Mourinho 'ends' schoolyard spat with Conte by declaring contempt

Mourinho 'ends' schoolyard spat with Conte by declaring contempt

Arsenal legend Martin Keown thinks that Chelsea are running out of steam after watching the champions held to a 0-0 draw at Stamford Bridge by Leicester City.

Conte had always planned to rotate his options at Norwich, who visit in a third round replay on Wednesday, and field the same side against Arsenal in last Wednesday's Carabao Cup semi-final first leg and against Leicester.

The 26-year-old has been of interest to Chelsea and Antonio Conte for some time, and the Italian manager is hoping to be given the necessary funds by his board to sign Sandro in January. I will be 55 next week - we can not stop time and for players time means a lot. "We suffered a lot, then when I chose to put fresh energy on we had a big chance to score".

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".

"I think that I said (I'd) stop the story", Conte said after his side's stalemate, as quoted by Sky Sports. In both systems we are conceding less but, with both systems, we are scoring less than last season.

"But we haven't had great quality in our finishing".

Conte's future has been a subject of interest recently and earlier this week he said "anything is possible" when asked if he will stay on as Chelsea manager.

"In the first half Leicester ran more than us, they played better than us". We have to try to improve on this aspect.

"If there is somebody who should be angry or disappointed it could be the manager of the club but I'm not because I know the club tried absolutely everything to convince Phil to stay and carry on together".

The Foxes were reduced to 10 men with 20 minutes left to play as the full-back Ben Chilwell got his second booking of the match and was shown a red card. My plan was to play with one team in the FA Cup, and then these two games with nearly the same players.
