Antonio Conte: Chelsea players "very tired"

Shannon Reynolds | 15 January, 2018, 04:19

The Blues goalkeeper said their fans' reaction during and after the game was detrimental to the team and that, instead, his side needed their full support.

"It doesn't help when the fans boo and whistle after each misplaced pass".

Sections of the Stamford Bridge crowd booed during and after Leicester City escaped west London with a well deserved point despite having been reduced to 10 men during the second half after Ben Chilwell's dismissal.

Antonio Conte's side were without their usual energy, the manager stating that his players were "tired" after the exhaustive run of the festive fixtures, substituting star players Eden Hazard and Cesc Fabregas early in the first half due to exhausted legs.

"We have to try to improve in this aspect, but the problem is not just for Morata, or Batshuayi when he plays". The home side managed just one shot on target while Leicester managed seven.

Thibaut Courtois has criticised Chelsea fans for booing after they were held to a goalless draw by Leicester on Saturday, their third stalemate in a week.

Sanchez omitted from Arsenal squad amid speculation of January transfer
In later press conferences on Friday, neither Guardiola nor Mourinho gave much away over a potential move for the Arsenal man. City remained favourites to sign the Chile worldwide this month until Manchester United expressed their interest last week.

With the point, Chelsea missed a chance to close the gap on the two Manchester clubs ahead of them, while the Foxes stay in eighth place.

After the match, the 48-year-old said his players were exhausted after Wednesday's 0-0 draw with Arsenal in the Carabao Cup. "I don't think we're playing a bad season".

"To play on Wednesday and then against a really good, physical team like Leicester, after only two days, is tough".

I saw a lot of players who were very exhausted.

Chelsea face Norwich in a FA Cup third round replay on Wednesday, and will be hopeful they can get back to winning ways as soon as possible.
