Conte said he always planned to play "almost the same team" against the Foxes as he did against the Gunners in the Caraboa Cup.
It took less than 15 minutes of the second half for Conte to introduce Pedro and Willian but in taking off Hazard and Fabregas, Chelsea lost their two best attacking threats, and the two players this system is created to benefit.
Eden Hazard had a chance on the break in the 26th minute after finding space to unleash a low shot from the centre of the box but Kasper Schmeichel produced a good save. "But there is something unusual if, after the first game we lost against Burnley, the press pushed quickly to sack me for another coach".
He said taking off Cesc Fabregas and Eden Hazard was an easy decision: "I saw they were were very, very exhausted".

The Foxes have shown some good stuff under Claude Puel and both teams have scored in each of their last seven away games, albeit they have lost each of the last two by a 2-1 scoreline to Watford and Liverpool respectively. "If you don't score, you're lucky the game finishes 0-0".
"It should be quite an open game, but I can see the Gunners dropping more points".
