  1. Post update

    That's all the football for today but we're back tomorrow for coverage of Wolves v Manchester United (20:00 BST kick-off).

    Alistair Magowan's report from Bramall Lane is available on the website, while Neil Johnston has penned words on that draw at Chelsea.

    You can catch up on Saturday's Premier League action with our round-up.

    And don't forget to tune into BBC One at 22:30 BST for highlights on Match of the Day 2.

  2. 'This is home for me'

    FT: Chelsea 1-1 Leicester


    More from Chelsea boss Frank Lampard speaking to Match of the Day: "It's very early for us. We have to be patient as we are working towards something.

    "Two or three nil would have taken the game away from them but we didn't take those chances. That's the story of our season so far. We need to be more clinical, for sure. It is defining.

    "It is the first of many moments from Mason [Mount]. I have absolute confidence in him.

    "This is home for me and I really appreciated the support. It's my club, I played here so long and I'm slightly disappointed we didn't get the win but I'm thankful to the fans.

    "We have had a tough start - to go to Manchester and get beaten the way we did then lose the Super Cup when I thought we were the better team."

    Steve Conroy: Naive thinking from many Chelsea fans. Frank is working with a new side, young players. Two games in, some patience and support rather than negativity.

    Gh0sT_6P0: Today Leicester lacked a clinical edge.

  4. 'It is my fault'

    FT: Chelsea 1-1 Leicester

    Leicester City

    More from Leicester boss Brendan Rodgers to Match of the Day: "It is my fault, the mistake [that led to Chelsea's goal], because I ask my players to build in the game. But it was a brilliant response.

    "We were outstanding in the second half but didn't win the game. We came out with a positive mindset and had chances to put it to bed.

    "The most important thing is getting the players into those positions. It's still very early in the season. In the second half, I thought we were very good. We will look for three points next week.

    "Frank [Lampard] will do great here. It's just time, stability and constant work."

  5. 'I don't use tiredness as an excuse'

    FT: Chelsea 1-1 Leicester


    Chelsea boss Frank Lampard on BBC Radio 5 Live: "The first 25 minutes were fast, we had quality. We could have scored more goals and I was delighted at that start. It was up to us to keep that momentum up and we didn't. We needed to keep the pressure up and we didn't. There will always be things to work on, it's early on in the season but we have to remember we need to get points and improve."

    On being tired from the Super Cup game: "I don't like that as an excuse. We travelled back late on Thursday, it was a late game, it was a long flight. There might be an element of tiredness but there were also problems which we could have fixed that had nothing to do with tiredness. If we had scored when we were playing well that would have changed everything. To go 2-0 up would have caused them more problems."

  6. 'Only disappointment was we should've won'

    FT: Chelsea 1-1 Leicester

    Leicester City

    Leicester City manager Brendan Rodgers said: "I was very pleased with how we played, to come here against a top-class team and the way we played was very good.

    "I'm disappointed with the [Chelsea] goal but I assume responsibility with that as I ask the players to build the game. When they make mistakes it is my fault. But I'm happy with the level of our football, the speed of our game and the only disappointment was we should've won the match.

    "It is a point but we move on next week and hope for three. At half-time I said I felt we were well in the game. Defensively our organisation was good and we created enough chances to win the game. It is never easy to come to play to places like here. We played like a big team.

  7. 'We believe in each other'

    FT: Chelsea 1-1 Leicester

    Leicester City

    More from Leicester's Wilfred Ndidi speaking to Match of the Day: "It was a positive result because we tried to come back. It is something we should have won in the second half.

    "I am very disappointed. I try not to think about it. I just try to move on. It was mixed feelings for me [to score] because of that first goal.

    "We dominated the second half and were high up the pitch so that was positive for us. We are a good team and believe in each other.

  8. 'Delighted for Mason'

    FT: Chelsea 1-1 Leicester


    More from Frank Lampard to Sky Sports: "You can attack, but still be in positions to not allow the counter-attack. I'm not here to play great attacking football and then concede counter-attack goals. We need to show more than we did. I was under no illusions that there would be moments like this. We have to work on the pitch on the things we can improve."

    On Mason Mount's goal: "I am delighted for Mason. It was a really good finish and at that point we were flying. He will be a bit disappointed because we have not got the three points."

  9. 'We have to have more personality'

    FT: Chelsea 1-1 Leicester


    Chelsea manager Frank Lampard speaking to Sky Sports: "It was a really good start, fantastic, and we could've been two or three goals up. We were quick, bright, energetic, then we allowed Leicester back in the game and in the second half I was not very happy, we offered them too many chances on the counter attack.

    "We can only look ourselves. In all our matches I have been delighted in big passages of having the ball but we didn't have enough angles or options to keep the ball moving. We have to have more personality, we saw that in midweek, but today we didn't have that."

