Chelsea drew 1-1 with Leicester at Stamford Bridge despite an impressive start which saw the Blues take an early lead through Mason Mount.

Despite the impressive start, the Blues failed to build on Mason Mount’s early goal with gave Leicester City the confidence to push Chelsea.

According to Kurt Zouma, fatigue after playing 120 minutes against Liverpool on Wednesday and Leicester’s intense pressure are the reasons for Chelsea’s inability to get a win against Leicester City.

Zouma said: “There is a long way to go and we are not worried.

“There are players who came back from loan – like me – and other players, the younger guys who came in.

“Now we are starting to understand each other. We just need to be more clinical. We just need to score more goals.

“We wanted to win the game but listen, I’d say we were maybe a bit tired in the legs. Obviously, Leicester played well.

“They pressed us very, very well and we had to deal with the pressure.”

Zouma added: “We were tired. We tried to press but we didn’t have the legs so maybe we have to stay more back, control the game a bit more, try to keep the ball a bit better. But these are the things we learn.

“I don’t know if UEFA were wrong to ask clubs to play extra-time. You should ask higher up.

“We had a long journey after the game and played 120 minutes there so it was difficult. We need to work hard.

“We have to prepare for Norwich this weekend now. Every game, we must win. We want to win this one, of course.”
