The Blues continued their stuttering form as they were held at Stamford Bridge by Leicester City.

Despite the Foxes being reduced to ten for the final 22 minutes thanks to Ben Chilwell's red card, the Premier League champs were forced to settle for a point in the goalless encounter.
Amazingly, it was the third successive stalemate for Conte's side.
Chelsea drew 0-0 at Norwich City in the FA Cup last Saturday before battling out another stalemate with Arsenal in the Carabao Cup on Wednesday.
And that is enough to write their name into the record books.

It is the first time in the Blues' entire history that they have been held to a goalless draw three times on the spin.
Chelsea did not manage to build up any momentum against Claude Puel's outfit at the Bridge as they attempted to end their recent barren run.

Star man Eden Hazard was starved of service throughout the contest before he was repalced on the hour mark.
