Another day, another 0-0 draw for Chelsea.

Despite Leicester City going down to ten men with 20 minutes remaining, Antonio Conte's side were simply unable to find a way past their visitors on Saturday.

Seventeen shots at goal - seven of which on target - and 56% possession tells you all you need to know about how wasteful the Blues were.

It means they've now drawn their last three games in all competitions, against Arsenal in the Carabao Cup on Wednesday and Norwich City in the FA Cup last weekend.

Drawing at home is always frustrating, but there was one moment in particular at Stamford Bridge that infuriated Chelsea fans and, put simply, they've had enough.

In the 58th minute, with the scores level at 0-0, Conte strangely decided to replace Eden Hazard and Cesc Fabregas.

Conte threw on Willian and Pedro in their place, but the question Chelsea fans were all asking is why take off two of your best players when you're in need of a goal?

Check out some of the reaction below.


Chelsea fans wants answers and you can hardly blame them.

Hazard wasn't having the best game admitted, but he's their most dangerous player going forward and can create something out of nothing.

As for Fabregas, the Spaniard makes Chelsea tick and without him they lacked creativity in midfield.

Chelsea v Leicester City - Premier League

The draw means Chelsea could lose third spot in the Premier League depending on how Sunday's game between Liverpool and Manchester City pans out.

Should Liverpool beat City, they will move level on points with the Blues and into third thanks to a superior goal difference.
