The Chelsea chief watched his side's slump continue with a 0-0 draw against 10-man Leicester - a club record third stalemate in a row.

"I think... I said I'd stop".

The Foxes had more attempts on goal than their hosts, who were restricted to counter attacks all through the first half until the introduction of Pedro Rodriguez and Willian in the second half.

"I like in different moments of the season to speak with every player, to speak about improvement during training sessions, and about what we can do together to improve him".

"My plan was to play with one team in the FA Cup, and then these two games with nearly the same players".

Even when Leicester left-back Ben Chilwell was sent off midway through the second half for two bookings, the champions were unable to snatch a victor. There is competition. But don't forget we are talking about two young players. "This is the history of this club for the manager".

"I think not to find excuses or alibis, today we paid a lot for the effort [against] Arsenal".

Watford had trailed until Doucoure got on the end of substitute Troy Deeney's flick on and diverted the ball into the net past Southampton goalkeeper Alex McCarthy, with the ball appearing to come off his arm.

"I am fully committed in this and I am happy in what I am doing now and what I did in the past".

"Now I am fully committed for Chelsea, in this job to work with my players to try also to improve the club in the football aspect", Conte said.

Should Liverpool beat City, they will move level on points with the Blues and into third thanks to a superior goal difference.

Meanwhile, Jonny Evans helped to end West Bromwich Albion's long wait for an EPL win with a 2-0 home victory over Brighton.

Palace lost their first seven games of the season but are now five points clear of safety and Hodgson said: "We can look at the league table for a week or two without shivers running down our spine".

But the United manager does not want to be drawn on his chances of beating Manchester City to a deal.
