Chelsea failed to win for the fourth match in a row in all competitions as they scraped a 0-0 draw against 10-man Leicester on Saturday.

The Foxes dominated possession for large periods and created the better chances but had the sting taken out of their display when defender Ben Chilwell received two yellow cards in the space of five second-half minutes. He was shown no mercy by referee Mike Jones in the 68th minute when he brought down Victor Moses, shortly after fouling Willian.

Shinji Okazaki, Wilfred Ndidi and Riyad Mahrez all went close as the visitors created a number of chances in a dominant opening hour.

Chelsea looked leggy and short of ideas. Cesc Fabregas had two good efforts – twice testing Kasper Schmeichel – and seconds from the end the Danish keeper pushed away a free-kick from Marcos Alonso.

The Blues are now level on points with second-placed Manchester United, who play on Monday.

Leicester have 31 points and remain in eighth.
