Below-par Blues held by Leicester

Chelsea's 0-0 draw with Leicester City on Saturday has led to a pretty freakish, and unwanted, statistic for the Blues. "I continue to work and be professional and have good result".

The draw has now put Conte's men level with Mourinho's side, who have have a game in hand, which is very bad considering that there was a point in late December when they were favorites for the second spot after dismal showings by the Red Devils.

Conte has been out-spoken about Chelsea's transfer policy, which started in the summer with the high-profile failure to land Romelu Lukaku.

Sanchez has been linked with Manchester City, with Manchester United reportedly entering the bidding.

Alvaro Morata, who missed a hatful of chances at Arsenal in Chelsea's 2018 opener, was ineffective up front again on Saturday, repeatedly bullied out of possession by the impressive, imperious Leicester centre-back Harry Maguire. There's good news for Claude Puel as Leicester striker Jamie Vardy could make a return to the starting lineup after missing the clash against Fleetwood due to groin injury.

Kylie Jenner has been keeping fans guessing regarding her long-rumoured pregnancy since news first broke back in September previous year .

Conte said: "I said "hello".

"He knows very well my admiration for him".

Puel said: "He is close to signing and it's a good opportunity for us".

In France, I like Nice at a shade of odds against to beat an Amiens side who have won just one of their last seven, so hopefully Mario Balotelli can ensure the visitors hit a bum note following his intimate physiotherapy this week (Google it). He has been a key player for his side and his 24 goals helped Leicester win the title under Claudio Ranieri in the 2015/16 season.

Conte was asked whether Chelsea should join the race for Sanchez, but the Blues boss appears to expect City to pounce in a cut-price deal.

Winter Olympics 2018: Hockey Canada unveils team it will send to Pyeongchang
Canada has won 13 men's hockey medals, including nine gold, since the first Olympic hockey tournament in Antwerp in 1920. His KHL season runs until January 23, then training camp with his Canada teammates in Riga, Latvia, begins on January 28.

And Conte's comments on Alexis Sanchez on Friday may be interpreted as questioning Chelsea's approach.

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

Star man Eden Hazard was starved of service throughout the contest before he was repalced on the hour mark.

He will never admit that Mourinho has got under his skin, but the Blues' recent games have been frustrating to watch for their fans with team selection, tactics and individual player performances all drawing a fair amount of criticism.
