How to Watch Chelsea vs. Leicester City

Conte had always planned to rotate his options at Norwich, who visit in a third round replay on Wednesday, and field the same side against Arsenal in last Wednesday's Carabao Cup semi-final first leg and against Leicester.

After a quiet start to the second half, Antonio Conte made a double substitution by bringing on Willian in place of Fabregas and also withdrawing Hazard for Pedro.

The Blues played out a goalless stalemate with Leicester City on their return to Premier League action on Saturday and, despite the fact that they played the last 25 minutes against 10 men, Conte's side just couldn't break the deadlock.

"I saw many players were very exhausted and they didn't recover from the Arsenal game".

Vardy is undoubtedly Leicester's most important striker and helped the club win a shock Premier League title in the 2015-16 season under Claudio Ranieri, scoring 24 goals that season.

After a run of four straight wins before Christmas, Leicester has lost three of their last five matches and drew 0-0 with Fleetwood in the FA Cup third round last weekend. "We didn't suffer defensively and we tried to win the game but I think at the end a draw was fair".

Asked if fatigue was the reason for taking off Hazard and Fabregas so early, Conte replied: "Yes". Playing away from home at Chelsea will be a very hard task for the Foxes but they might just cause the Blues some problems.

Chelsea had seven shots on target in this match - only twice since 2003/04 have they had more in a Premier League home game in which they failed to score (9 vs Newcastle in November 2008 and West Ham in January 2014).

Conte was forced to make one change in the first half when Gary Cahill tweaked his hamstring during a foot race with Jamie Vardy.

"I think the problem is for the team, not only for Morata", said the Italian.

The hosts were handed a boost when Chilwell was shown a second yellow card for catching Moses, but they found it hard to create openings as Leicester sat back.

Speaking to BBC Sport, Lawrenson said: "Arsenal's defence of the FA Cup ended in style, if you can call it that, at the hands of Championship side Nottingham Forest on Sunday".
