Chelsea boss Antonio Conte keen to put Jose Mourinho rift behind him

Leicester City handed major boost with key player set to return this weekend against Chelsea

The stalemate came after last Saturday's 0-0 draw at Championship side Norwich City in the FA Cup third round, which was then followed in midweek by another night of no goals as they drew the first leg of their League Cup semi-final with Arsenal.

As things stand on the point tally, Chelsea are now on level terms with second-placed Manchester United with the Devils yet to play a game.

Took greater responsibility for monitoring Vardy and Shinji Okazaki when Gary Cahill left the pitch injured, and assuming the captain's role came easily to the Spain global.

Chelsea were still in disarray after the interval and Riyad Mahrez's deflected effort nearly crept in, prompting Conte to send on Willian and Pedro for Hazard and Fabregas.

Leicester began with great energy and should have gone ahead when Chilwell cut back to Shinji Okazaki inside the six-yard box, only for the Japan global to steer over.

It was an open end-to-end encounter but it was Claude Puel's men who were posing the bigger threat and it took a superb reflex save from Thibaut Courtois to keep out Wilfred N'didi's 14th-minute header.

Fabregas almost put Chelsea ahead against the run of play, but the midfielder's drive was tipped over by Schmeichel.

Chelsea manager Antonio Conte turned towards youngster Christensen as a replacement for Gary Cahill instead of the fit-again David Luiz who was named on the bench for the London side.

Conte says our attacking struggles are down to the whole team and not any one individual.

Leicester were soon back on top after the restart. Mahrez looked risky every time he received the ball, and nearly broke the deadlock with a deflected effort that went just wide. Cesc Fabregas had two good efforts - twice testing Kasper Schmeichel - and seconds from the end the Danish keeper pushed away a free-kick from Marcos Alonso.

Vardy has been in good form for Leicester so far this season, scoring nine goals and making one assist in 21 Premier League games ahead of the trip to Stamford Bridge on Saturday.

Newcastle dominated the first half, but squandered a series of chances and might have conceded a penalty before Ayew struck.
