We Were In Total Control - Antonio Conte Purrs As Chelsea Beat Leicester

Chelsea call for end to anti Semitic Morata chant

However it was his recovery from the injury which saw him miss Chelsea's pre-season and the start of the Premier League campaign.

Back in the heady days of summer 2K16, when transfer fees had about five less zeros than they do now, Arsenal were on the verge of paying £20 million for Leicester striker Jamie Vardy.

Speaking after the game, Kante said, "It is always special to play my old team".

Alvaro Morata is furious at the new Chelsea chant made in his name at the match this afternoon at Leicester City's King Power Stadium. "I am pleased for the player", he told reporters.

Chelsea boss Antonio Conte insists Eden Hazard will need time to regain full match fitness following the Belgian's worldwide return from injury.

However, Antonio Conte's side have won 13 of their last 17 Premier League away games (W13 D2 L2) and have only failed to score in two of these trips.

"It is a good day for the team and a good day for Alvaro".

The Chelsea victory means the Blues are third in the Premier League, one point behind the two Manchester giants, City and United.

"I am good but the most important thing is we are not in the first places and we look forward to moving ahead in the table".

Chelsea went in search of more goals in the closing stages and also introduced Eden Hazard, but 2-1 was how the score remained.

Pedro also paid tribute to Kante following a wonderful display by the Frenchman against his former club. "We need time. In football there is not a lot of time but we are working hard", Conte said.

"When we got back to 2-1 we just couldn't find that final bit that was required to get something from the game and I just feel at the moment the big moments aren't going our way".
