Antonio Conte delivers 'good news' update on Gary Cahill injury

"It is normal for the manager of the club to have this situation", said Conte.

But Conte did insist that he would not walk away, he would only go if he is pushed.

Ross Barkley is expected to be fit to make his debut following a hamstring injury in Chelsea's FA Cup third-round replay with Norwich next Wednesday. After 14 matches in 46 days, the Blues are feeling the strain.

The 56-year-old also suggested that he wanted to see the Foxes impose themselves on Antonio Conte's champions and not just allow Chelsea to control the game.

Similarly, Leicester City had themselves a festive rough period with four losses in five games in the second half of December dropping them back a bit in the table.

When asked after the match about his decision to bring Hazard and Cesc Fabregas off, the Italian said, "I saw them and they were very exhausted. He played for the national team and is scoring with regularity in this league and is a good player, but this different - I am talking about him because you ask me and not the transfer market".

Despite having the majority of possession against Leicester City on Saturday, the Blues, spearheaded by the struggling Alvaro Morata, simply couldn't break the deadlock. He can play as a winger wide right or left and striker also.

The reliance on chief creators Eden Hazard and Cesc Fabregas to provide an opening is clear but when those two are suffering with heavy legs, as they were here, that becomes a major problem.

Former Juventus and Italy manager Antonio Conte has now given a new update about his future at Premier League giants Chelsea, with speculations about his future at the bridge going around in the tabloids for quite some time now.

A certain event at Stamford Bridge this afternoon sent social media into overdrive.

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

Jamie Vardy and his team-mates ran Chelsea ragged in the first half, though. "They play at home and they have a lot of solutions to play with a number of quality players".
