Chelsea could not cope with Leicester City high pressing and direct play in a 0-0 draw at Stamford Bridge with Nigerian midfielder Wilfred Ndidi in the heart of everything from the visitors.

Astonishingly, Victor Moses and his Chelsea side are yet to record a win in 2018 in which they have drawn 4 matches in all competitions and failed to score in the process.

On this occasion, champions Chelsea were terrible especially in the first half, as they escaped going behind only due to some poor finishing from Rihad Mahrez and Jamie Vardy, while goalkeeper Courtios produced a reflex save to beat away a header from the in-form Ndidi.

The second half looked like going the way of Chelsea when Leicester City left back Chilwell was sent of for a second bookable offense after lounging into Victor Moses who was quick to the ball with a cutting drive down the right flank.

Chelsea failed to really create clear-cut chances to win the game despite having an extra man advantage.

Up next for Chelsea is an FA cup replay against Norwich on Wednesday before going away to Brighton in the EPL next Saturday.

Leicester will host an FA Cup replay against Fleetwood Town on Tuesday and then welcome Watford to the King Power Stadium on Saturday.
