Conte Frustrated As 10-man Leicester Hold Chelsea

Chelsea manager Antonio Conte turned towards youngster Christensen as a replacement for Gary Cahill instead of the fit-again David Luiz who was named on the bench for the London side.

Antonio Conte had a lot to answer for following Chelsea's 0-0 draw against Leicester City at Stamford Bridge on Saturday. Meanwhile, Chelsea have now drawn their last three games 0-0, and Conte needs to find a solution for his misfiring team.

The Foxes were reduced to 10 men with 20 minutes left to play as the full-back Ben Chilwell got his second booking of the match and was shown a red card.

And Redknapp believes Conte's Chelsea future may well not extend beyond the end of the season.

It is not the first time the Conte has made suggestions that he wants to leave Chelsea, making no secret of his dissatisfaction at the club's efforts in the summer transfer window.

Conte has reportedly frustrated some of his players with his intense personality and demanding training sessions and their inconsistent performances this season have added fuel to that fire.

Reports on Friday suggested the Blues boss could be preparing for life without Conte - with Luis Enrique and Massimiliano Allegri lined up to replace him.

"I think I saw a lot of very exhausted players", Conte said. We tried to create chances, to score, and we are not suffering defensively.

Given the speculation surrounding their manager, it was intriguing to note the response of Chelsea fans.

Chilwell set up Shinji Okazaki, who poked his shot wide before Jamie Vardy, restored to the Leicester line-up following injury, shot into the side-netting.

"It gives a lot of tranquillity and takes away any kind of pressure from the guy that comes behind you".

"It doesn't help when the fans boo and whistle after each misplaced pass".

Despite David Luiz being on the bench, Antonio Conte chose Andreas Christensen as the man to replace the England global.
