"Football is this, our job is very hard". I don't know the time he needs to recover.

British media have reported that Chelsea are asking Juventus manager Massimiliano Allegri or former Barcelona coach Luis Enrique to replace Conte as soon as this summer.

The Blues will host the Foxes at Stamford Bridge on 13 January and Vardy is expected to lead his side's attack against the Premier League winners after making himself available for the clash.

The second half picked up where the first half left off, as Chelsea continued to look off the pace in the games.

"In games against great teams, we have always had good solutions". In football, anything can happen and you must be ready. I am fully committed in this and I am happy in what I am doing now and what I did in the past.

The Chelsea manager has heaped praise on Vardy for his goalscoring abilities, but stressed that the west London club were never interested in signing the England worldwide. I don't ask to change the situation.

The north London side are now in sixth place as they try to get back into the top four this season under Arsene Wenger and bring Champions League football back to The Emirates. We are talking about young players.

Fresh off two consecutive goalless draws against Norwich City and Arsenal, Chelsea are by no stretch of imagination at their best, and Leicester should be looking to exploit that.

Conte thinks that the big Premier League teams are aiming to "kill" each other in the transfer market as Manchester City and Manchester United reportedly tussle over Alexis Sanchez.

However, outside of the two goals given up to Arsenal in their first encounter of the year, Chelsea have kept Courtois's goal on lockdown.

"I think the last pass is missing, the final part to score the goal".

Puel said: "At the end the feeling is mixed".

The Foxes beat Huddersfield 3-0 in their latest league encounter, but had gone four matches without a win prior to that, losing three of them.
