'Contempt' with Jose Mourinho mutual - Antonio Conte

Alvaro Morata of Chelsea in action against Leicester

The appointment of Alan Pardew failed to spark an immediate turnaround, West Brom lurching into a winless run so long that only the miserable 2007-08 Derby County team possess a longer drought in Premier League history.

We will have all the latest updates from around the grounds right here so don't touch that dial.

Morata managed just three touches in the opposition box all game - his worst return from a completed Premier League game this season - while only four completed crosses from 19 attempted illustrated the wayward service on offer. There are six 3pm kick-offs for us this afternoon with Chelsea's clash with Leicester the standout.

The result capped a hard week for Chelsea boss Conte, who could be in the final months of his turbulent reign despite last season's title triumph.

I said I stop.

Asked if Chelsea are considering a bid for Vardy, Conte told his news conference at Cobham on Friday: "No, honestly we didn't speak about him, but I repeat we are talking about a really good player". "We are not talking about my work. The situation is very clear".

'Contempt' with Jose Mourinho mutual - Antonio Conte

Alvaro Morata, who missed a hatful of chances at Arsenal in Chelsea's 2018 opener, was ineffective up front again on Saturday, repeatedly bullied out of possession by the impressive, imperious Leicester centre-back Harry Maguire.

The hosts were handed a way into the game when Chilwell was dismissed after two bookings in five minutes, but even then the closest they came was an effort from Tiemoue Bakayoko that went over the bar. "I hope today I can score and help the team. And for me contempt means the end of the story". "For sure we want to avoid the Mourinho season".

Chelsea stayed in third place, behind second-place Manchester United on goal difference and 15 points off leaders Manchester City.

1' - We are underway at Stamford Bridge!

"Looking at historical and current form, you wouldn't give Leicester much chance".

Leicester began with great energy and should have gone ahead when Chilwell cut back to Shinji Okazaki inside the six-yard box, only for the Japan worldwide to steer over.
