Outstanding Thibaut Courtois saves a scoreless draw for lacklustre Chelsea

An underwhelming Chelsea were unable to break ten-man Leicester down in a disappointing performance at Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea were held to a goalless draw for the third time in succession in all competitions as they were held 0-0 by 10-man Leicester City in a vibrant Premier League encounter at Stamford Bridge.

Antonio Conte's side contrived to make the visitors look world-class in the first half and matters didn't improve after the break. A chorus of boos echoed around the ground when Conte hooked Eden Hazard and Cesc Fabregas before the hour mark, and while replacements Willian and Pedro certainly livened up...

Drinkwater 5/10 as Chelsea again held scoreless in draw vs. Arsenal

Chelsea stuttered to a disappointing 0-0 draw in the first leg of their Carabao Cup semifinal with Arsenal on Wednesday at a raucous Stamford Bridge where they failed to take their chances against below-strength opposition.

Andreas Christensen and Cesc Fabregas both should have done better with headers and Victor Moses also had opportunities to score but was denied several times by Gunners keeper David Ospina. It was another frustrating off-night for Blues striker Alvaro Morata who fluffed his...

I've always worked at clubs making 'economic sacrifices' - Antonio Conte

The FC crew delve into Antonio Conte's history with transfer requests and debate whether he should be given money to spend in January.
Antonio Conte insists Chelsea's priority is to secure a top-four finish in the Premier League this season, and isn't worried about coming second to Man City.
The ESPN FC crew question whether or not Alvaro Morata has what it takes to lead the line week in and week out at Chelsea.
Antonio Conte admits Alvaro Morata's confidence could dip after the striker missed three clear chances in Chelsea's draw at Arsenal.

Chelsea head coach Antonio Conte has said he never makes any "major demands" about signings because he has always worked for clubs limited in the market by "economic sacrifices."

Conte was frustrated by Chelsea's failure to acquire Romelu Lukaku and Alex Sandro last summer, while Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Ross Barkley also turned down moves to Stamford Bridge in the final days of the window.

Why Alvaro Morata is losing the mental battle in one-on-one situations

The ESPN FC crew question whether or not Alvaro Morata has what it takes to lead the line week in and week out at Chelsea.
Antonio Conte admits Alvaro Morata's confidence could dip after the striker missed three clear chances in Chelsea's draw at Arsenal.

Football fans are a pessimistic sort at the best of times, but few scenarios during a match elicit such pure dread as watching your team's No. 9 go one-on-one with the opposing goalkeeper.

On the evidence of his last two-and-a-half hours of football, Chelsea striker Alvaro Morata looks like he feels much the same. In the space of 145 minutes against the alarmingly welcoming defences of Stoke and Arsenal, he saw the whites of a goalkeeper's eyes five times -- and failed to score once.

It's tempting...

Alvaro Morata 'not lucky' in front of goal, says Antonio Conte

The ESPN FC crew question whether or not Alvaro Morata has what it takes to lead the line week in and week out at Chelsea.
Antonio Conte admits Alvaro Morata's confidence could dip after the striker missed three clear chances in Chelsea's draw at Arsenal.

Antonio Conte refused to criticise Alvaro Morata for missing several key chances to score in Chelsea's 2-2 draw with Arsenal, insisting that the striker has simply not been "lucky" in front of goal in recent games.

Morata found himself behind the Arsenal defence with only Petr Cech to beat three times at the Emirates Stadium on Wednesday evening, twice missing the target and hitting the third attempt straight at the goalkeeper as Chelsea threatened to score a dramatic winning goal in the final seconds.

Morata's misses haunt Chelsea as Blues settle for 2-2 draw at Arsenal

Chelsea ended their run of festive fixtures with a highly eventful 2-2 draw at Arsenal on Wednesday.

The Blues could have been two up inside the first 15 minutes only for Alvaro Morata to fluff his lines on both occasions. The Spaniard missed the target when through on goal and then ailed to connect with a beautifully weighted cross from Moses. Arsenal then grew into the game and drew two brilliant saves out of Thibaut Courtois with the first from Alexis Sanchez being tipped onto one post, rebounding...
