Conte tight-lipped on transfers after being denied by Ndidi - FCNaija

EPL By: Ambrose Udeme | 14/01/2018

Chelsea boss Antonio Conte refused to talk when asked about possible transfer business the champions may do in January in the aftermath of Victor Moses' failed attempt to get three points off Wilfred Ndidi and Leicester City side during Saturday's Premier League goalless draw at Stamford Bridge.

Ndidi and his troops dominated possession for large periods and created the better chances but had the wind taken out of their sails when defender Chilwell was shown two yellow cards in the space of five second-half minutes. His marching order came in the 68th minute when he brought down Moses, shortly after fouling Willian but the visitors held on for a draw.

The former Genk Man (Ndidi) who arrived Leicester City from Belgium a year ago snapped at the heels of Eden Hazard and Cesc Fabregas all match - he had the best defensive statistics of the visitors and also was unlucky not to score with a first-half header.

A frustrated Conte whose side have now drawn three consecutive games 0-0 in all competitions for the first time in the club's history in a post-match reaction when quizzed on whether he had a strong enough squad refused to give nothing away.

"In this case my answer is always the same - I am the coach and I give my opinion to the club.

"The club then see and make the best decision for the team." said the Italian on Sky Sports 

The Blues are now level on points with second-placed Manchester United, who host Stoke on Monday. Chelsea face an FA Cup replay at home to Norwich on Wednesday.
