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

"We didn't play well but that's when we need the fans behind us."

It was a torrid affair for the home side, with Eden Hazard being substituted for the fourth game in a row and Gary Cahill going off with a hamstring injury.

But Blues boss Antonio Conte had a different reason for his sides lack of determination against the Foxes.
