Chelsea make unwanted history with third straight 0-0 draw

Jose Mourinho shakes hands with a Chelsea coach while his counterpart Conte walks straight onto the playing surface

"Or you can expect contempt", Mourinho told reporters.

The duo have traded barbs over recent weeks, with Conte claiming Mourinho was suffering from amnesia after the Manchester United boss branded some of his contemporaries - without naming any individuals - "clowns" for their antics on the touchline.

Conte shifted back to the 3-4-3, with Alonso and Moses pushing forward.

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. Despite Ben Chilwell's red card, the Foxes held on to clinch a point from the game. "A tactic to play and go to kick an opponent?"

"It was a good game for us, we showed a lot of quality, we played well, but if it were 11 v 11 I think we would have got the win", he said.

Tired Chelsea are feeling the strain from a busy schedule - but there's no let up coming for Antonio Conte's men, writes Peter Smith. This season isn't the only season the Manchester clubs have spent a lot of money.

Conte said: "Everyone is frustrated after another 0-0". He says what system we use does not make a difference at the moment. The Portuguese responded by alluding to Conte's hair transplant: "I'm not going to lose my hair to speak about Antonio Conte".

It's a poor run of results for the defending Premier League champions, who can still rely upon excellent defensive organisation but look desperately short of attacking inspiration.

The two managers have continued to snipe at each other since then.

Jan 4, 2018: Mourinho suggested that he has mellowed over the years, unlike the likes of Conte. I do not know if he said this for me. "I prefer to (be) more mature, better for my team and myself".

"Cahill was a muscular problem, but not a serious problem", Conte said.

It was Alan Pardew's first league victory since he took over as manager nine matches ago at the start of December.

The striker is the league's top scorer with 20, three more than nearest rival Mohamed Salah. We have great players also and quality in the squad and a great attitude all the time in training sessions on the pitch.

"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".

On Friday Conte had described Leicester as the "worst team" his worn out group of players could come up against this weekend, following their midweek Carabao Cup semi-final first leg, and Foxes boss Claude Puel was left ruing a missed opportunity to take all three points off the defending champions.
