Chelsea star Thibaut Courtois hits out at fans following goalless draw with Leicester City

Chelsea star Thibaut Courtois has hit out at his own fans for booing and whistling his team-mates during the Blues’ goalless draw with Leicester City on Saturday.

The west Londoners were frustrated by the visitors and were unable to breakdown a stubborn Foxes defence down.

Even when full-back Ben Chilwell received his marching orders in the second half Chelsea still failed to find the back of the net.

The result moves Antonio Conte’s side level with second-placed Manchester United on 47 points, who still have a game in hand.

Speaking after the clash, Courtois felt as though the Stamford Bridge home fans didn’t give the support they should have.

“It doesn’t help when the fans boo and whistle after each misplaced pass,” Courtois told Sky Sports. “We didn’t play well but that’s when we need the fans behind us.”
