Chelsea star hobbles off after suspected hamstring injury

Kelechi Iheanacho appears to be part of Claude Puel's plans

Chelsea are thought to be interested in adding a back-up striker in January, with Michy Batshuayi looking for a loan move, but Antonio Conte insists that he's never requested a move for Leicester City's Jamie Vardy. Cahill's clearance was eventually completed by a covering Rüdiger, which gave Cahill the opportunity to take a seat and receive some treatment.

Unusually Leicester had 53.6 per cent of possession in the first half, as Wilfred Ndidi matched N'Golo Kante by winning the ball back on eight occasions, and Tiemoue Bakayoko struggled to get into the game either offensively or defensively.

"We will see in this game".

"The good thing is to keep this point at the end". The Hammers had improved defensively under David Moyes but they have slipped of late and their last five outings have witnessed a grand total of 19 goals, while the London side have only won once on the road all season.

The Foxes had the better of the chances and Antonio Conte reacted by replacing Eden Hazard, ineffectual with Leicester's intense closing down robbing him of service, and Cesc Fabregas with Willian and Pedro before the hour mark. We can cause them problems. Chelsea, however, couldn't make the most of that advantage. But the Foxes were more proactive and dominated possession in the opening stages very impressively. It's hard to know what to expect from Leicester, after the highs of two seasons ago and the lows of their last campaign, but this was reminiscent of the former.

Still, they sit solidly in the middle with 8 wins, 8 losses, and a goal difference of +2.

Only Hazard could match his quick footwork and while Mahrez is clearly a left-footed right-winger, he shows a willingness and ability to go down the line, too. Going forward there is enough talent in Vardy and Okazaki while the defenders are solid enough as well. Chelsea's record signing certainly got his Stamford Bridge career off to a good start with six top-flight goals in his first six games, but since then it's increasingly become a case of hit and miss for Morata. He was fortunate to escape without a booking for diving.
