Chelsea fans unhappy with Antonio Conte after questionable substitutions in Leicester stalemate

Chelsea are really struggling in front of goal lately.

For the third game running, Chelsea failed to find the net and supporters are suddenly beginning to turn on manager Antonio Conte as it's the first time in the club's history that they've drawn three consecutive games 0-0.

The Blues played out a goalless stalemate with Leicester City on their return to Premier League action on Saturday and, despite the fact that they played the last 25 minutes against 10 men, Conte's side just couldn't break the deadlock.

Both sides had plenty of chances in the first half and it was thought that the hosts would turn up the pressure at Stamford Bridge after the break but, before the hour mark even arrived, both Eden Hazard and Cesc Fabregas were hauled off and replaced by Pedro and Willian respectively.

While Hazard wasn't having the best game of his career, fans were well aware of the fact that he remains the main source of creativity for Chelsea.

Hazard was also substituted by Conte in the Blues' midweek 0-0 draw with Arsenal, as well as the 2-2 draw played out between the sides at the turn of the year.

Whether it's fitness concerns or a tactical decision which leads to Conte's tendency to remove Hazard from the fray, supporters are unhappy that their best player isn't being allowed to help the side when they're chasing a goal.
