Conte: Barkley to play against Norwich in FA Cup

Conte remains coy about his long-term future but says he is happy in London

The challenge of competing on four fronts as well as the huge form of runaway leaders Manchester City has lead to Antonio Conte's men being 16 points behind City with 22 games played.

A smattering of dissent could be heard during Saturday's Premier League clash with Leicester, which was Chelsea's third goalless draw in a week.

"And then I chose to pick the same formation after two and a half days and maybe I made a mistake because many players didn't recover from this effort".

Sensex, Nifty Scale Fresh Record Closing Highs
Japan's Nikkei rose 0.26 per cent, while Sydney advanced 0.1 per cent, Seoul and Singapore were each up 0.3 per cent. The sensex registered intra day high and low at 34,936.67 and 34,687.21 respectvely.

Antonio Conte believes fatigue is to blame for Chelsea's run of three games without scoring a goal.

"Honestly, I prefer that we win this game and concede a goal, at least we would have the three points", the German worldwide told the club's official website. I saw a lot of players very exhausted.

"We played a lot of effort against Arsenal on Wednesday, then to play a really good team in good physical form like Leicester was hard. We suffered a lot in the first half and at the start of the second half", Conte said. With the Blues playing their fifth match in just 15 days, they have struggled to perform at their very best and yet again had problems against a Leicester City side, which was down to 10 men for 25 minutes. "It is hard weeks for everyone and there are lots of mistakes that we are doing".

African ambassadors to United Nations blast Trump remark as 'racist'
The White House has not denied that Trump said "s--hole" though Trump has already pushed back on some depictions of the meeting. President, are you a racist?" - but there's no getting around that more people in the media are willing to use that label.

Conte added: "I am fully committed to Chelsea, to work with my players to try to improve the club in the football aspect".

Antonio Conte's Premier League champions are yet to win since calendars flicked over to 2018, drawing all four of their games in all competitions and failing to score in their last three.

Jamies Redknapp feels that Alvaro Morata's drop in form can be easily explained while Chelsea go looking for alternatives. Two weeks ago, Chelsea pummelled Stoke City 5-0 at the Bridge and life was a bed of blue roses for the club's supporters who were eyeing the second half of the season with relish. I saw Eden (Hazard) was very exhausted so he came off.
