Thibaut Courtois hits out at Chelsea fans after Leicester City draw

Three 0-0 draws in as many games marks what has been a very frustrating week for Chelsea.

Despite having the majority of possession against Leicester City on Saturday, the Blues, spearheaded by the struggling Alvaro Morata, simply couldn't break the deadlock.

They remain third in the Premier League but can be overtaken by Liverpool on Sunday if they manage to beat Manchester City at Anfield.

In his post-match press conference, Antonio Conte blamed his side's poor display at Stamford Bridge on a lack of composure in front of goal.

"I think the problem is for the team, not only for Morata," said the Italian. "Compared to last season we are conceding less and showing more solidity.

"But we haven't had great quality in our finishing. A lot of time defenders have had chances to score but didn't take them.

"We have to try to improve in this aspect, but the problem is not just for Morata, or [Michy] Batshuayi when he plays. We have to improve our quality in the last step."

Chelsea fans made their frustrations very clear late on in the game by booing and whistling at the players whenever they made a mistake.


And it's safe to say Thibaut Courtois isn't happy about the abuse they received.

Speaking to Sky Sports, the Belgian goalkeeper slammed Chelsea fans for booing when they should have been encouraging them. He said:

"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."

Courtois' feelings towards being booed are understandable, but when you've drawn three consecutive games 0-0, it's easy to see why Chelsea fans are agitated.

It's not often players hit back at their fans and unfortunately for Courtois he can probably expect some backlash for his comments.
