Chelsea future out of my hands, says Conte

Chelsea head coach Antonio Conte attributed the poor performance in the 0-0 draw with Leicester to tiredness

Antonio Conte thinks other players are also to blame and not just striker Alvaro Morata for Chelsea's failure to score in their 0-0 draw with Leicester City on Saturday.

Chelsea are scheduled to play United at Old Trafford on February 25, unless the Blues reach the Carabao Cup final at Wembley on the same day.

Chelsea stayed in third place, behind second-place Manchester United on goal difference and 15 points off leader Manchester City.

"I think... I said I'd stop. To play Wednesday night and then today against a really good team, a team in really good physical form like Leicester, after only two and a half days", he told reporters at his post-match press conference.

Conte said: "We are talking about a top player in a moment when you can buy him with a price not so high".

Both sides had plenty of chances in the first half and it was thought that the hosts would turn up the pressure at Stamford Bridge after the break but, before the hour mark even arrived, both Eden Hazard and Cesc Fabregas were hauled off and replaced by Pedro and Willian respectively.

Yet the Italian struggled to provide clarity when asked whether he could understand Chelsea fans being confused by an apparent lack of interest from their club in the Chile forward.

But Conte felt the Spaniard was not at fault for his goals drying up, having netted 12 for them in all competitions already this season, and felt the issue ran across the team.

Leicester's relentless pressing made it hard for the Blues to create opportunities, even after they were reduced to 10 men following the second yellow card shown to Ben Chilwell. "This is the history of this club for the manager".

Watford had trailed until Doucoure got on the end of substitute Troy Deeney's flick on and diverted the ball into the net past Southampton goalkeeper Alex McCarthy, with the ball appearing to come off his arm. But it's something that we are thinking about a loan until the end of the season.

"I prefer to do it the way I do it, much more mature, better for my team and myself, you don't have to behave like a insane guy on the touchline".
