Chelsea boss Conte eases Mourinho tension: Was even 'contempt' about me?

Chelsea boss Conte eases Mourinho tension: Was even 'contempt' about me?

July 2017: After Chelsea won the title, Conte said: "Two years ago Chelsea finished 10th".

But Ben Chilwell received two yellow cards inside five minutes in the second half, giving his side a tough final 20 minutes.

Chelsea's stuttering form in front of goal continued against Leicester City on Saturday and made a piece of unwanted history for the Blues. However, the pressure stayed on, and moments later Chilwell again caused problems only for Vardy to shoot into the side-netting.

On Friday Conte had described Leicester as the "worst team" his tired group of players could come up against this weekend, following their midweek Carabao Cup semi-final first leg, and Foxes boss Claude Puel was left ruing a missed opportunity to take all three points off the defending champions. But it's not excuse, Leicester had more intensity than us and more aggression, they started very offensive and pressed us high up the pitch.

Jan 6: Mourinho acknowledged he made mistakes but declared that he would never be banned for matchfixing.

Mark Noble's opener for the London side was cancelled out before the interval by Huddersfield midfielder Joe Lolley, but the outstanding Marko Arnautovic struck within 30 seconds of the restart and then provided assists for both Lanzini's efforts.

But the United manager does not want to be drawn on his chances of beating Manchester City to a deal.

The former Stoke striker stabbed home a 68th-minute equaliser just four minutes after his introduction to cancel out Jordan Ayew's opener.

Dragovic struggled to find his feet initially as he was troubled by Morata in the first-half but steadied as the game progressed.

Chelsea are scheduled to play United at Old Trafford on February 25, unless the Blues reach the Carabao Cup final at Wembley on the same day.

Watford pulled a goal back through an Andre Gray header and then equalised in controversial fashion right at the finish when Abdoulaye Doucoure turned in a Troy Deeney flick-on.

For the third successive away game, Arnautovic found the back of the net for the Hammers, his latest strike coming 11 seconds into the second half.

Meanwhile, Jonny Evans helped to end West Bromwich Albion's long wait for an EPL win with a 2-0 home victory over Brighton.
