Thibaut Courtois: 'Fans booing does not help Chelsea players'

Posted January 15, 2018

Chelsea were held at Stamford Bridge by 10-man Leicester City on Saturday, with the Foxes having the better chances and looking more risky throughout.

It was a torrid affair for the home side, with Eden Hazard being substituted for the fourth game in a row and Gary Cahill going off with a hamstring injury.

Conte's position has come under increasing scrutiny at Stamford Bridge, with constant hints since the summer that he has not been happy with the transfer policy at Chelsea.

There have been reports suggesting that Chelsea are eyeing a move for Vardy once again as Conte searches for attacking reinforcements, with Michy Batshuayi seemingly out of chances as Alvaro Morata's back-up.

Courtois told Chelsea TV: "I know we as a team didn't have a good game, it was our third goalless draw, but we need the fans here at Stamford Bridge to get behind the team and not, when a player has a bad pass or a bad shot, start booing and whistling".

Super Eagles, Gernot Rohr said he expected both Iheanacho and Ahmed Musa, who is also struggling to get into the Leicester team, to leave the King Power Stadium.

Puel said: "Riyad likes football". "We had a lot of chances in the game and we lost two points. It's a good feeling and it was important to play like this".

"But we knew we were playing against a good opponent, maybe the worst opponent we could have played in this moment. The most important thing is to put all your strength on the pitch and consider we are facing a lot of problems and despite this we stay there".
