Conte’s Chelsea Collected An Unwanted Record After Their Draw With Leicester

during the Premier League match between Chelsea and Leicester City at Stamford Bridge on January 13, 2018 in London, England.

Chelsea’s 0-0 draw with Leicester City on Saturday has led to a pretty bizarre, and unwanted, statistic for the Blues. 

Going into the game, Antonio Conte was desperate for a win, having drawn with Norwich in the FA Cup and Arsenal in the league and Carabao Cup respectively in their previous three matches.

The Pensioners are not by any means having a poor season but given Manchester United’s improvements and Manchester City’s incredible form, Chelsea have perhaps taken a back seat in terms of the discussion around the crème de la crème of English football this term.

What won’t help this perception either is the fact that Saturday’s 0-0 draw with the Foxes was, bizarrely, Chelsea’s third goalless game in a row – something which has never happened in the club’s history.

Coming out of this slump is an inevitability but Conte will be hopeful it comes sooner rather than later with their FA Cup third round replay against the Canaries being played next Wednesday night.

For the winners, a home match against Newcastle United awaits in the fourth round on January 28.
