Commentary
  • 94'

    And that is that. An entertaining 0-0 draw and Leicester very deserving of their point.

  • 90'

    There are four minutes to be added on.

  • 90'

    Substitution: Change for Leicester as Iborra comes on for James.

  • 88'

    Booking: Morata, who has really struggled to make an impact, shows his frustration as he trips Maguire from behind. Yellow card.

  • 86'

    Chelsea aren't really creating any clear chances. They are dominating the play but most of their efforts are from outside the box.

  • 82'

    Substitution: Leicester make a switch as Vardy is replaced by Gray.

  • 79'

    Chelsea continue to press. Moses puts in a low cross that is cleared out to the edge of the box where Bakayoko places a first-time shot just over the bar.

  • 76'

    Most of the action now taking place in the Leicester half. Chelsea probe and work it around the box before Willian hits a low shot that Schmeichel saves easily.

  • 74'

    Substitution: Change for Leicester as Fuchs comes on for Okazaki.

  • 073'

    Chance! Kante, who scored against his former side earlier in the season, hits a shot from 25 yards that's straight at Schmeichel.

  • 71'

    Will that dismissal prove to be the turning point for Chelsea? They should at least be able to control the possession now and play on the front foot more.

  • 68'

    RED CARD! Chilwell gets his second booking in the space of five minutes and he's off. He slides in and catches Moses late as he nicked the ball.

  • 65'

    Chelsea are enjoying their best spell of the match as Moses gets the ball on the right corner of the box and drills a shot off target.

  • 63'

    Booking: Another yellow, this time for Chilwell. Chelsea are showing a little more adventure since the introduction of Willian and Pedro.

  • 61'

    Booking: Yellow for Okazaki as he fouls Willian around halfway.

  • 58'

    Substitution: Double switch for Chelsea. It's Willian and Pedro on for Hazard and Fabregas.

  • 57'

    Chance! So nearly the opener for Leicester as Mahrez's shot from outside the box takes a big deflection and spins just wide of the post.

  • 56'

    Booking: Kante is booked for a foul on Okazaki. Think that might be for an accumulation of fouls.

  • 55'

    Leicester still passing it around very confidently, finding spaces and pressing high when they don't have the ball.

  • 53'

    Albrighton clips a free-kick over the top towards Dragovic, who almost reaches on the stretch at the back post but can't turn it in.

  • 51'

    Willian and Pedro are both warming up for Chelsea. Can't imagine a change will be too far away if the game continues like this.

  • 47'

    Azpilicueta picks up on the right and looks for his favourite target Morata with a swinging cross. But Maguire is there to head clear.

  • 46'

    HALF TIME: Chelsea fans are audibly frustrated with that half-time showing from their side. Chelsea 0-0 Leicester City.

  • 45'

    Just one minute to be added on.

  • 42'

    Chance! Chelsea threaten for the first time in ages as Hazard drives forward and then passes to his right for Fabregas. He ignores Moses' overlapping run and instead his a shot across goal which Schmeichel tips over.

  • 41'

    Leicester continuing to dominate and look the more dangerous side. Every time they come forward they look as though they could create a chance.

  • 38'

    Chance! So sloppy to start with from Rudiger as he loses the ball in his own box. Okazaki picks up and sees a shot blocked before Albrighton fires a few yards from 20 yards.

  • 34'

    Good show of pace from Morata as he darts down the left side, goes round the outside of Dragovic and wins a corner in the box. But a poor delivery from the corner from Fabregas, who is not having a good game.

  • 32'

    Substitution: Cahill's afternoon is done. He has been trying to run his injury off on the sideline but to no avail and Christensen is on.

  • 30'

    Leicester have had 10 shots in the opening half an hour. All they haven't done is score, otherwise this has been a really impressive start.

  • 27'

    Groans from the home fans as Chelsea give the ball away two or three times inside a minute. So slack from the hosts.

  • 25'

    Seen very little of Morata so far, or Hazard for that matter. Chelsea have not got going at all and the visitors are controlling the game.

  • 22'

    Conte did say before this match that Leicester are the "worst" team that Chelsea could face right now, and it's looking that way. Mahrez is causing problems and Vardy is constantly making runs and getting behind.

  • 20'

    Chance! Good block from Cahill to deny Vardy, but Leicester keep the move alive and it's played into the box for Mahrez, who blazes way over the bar from the penalty spot.

  • 18'

    Booking: Kante tripped by James as he bursts through the middle and that's a yellow card to the Leicester midfielder.

  • 16'

    This has been a really entertaining start to the game. Leicester have not sat back, they have had 63% of the possession and have created the better chances.

  • 11'

    Chance! Leicester enjoying a very good spell. They work it around well in the Chelsea half and then slide it through for Vardy, who is running across goal and drags his shot wide of the far post.

  • 13'

    Save! A rare Chelsea attack as the ball is slipped through for Fabregas in the box and he forces Schmeichel into a save from a tight angle.

  • 12'

    Chance! Ndidi must think he has scored as a corner bounces kindly in the box for him to head at goal from 10 yards out, but Courtois makes a superb diving stop to keep it out.

  • 10'

    Chance! Another opening for the visitors, and again it's created by Chilwell. This time he plays it into the box for Vardy, who gets away from Rudiger and flicks a first-time shot wide.

  • 9'

    Chance! Chilwell does brilliantly down the left side, taking the ball in his stride and driving into the box. He then puts the cross on a plate for Okazaki, eight yards out at the near post, but the striker flicks it across goal and wide.

  • 8'

    Leicester build inside the Chelsea half but then Ndidi goes long and whacks it straight behind for a goal-kick. The visitors haven't done much in the final third yet.

  • 5'

    Aside from a short burst from Chelsea a couple of minutes ago it's been an even start to the game.

  • 3'

    Chance! A couple of efforts from outside the box from Chelsea, with Kante seeing his strike blocked and then Moses hitting a powerful shot from a corner that hits Alonso.

  • 2'

    Looks like Hazard is again in a free role behind Morata.

  • 1'

    KICK OFF: We're underway!

  • 0'

    We're only moments away from kick off now as the teams begin to make their way out of the tunnels.

  • 0'
