Antonio Conte and Chelsea make unwanted history following Leicester City stalemate

Perhaps his long, drawn out feud with Jose Mourinho is getting to Antonio Conte.

The Manchester United boss made the claim on Friday as both bosses seek to let their feud fizzle out.

February 2017: Mourinho tipped Chelsea to win the Premier League, but not without calling them "a very defensive team who win the title with counter-attack and set-piece goals, so I don't think they will let it slip but football is football".

"It's basically become a five at the back whereas previous year it was more of a three, and they can't get out".

"The problem is for the team, not only for Morata", he said.

"The first thing I have to find is the right balance".

Chelsea drew the Foxes to a 0-0 draw at Stamford Bridge in an uninspiring performance.

"It was the same". Compared to last season we are conceding less, we are showing great solidity defensively. "It's an important game, we are third but we want to finish higher up the table so we need to win our games". The history of Chelsea is very clear.

Antonio Conte said the back-to-back battles against arch-rivals Arsenal, and the quick turnaround time in between fixtures took a toll on his team.

"We played a lot of effort against Arsenal on Wednesday, then to play a really good team in good physical form like Leicester was hard".

"We played with nearly the same players as against Arsenal". We did this. In the FA Cup we played with one team, in the Carabao Cup we played another team, and today we played nearly the same team as Wednesday.

Asked if he would extend his contract with Chelsea, Conte added: "In this case, I think the club has to decide to send me away". Leicester went down to 10 men when defender Ben Chilwell was booked twice in five minutes midway through the second half.

When looking to the bench, Conte did not have the players required to change the game despite Willian and Pedro coming on as Morata once again struggled and Cahill's injury took up one of their options.

The Foxes dominated possession for large periods of the encounter and created the better chances than the home team.

Jonny Evans and Craig Dawson scored to secured a 2-0 win for West Bromwich Albion over Brighton & Hove Albion - their rirst victory in 21 league games. "At the end the result was fair". "I think a lot of our players were exhausted".
