Courtois slams Chelsea fans after Leicester draw

Antonio Conte blames fatigue after Chelsea are held to third straight stalemate

For the third game running, Chelsea failed to find the net and supporters are suddenly beginning to turn on manager Antonio Conte as it's the first time in the club's history that they've drawn three consecutive games 0-0.

"Leicester had a lot of chances in the first half, and we did not respond until the second half when we brought on fresh faces, which led to good chances".

Chelsea stayed in third place, behind second-place Manchester United on goal difference and 15 points off leader Manchester City. "We created chances to score but at the end the result was fair".

When looking to the bench, Conte did not have the players required to change the game as Morata once again struggled.

Chelsea are scheduled to play United at Old Trafford on February 25, unless the Blues reach the Carabao Cup final at Wembley, which will be staged on the same day.

Many of the Chelsea faithful, however, are losing faith in the Italian.

Okazaki missed the target from eight yards out, Jamie Vardy poked a shot wide and then dragged another across goal before Thibaut Courtois made an excellent diving stop to keep out a header from Ndidi.


Despite going down to 10 men with over 20 minutes to play Leicester weren't put under any significant pressure, as Conte somewhat surprisingly withdrew both Hazard and Fabregas for Pedro and Willian.

Crystal Palace 1-0 Burnley Crystal Palace took a further step towards Premier League survival with a 1-0 victory over Burnley which extended the visitors' winless run to seven games.

Leicester's relentless pressing made it hard for the Blues to create opportunities, even after they were reduced to 10 men following the second yellow card shown to Ben Chilwell.

I have no doubt Alvaro Morata could be the best striker in the Premier League if played properly.

He then turned provider for Manuel Lanzini, his strike partner netting twice in five minutes to take the game away from their hosts.

Watford 2-2 Southampton Abdoulaye Doucoure's controversial last-gasp equaliser denied Southampton a first win in 10 matches.

West Bromwich Albion picked up their first win since August in the league as first-half goals from defenders Jonny Evans and Craig Dawson gave them a 2-0 triumph over Brighton and Hove Albion.
