Conte backs Morata after Chelsea are held by 10-man Leicester City

Chelsea FC news Misfiring Alvaro Morata will be back to his best in no time says former Blues star Joe Cole

Alvaro Morata has missed a series of golden opportunities in Chelsea's winless run

Their double substitution with less than an hour on the clock highlighted the home side's struggles to find a way through this Leicester defence - even tired, those two had been Chelsea's most likely route towards a goal against the run of play in a first half dominated by the Foxes.

And Schmeichel turned a Marcos Alonso free-kick behind for a corner in stoppage time as Chelsea missed their last chance.

Speaking before the visit of Leicester City on Saturday, Conte was pressed on whether he is searching for a striker to add competition for Alvaro Morata and Michy Batshuayi.

"I think not to find excuses or alibis, today we paid a lot for the effort [against] Arsenal".

Chelsea manager Antonio Conte - who is touted to be a top candidate for the vacant Italy coaching job - hinted yesterday that he might be ready to walk out on the club by saying that "everything is possible".

Leicester continued to put pressure on a sleeping Chelsea defence as the first half progressed, with Vardy finding it easy to burst through the Blues backline and into a unsafe area.

We tried to create chances, to score, and we are not suffering defensively.