  10. 'Manager has shown faith'

    FT: Chelsea 1-1 Leicester


    More from Mason Mount speaking to Match of the Day: "With the squad we have we can maintain that intensity for 90 minutes. But that's something we have to work on.

    "It means a lot to me. There was only one thing on my mind and that was to try and score.

    "The manager has put so much faith in me and I want to prove that I can perform. I had a good pre-season and I need to build on that."

  11. 'I don't think Lampard will be worried about fitness'

    FT: Chelsea 1-1 Leicester

    Frank Lampard

    I watched Chelsea all the way through pre-season and not that many players in the Chelsea team played full 90 minutes more than twice. Any ex-pro will tell you that you want three, four, five full games under the belt before the start of the season. That way it does not feel painful anymore. You are playing 90 minutes without feeling it. Frank was trying to learn the capabilities of his players. Add on top of that going to Istanbul to face Liverpool - an incredibly good team. They worked really hard in that game, there was extra time, it went on to over 1am local time but then these all sound a bit like excuses. Chelsea will get fitter, there is no doubt about that. In comparison to Leicester today, they were miles behind. I don't think Frank Lampard will worry too much about that. That side will come.

  12. 'What I dreamed of'

    FT: Chelsea 1-1 Leicester


    Chelsea goalscorer Mason Mount speaking to Sky Sports: "Coming through the academy and being at the club since the age of six, this was what I dreamed of.

    "Playing at home and scoring, both came at once for me. I got on the right side and nipped in there and got the ball. It was high-pressing, attacking football. I almost tripped over but managed to stay on my feet!

    "In the next 70 minutes I don't think we were as good as in the first 20 minutes. It was a positive for me but as a team there is stuff we need to work on."

  13. Get Involved

    Ervianto: For me Chelsea look like a mid table team: full of energy in attack but no ability to control the game, plus woeful defending.

    Robbie: Chelsea just aren't firing on all cylinders. I don't think this is down to lack of experience but the dysfunctional chop and change over the year.

    Ieuan Latham: Definitely a game of two halves but I felt Leicester could have had 3 points today if they had taken one or two of their chances.

    James Maddison
  14. 'Come away disappointed'

    FT: Chelsea 1-1 Leicester

    Leicester City

    Leicester City midfielder James Maddison tells Sky Sports: "We come away disappointed, if you come to Stamford Bridge and play like that you have to take your chances.

    "I scored seven goals last season and I want to improve and go to that next level so I have to put that chance away. But I'm practicing and working on my game."

    On Wilfried Ndidi's performance to score the equaliser after being at fault for Chelsea's goal, Maddison added: "His reaction was brilliant, to show the character and make amends with a bullet header deserves a lot of praise. He doesn't get the praise he deserves and he does the part of the game no-one wants to do."

  15. 'Chelsea just deserved a point'

    FT: Chelsea 1-1 Leicester

    Pat Nevin

    Former Chelsea and Scotland winger on BBC Radio 5 Live

    The first ten, 15 minutes were fantastic for Chelsea. The fans were loving it and the atmosphere was exciting. In that time they could have scored two, three, four goals there. They needed a second goal and it never came. Eventually Leicester knew that space would open up in the second half. At the end of the first half, they began to build on momentum and they were the better side by some distance. Chelsea were tired, probably because of the midweek games. They probably just about deserved the point. If anyone deserved three points, it was probably Leicester.

  16. Post update

    FT: Chelsea 1-1 Leicester

    Wilfred Ndidi was clearly still bothered about his first-half mistake in that interview.

    He barely looked up from the floor and James Maddison stepped in to praise his teammate for his response in the second half.

  17. 'It is a mixed feeling'

    FT: Chelsea 1-1 Leicester

    Leicester City

    Leicester goalscorer Wilfred Ndidi speaking to Sky Sports: "I think we put the first half aside and pushed up. We had to react.

    On his mistake: "It is something I am trying not to think about. It keeps coming up in my head but it's football so I have to move on.

    "I don't know. It is a mixed feeling. I tried it [set-piece for the goal] a couple of times with James Maddison in training and he said I could score from those chances.

    "We can take the positives. We had a couple of chances. We will try to improve in every game. We did well in the second half."

  18. Get Involved

    Geoffrey Dare: A sad but realistic expectation is that Chelsea will win nothing this year. Yes, it's early in the season but if you can't win your basic HOME games against mid table teams then to recover position with other top top teams seems an insurmountable task.

  19. Post update

    FT: Chelsea 1-1 Leicester

    Frank Lampard walks onto the pitch, high-fiving his players before applauding the Chelsea fans.

    It wasn't quite the blockbuster return home he was hoping for.
