Prior to Chelsea’s 3-0 win over Leicester City, Antonio Conte was asked before the game to explain why Diego Costa failed to play against Leicester City amid reports of a bust-up between Costa and Conte.

Conte insisted before the game that Costa’s absence was purely down to  his fitness.

Conte said: “On Tuesday, Diego stopped in the training session with a pain in his back.

“This is not the first time we play without Diego. You have time to prepare, and we prepared very well for this game.”
