A lot of huffing and puffing against a ten man Leicester (from the 68th minute) but not much quality.

More misery for Conte and a chorus of boos at the final whistle.

First time Chelsea have gone three games without a goal in five years.

We were absolutely pissing it til the sending off. Looked the only side capable of scoring. After the red though we just defended, though Chelsea still barely mustered a threat.

Hazard didnt link up with anyone before he went off. All on a diffeent wavelength today. Maguire had Morata in his pocket. Which figures cos I took him out of the dream team!

And despite going off Chilwell played a good game.

Great result for us too even if we get gubbed tomorrow. Tight as a drum for the top four race and the relegation battle, just a shame the title race has been over for months.

The Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois criticised his club’s supporters’ attitude and said it was detrimental to the team after they booed Antonio Conte’s players’ third consecutive goalless draw at home to Leicester City.

There was dismay throughout another performance which lacked the familiar cutting edge of Conte’s champions and there were boos around the ground at full-time.

Speaking to the broadcaster Sky Sports, the Belgian said: "It doesn't help when the fans boo and whistle after each misplaced pass. We didn't play well but that's when we need the fans behind us.”
Like I told you - SALTIRE - they are teetering on the brink of an implosion.

This is the first time in five years they've gone three games without a goal, Conte and the board are not in sync and now the fans are turning. Conte is a lame duck manager, which doesn't help things either. Luckily for them they've now got a run of relatively easy fixtures to turn things around - though I think they'll go out of the League Cup to Arsenal and soon be out of Europe to at the hands of Barca.
