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

United's No 7 has adorned some legendary players over the years such as Eric Cantona

The January transfer window may be a quiet one as Antonio Conte's future is still up in the air, with Paris Saint-Germain and the Italy national team as possible destinations for the 47-year-old in the summer.

But before he makes any moves, Conte wants to wait and see who the new next FIGC president is, with current incumbent Carlo Tavecchio stepping down after the World Cup debacle.

Antonio Conte believes Chelsea's gruelling schedule and a lack of squad depth are to blame for the champions' recent struggles.

The Brazil global started on the bench in the 0-0 draw against Leicester City on Saturday and wasn't called upon following an injury to Gary Cahill in the 33rd minute.

Chelsea would be looking to secure their first victory of 2018, having played a 0-0 stalemate with Arsenal recently. A lot of time defenders have had chances to score but didn't take them. I saw a lot of players very exhausted. Leicester had a very bright first half and could have come away with all three points, if not for the red card shown to Ben Chilwell.

"This topic is not only for one player but for many players". Here are three of the lessons we can only hope they are addressing over the coming sleepless nights. Unfortunately, there isn't too much magic in Chelsea's game these days, and on Wednesday, the only way magic could actually occur is if Chelsea suffer the ignominy of a home defeat by lower league opposition in the third round.

There will also be a place on the bench for new signing Ross Barkley, while Kenedy, Pedro and Michy Batshuayi could all start.

Leicester, despite finding themselves 10 men down with just 68 minutes played, held on for a point at Stamford Bridge, but in general it was a game in which the Foxes were dominant. Marc Albrighton, Shinji Okazaki and Riyad Mahrez are the players who are likely to provide the supporting act.
