Thibaut Courtois slammed Chelsea fans after seeing his side fail to break Leicester as they were held to a goalless draw in a Premier League clash on Saturday.

The draw with Leicester was third in a row by the champions, something that did not go down well with the fans, who registered their displeasure by booing the team at the sound of the final whistle.

However, speaking to Sky Sports after the game 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.”

There was an incident outside Stamford Bridge when Courtois was returning to his car and in a melee of fans seeking photographs with the Belgian, one fell over and lashed out, kicking the goalkeeper’s trolley luggage. Courtois and the club confirmed that he was not hurt and neither was the supporter, according to the Telegraph.

Meanwhile, Antonio Conte was asked whether the answer to Chelsea’s recent problems in front of goal might be signing Alexis Sanchez, in the last six months of his contract at Arsenal, but the Italian said that this was not his responsibility.

“As you know very well, this is a topic I don't want to deal with the press. I'm the coach. I'm trying to do the best with my players, to try and improve my players, to try to work and give every day 110 per cent. Sometimes this is enough. Sometimes this is not enough. It's not my business, not my business.”
