Chelsea’s biggest game of the season so far ended in misery as they were knocked out of the Champions League by Barcelona on Wednesday evening.
Antonio Conte’s side were always going to be underdogs heading into the last-16 fixture given their opponents’ elite status.
However, a 1-1 draw in the first leg at Stamford Bridge gave the Blues a shred of hope, which was dashed fairly quickly when they kicked off in the Camp Nou.
It was a Lionel Messi masterclass as the five-time Ballon d’Or winner scored twice in a 3-0 triumph on home soil.
Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois was one of the players slammed by the fans on social media, but now focus switches to this weekend’s FA Cup quarter-final against Leicester City at the King Power Stadium.
The West London outfit’s only chance of lifting silverware at this stage of the season is winning the FA Cup, and the positive heading into the encounter is that the Foxes have never overcome the Blues in this competition.
Ahead of the fixture, Chelsea fans tweeted their thoughts.
For sure we are going to suffer

Bench Moses and Zappacosta and play Emerson as RWB. He'll undoubtedly do better than both of them combined.
