Chelsea laboured to a 1-1 draw against Leicester on Sunday as Frank Lampard’s start as the new Blues boss failed to get much better.
The London side started their season with a 4-0 hammering at the hands of Manchester United before losing on penalties in the UEFA Super Cup.
Mason Mount opened the scoring against the Foxes at the weekend, a moment which looked to have sparked a sense of relief. However, that was was quashed when Wilfred Ndidi popped up with an equaliser in the second half.
Kurt Zouma conceded a penalty last weekend, looking out of his depth in general, but Chelsea fans appeared delighted with his first-half showing as he bounced back against Brendan Rodgers’ men.
One fan described the Frenchman as powerful whilst he was also labelled a tank. It was meanwhile suggested that the 6 foot 3 defender shouldn’t have been written off either.
A further individual appeared happy that he didn’t look as weak as he did against United a week ago.
Zouma has started all three games for the Blues this term after returning from a loan spell with Everton.
Here’s the best of the reaction on his performance from during the game.
Night and Day performance

No doubt it was a disasterclass performance against United, but people are too reactionary. It was just a shame our first game had to be United away.
Frank knew he needed time and confidence in him to settle in. Christensen was also like that when he first came back from loan.
