Thibaut Courtois hits back at Chelsea fans: "It doesn't help"

The 48-year-old refused to comment on striker Michy Batshuayi's future, who has been linked with a move away, saying the Belgian along with Welsh teenager Ethan Ampadu were likely to play against Norwich.

After the match, the 48-year-old said his players were exhausted after Wednesday's 0-0 draw with Arsenal in the Carabao Cup. Fabregas will definitely be sidelined as the result of a similar issue sufferedin the same fixture, although supporters hoping to see teenager Callum Hudson-Odoi in action after his recent hat-trick for the development squad will be left disappointed.

While there have been no recent problems in terms of the defence - the clean sheets are still coming - it will surely be hard to continue with a three-at-the-back formation with Andreas Christensen, Antonio Rudiger and Cesar Azpilicueta until Cahill is back.

"Cesc had a little problem in his hamstring and is not available for tomorrow's game". He needs another step before having this chance to play with us.

Would Conte like to give Hazard a rest?

Conte added: "I am fully committed to Chelsea, to work with my players to try to improve the club in the football aspect".

Mourinho has experessed a desire for the feud to come to an end and, asked if he enjoyed such exchanges, he replied: "I don't".

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.

"But we knew we were playing against a good opponent, maybe the worst opponent we could have played in this moment". It is not important.

"In the first half Leicester ran more than us, they played better than us".
