cards allowed Chelsea to push forwards and Kasper Schmeichel saved Marcos Alonso's stoppage-time free-kick. We can cause them problems.

Since August 2014, Jamie Vardy has scored more Premier League goals against "big six" opposition than any other player (22 goals in 41 apps).

Leicester City will welcome back Jamie Vardy.

Asked if fatigue was the reason for taking off Hazard and Fabregas so early, Conte replied: "Yes".

A smattering of boos greeted both the half-time and full-time whistles at an exasperated Stamford Bridge, but speaking after the match Conte claimed that his players were still feeling the effects of their exertion against Arsenal in Wednesday's first leg of the Carabao Cup semifinal.

Coming back to his best, slowly but surely.
