Morata urges Chelsea fans to scrap controversial new chant

"Where the food is nicest"
Will Leicester be the last team I play for?" We are used to seeing this and he's a fantastic player.

"To only lose two of the players that won the league, I don't think you can complain about that".

Apart from striker Morata, the club's record signing from Real Madrid, new boys Antonio Rudiger, Davide Zappacosta and Tiemoue Bakayoko also featured against the Foxes.

Chelsea boss Antonio Conte was asked about the song and its content at a post-match press conference but head of communications and public affairs Steve Atkins quickly stepped in.

'I think Baka is improving his physical condition.

Both sides struggled to find a finishing touch before Alvaro Morata put Chelsea ahead before half-time.

In 2013, the Football Association warned supporters of all clubs that chanting the word "Yid" could result in arrest as part of an attempt to stamp out discriminatory language at football grounds.

But the hosts gave themselves a great hope getting something meaningful in the encounter when Chelsea goalie Thibaut Courtois brought down Jamie Vardy in the 60th minutes in which the referee blew a penalty.

"This is good news for us", Conte told the club's website.

Chelsea went in search of more goals in the closing stages and also introduced Eden Hazard, but 2-1 was how the score remained. I'm happy to help the team win.

Leicester have lost 11 of their last 13 games against Chelsea in all competitions, with their only two non-defeats in that time coming in the 2015-16 Premier League season (W1 D1). N'Golo Kante became the unlikely source for the 2nd goal - scoring from 25 yards out! "We need time. In football there is not a lot of time but we are working hard", Conte said.
