The Chelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern have been ripping into Belgian shot-stopper, Thibaut Courtois, valued at £45 million by our friends over at Transfermarkt, after his awful display at the Nou Camp on Wednesday evening. Courtois was at fault for two of Barcelona’s three goals and made a number of mistakes between the sticks for Conte’s side.
The Stamford Bridge faithful will be in full voice at the King Power Stadium on Sunday as Chelsea travel face Leicester in the quarter-finals of this season’s FA Cup. Antonio Conte will be hoping his side can bounce back from their crushing defeat in Barcelona as they look to book themselves a place in the last four of the FA Cup. Speaking ahead of the game (posted on the club’s Twitter account), Conte claimed that he has two good goalkeepers in the squad in Willy Caballero and Thibaut Courtois and that he will pick the starting eleven tomorrow.
The Blues propping our bar up have all come to the agreement that they want to see Caballero when they tune in to watch their side face Leicester on Sunday. After speculation surrounding Courtois’ future over the last few months, the big Belgian will be hoping he can regain some form as Chelsea make a push for the top four and the FA Cup in the closing weeks of the season.
You can see what the Chelsea fans make of their ‘keeper here:
Caballero > Courtois till the end of the season.

Courtois is good
Caballero is better

Caballero will play as it’s the cup but need Courtois to play so there is no lack of confidence

If Conte cares about Courtois he would drop him and help him regain his confidence. Let’s him half some competition and hopefully it raises his game

Wrong, we only have 1 good goal keeper, thats Caballero. Let Courtois go please. We still need to finish in top 4 and win FA Cup #CFC

Caballero is better than courtois. Courtois always make costly mistakes as we see on wednesday in the cl against barca.
