Cahill's clearance was eventually completed by a covering RĂ¼diger, which gave Cahill the opportunity to take a seat and receive some treatment. The Italian talked about how the tabloids had pointed fingers at him and his team, when they lost the opening fixture of the season to Burnley and that they have seen many ups and downs since then.

To the surprise of nearly everyone, the Stamford Bridge encounter ended 0-0, as Chelsea were unable to put down a 10-man Leicester.

Leicester had to play the final 22 minutes with 10 men after Ben Chilwell was sent off for two bookings, and their manager Claude Puel felt the incident had denied his side a chance of taking the three points.

Despite Leicester City going down to ten men with 20 minutes remaining, Antonio Conte's side were simply unable to find a way past their visitors on Saturday.

With only 41 Premier League goals this season, Chelsea have scored less than any of their top-four rivals and lag 16 points behind leaders Manchester City.

Chelsea's disappointing 0-0 draw against Leicester earlier today means the Blues have now created a unwanted new record. Cesc Fabregas had two good efforts - twice testing Kasper Schmeichel - and seconds from the end the Danish keeper pushed away a free-kick from Marcos Alonso.

Chelsea boss Antonio Conte had no complaints after their 0-0 draw with Leicester City. "We didn't play well but that's when we need the fans behind us", the 25-year-old told Sky Sports.

Asked if he was frustrated by his rivals doing such imposing deals, Conte replied: "I must be honest, no, because I understand that the other teams try to..." Chelsea was held to a 0-0 tie with Arsenal in the first leg of the League Cup semifinal.

"The ambition is not just for us to score but to continue to play after scoring and to always keep good ambition in our play".
