Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois has slammed the club’s fans who voiced their dissatisfaction during a third consecutive 0-0 draw.
Sections of the Stamford Bridge crowd booed during and after Leicester City escaped west London with a well-deserved point, despite having been reduced to 10 men during the second half after Ben Chilwell’s dismissal. Antonio Conte was subjected to jeers after he opted to substitute Eden Hazard for the tenth time this season, while Tiemoue Bakayoko was singled out for criticism following another underwhelming performance in the Chelsea engine room.
- It doesn’t help when the fans boo and whistle after each misplaced pass. We didn’t play well but that’s when we need the fans behind us, said Courtois.
The Blues forward Alvaro Morata again struggled in front of goal and has now scored just twice in his last 10 matches, but Conte insists other players need to start sharing the burden.
