Jamie Vardy fit to return for Leicester at Chelsea after injury

But Leicester should have been in front by then after dominating a first half in which they mustered 12 goal attempts.

The home side had one last chance in stoppage time when they had a free kick from 25 yards out, but Marcos Alonso sent the ball over the bar and the game ended in a 0-0 stalemate.

Ndidi came close to scoring with a header in the 14th minute but his effort was parried away by Thibaut Courtois, as Jamie Vardy, Riyad Mahrez and Shinji Okazaki all came close to scoring too.

The Blues sit third in the standings and remain 16 points off the relentless pace being set by leaders Manchester City, but only a point separates them from United, who are set to host Stoke City on Monday night.

"Obviously we all feel a little bit exhausted, past year we went from week to week, but now we have already played a lot of games".

Netanyahu to arrive on six-day visit to India
In 1950, India recognised Israel, but did not establish diplomatic relations. "We can not always fulfil those requests", he said . Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi visited Israel last July in the first such trip by a holder of his office.

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".

Conte feels most of his top players were exhausted after the grueling first leg of the EFL Cup semi-final against Arsenal and it showed in their performance.

"Now I am fully committed for Chelsea, in this job to work with my players to try also to improve the club in the football aspect", Conte said.

Conte says we suffered for playing so soon after the tough midweek game against Arsenal, and with numerous same players.

Conte was asked why Chelsea apparently have not joined the race for Sanchez, with Michy Batshuayi failing to convince as a back-up to Alvaro Morata and "half" striker Eden Hazard often used instead as a "false nine".

The Bridge hasn't historically been a happy hunting ground for Leicester City (won just once since 1965), though Claude Puel can derive a lot of confidence from the Blues' shaky form.

Chelsea's Gary Cahill leaves the pitch with medical staff with an apparent hamstring injury.

Now with the rumblings over his future, Bookmakers have reacted and PaddyPower make it 5/6 that he won't be in charge of Chelsea for the first game of next season.

"I don't know how I can answer you", Conte added. My plan was to play with one team in the FA Cup, and then these two games with nearly the same players. Very exhausted. I think we played with tiredness today.
