Chelsea fans criticise Courtois for conceding against Crystal Palace

A handful of Chelsea supporters aired their frustrations at goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois following Saturday’s defeat to Crystal Palace.

Antonio Conte’s men suffered a shock 2-1 loss at Stamford Bridge, which ended their eight-game unbeaten run in the Premier League.

It was only their fourth league defeat of the entire season, and even though they are still on course to lift the title, the gap at the top has been reduced to seven points.

In the game, Chelsea took the lead through Cesc Fabregas in the fifth minute, but four minutes later, Wilfried Zaha found an equaliser.

Before the 15-minute mark, the Blues were trailing after Christian Benteke struck to put Palace ahead on away soil.

The league leaders had 79 minutes to turn the game back around in their favour, but were unable to do so.

After Courtois, who has helped the Blues keep the second-best defence in the division this season, gave his thoughts to the¬†club’s official website¬†ahead of Wednesday’s Manchester City clash, some fans blamed him for conceding twice against Palace.
