Chelsea, Arsenal & Riyad Mahrez’s release clause

Chelsea, Arsenal & Riyad Mahrez’s release clause

Chelsea 0 – Leicester 0

Antonio Conte’s Chelsea dropped two points in the Premier League to Leicester on Saturday.

In another off-day for last season’s league champions, Chelsea were frustrated against the Foxes.

Indeed, Leicester were the far better team in the first half at Stamford Bridge as the Blues were below-par.

There was no comparison between Eden Hazard and Riyad Mahrez at the Bridge. The Algerian outshone the Belgian, who was subbed out the game by Conte before the hour mark.

It ends 0-0. A fully deserved point for ten-man #lcfc! 💪 #CheLei

‘Riyad Mahrez’s release clause’

After the Chelsea match, Foxes stopper Kasper Schmeichel spoke to the BBC about Mahrez.

The north African star has been linked with a move from the King Power Stadium this January.

Aside from Chelsea, the likes of Arsenal and Liverpool have been rumoured as possible suitors for Mahrez.

Yet, according to Schmeichel, any potential buyers have a big problem on their hands.

The Danish keeper confirmed that Mahrez has no release clause in his Leicester contract.

That means Mahrez would only be sold for a very high price.

Leicester City vs Fleetwood Town

Next up for Leicester is the FA Cup replay against Fleetwood Town on Tuesday night.

Jamie Vardy, having missed the match at Highbury with a groin injury, is in line to start for Leicester against his former employers.

Following the cup tie, the Foxes take on Watford at home next weekend in the Premier League. Claude Puel’s side are eighth in the division, three points behind Burnley.
