Chelsea played a goalless draw against Leicester City at Stamford Bridge this evening, much to the frustration of the Chelsea faithful.
Chelsea were ran ragged in the first half by Jamie Vardy and co, and the Blues struggled to cope with the energy and intensity of the Leicester players.
Antonio Conte revealed after the game that the Chelsea players were too tired in the first half, which led to the poor display by the players.
Conte said: “I think we played with a lot of top players against Arsenal, and then again today against a very good team,” said the Chelsea manager.
“I think a lot of our players were tired.
“In the first half Leicester ran more than us, they played better than us.
“But we knew we were playing against a good opponent, maybe the worst opponent we could have played in this moment.
“We suffered a lot in the first half.”
