Antonio Conte calls Leicester City “the worst team” to face for Chelsea this season

Morata celebrates after scoring against Leicester City in the Premier League

Chelsea are set to face Leicester City in a Premier League clash on Saturday and Antonio Conte says they are the ‘worst team’ his side can face at the moment.

The Premier League champions have endured a torrid season, losing four times in 21 games and getting dragged into third place, 16 points off Manchester City.

The form of Chelsea is not encouraging to say the least. The Blues have failed to score in each of their last two games after the 0-0 stalemates in the FA Cup third round match with Norwich and the Carabao Cup semi final draw with Arsenal at Stamford Bridge.

They get the chance to prove they can rise back to top form as they take on the Foxes at their own backyard. The form of Conte’s forward will be of great concern to him and he reckons a ‘strong’ Leicester is the ‘worst’ team to face at the moment.
