Chelsea duo Thibaut Courtois and Cesc Fabregas were doing their utmost to keep Blues supporters entertained during the international break.

The Belgian number one, who joined the club as a teenager from Genk, helped his national team secure their spot at the 2018 Russia World Cup over the weekend.

Courtois spent three seasons on loan at Atletico Madrid before returning to Stamford Bridge to dislodge club legend Petr Cech as the first choice keeper.

Fabregas was left out the most recent Spain squad after being sent off in Chelsea's humiliating 3-2 home defeat to Burnley on the opening weekend of the season.

The former Arsenal and Barcelona midfielder was excellent on his return, getting on the scoresheet in last weekend's 2-0 win over Everton.

Fabregas, 30, started only 13 Premier League games in last season's title winning campaign and will be vying for a single spot with new signings Tiemoue Bakayoko and Danny Drinkwater.

Antonio Conte's Chelsea face a trip to Leicester City on Saturday afternoon, hoping to stretch their winning streak to three.

Banter between Fabregas & Courtois goes viral

Courtois found a GIF on Twitter in which he was trolled by his Spanish teammate in the tunnel ahead of a 3-0 defeat to West Brom.

He shared it with Fabregas and the banter begun from there. See how it played out below.

The 25-year-old goalkeeper recently assessed Chelsea's start to the 2017/18 season, which has seen them take six points from nine.

"The Burnley game was not good, even when we [still] had 10 men," he said. "We had a sloppy first half but the second half we were more aggressive and we transferred that into the game against Tottenham.

"They had better chances but we won and we needed to improve against Everton. We knew it would be a hard game but we handled it very well.

"Manchester United have started very well; City have bought in well and I think Liverpool showed [against Arsenal] they are up for the task this season.

"The Premier League is always hard and we will try to be there until the last day and see if we can retain it."
