Jamie Vardy (right) had four efforts on goal for a vibrant Leicester sideTen-man Leicester produced an outstanding display to earn a point at third-placed Chelsea - although they should probably have come away from Stamford Bridge with all three.The Foxes dominated possession for large periods and created the better chances but had the sting taken out of their display when defender Ben Chilwell received two yellow cards in the space of five second-half minutes. He was shown no mercy by referee Mike Jones in the 68th minute when he brought down Victor Moses, shortly after fouling Willian.Claude Puel's side went close twice through Jamie Vardy, while Wilfred Ndidi's header was acrobatically pushed away by Thibaut Courtois.
Chelsea looked leggy and short of ideas. Cesc Fabregas had two good efforts - twice testing Kasper Schmeichel - and seconds from the end the Danish keeper pushed away a free-kick from Marcos Alonso.The Blues are now level on points with second-placed Manchester United, who play on Monday.Leicester have 31 points and remain in eighth.

Foxes' good work undone by Chilwell red

Ben Chilwell received two yellow cards in five second-half minutesIt was the generally more timid of the two managers who got their side to play the more exhilarating football at Stamford Bridge.Puel's side harried the Blues from the first whistle, and should have scored at least once from one of their three chances in the 10th minute.England striker Vardy, fit again after a groin problem, found the side-netting and fired just wide, while Shinji Okazaki also missed narrowly after more initial good work by Vardy.Riyad Mahrez has been the subject of rumours linking him to Liverpool and Arsenal, but today his mind was clearly on the matter in hand. He was exceptional in midfield and found Vardy twice with two exquisite passes, only for the striker to miss the target with one strike and see another blocked by Gary Cahill.Leicester's best chance of the match fell to Ndidi whose instinctive header was brilliantly pushed away - one-handed - by Courtois.The Foxes looked set to turn the screw midway through the second half, but had to change their gameplan when England Under-21 defender Chilwell was sent off for a second bookable offence. Nevertheless, the defence continued to look comfortable against a Chelsea attack bereft of ideas. The only time Schmeichel was severely tested was moments before the final whistle when he tipped Alonso's low free-kick around the post.
Tired-looking Blues deliver lacklustre performance

Ndidi snapped at the heels of Eden Hazard (left) 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 headerChelsea manager Antonio Conte speaking to BBC's Match of the Day: "I think we played with a lot of top players against Arsenal, and then again today against a very good team. I think a lot of our players were tired."In the first half Leicester ran more than us, they played better than us. But we knew we were playing against a good opponent, maybe the worst opponent we could have played in this moment. We suffered a lot in the first half."On Alvaro Morata: "I don't think it is only Morata's problem, also the other players. We are not scoring goals, we are not conceding, but we are not creating chances.On injury to Gary Cahill (who came off in the 33rd minute): "I think he is with the doctor now, but it's OK. I do not think it was serious."Leicester boss Claude Puel on Ben Chilwell's sending-off: "I think it's harsh, it's harsh. The two yellow cards - it is not balanced. It's difficult to accept, but the point makes it a little bit OK."On Riyad Mahrez's future at Leicester: "We can see from today he is enjoying his football, he is happy in playing, in training, he is happy with us and his team-mates. There is a lot of speculation about the players, but of course we are happy with him, and we want to keep our best player."
Foxes see red again - the stats
Chelsea have drawn three consecutive games 0-0 in all competitions for the first time in their history.
Leicester had 12 shots in the first half - the most of any visiting team in the opening 45 minutes of a Premier League match at Stamford Bridge since 2003-04. However, they managed just two shots after the interval.
Chelsea had seven shots on target in this match - only twice since 2003-04 have they had more in a Premier League home game in which they failed to score (nine v Newcastle in November 2008 and West Ham in January 2014).
The Foxes have kept consecutive clean sheets in the Premier League for the first time since May 2017.
Only Watford (four) have been shown more red cards than Leicester (three) in the Premier League this season.
Leicester were shown the last Premier League red card of 2017, and the first of 2018.
