The Blues continued their stuttering form as they were held at Stamford Bridge by Leicester City.
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.
Chelsea were camped on the edge of the Leicester box for long periods late on, trying to prise apart the disciplined 10 men in front of them.
"I saw many players were very exhausted and they didn't recover from the Arsenal game".
Pushing their hosts with Vardy and Mahrez, the Foxes were a constant threat on Chelsea's back line and had the best of the chances in the first half.More news: Norwegians decline President Donald Trump's offer to move to US
"We didn't suffer defensively".
"We tried to create chances and score".
Having grown used to big-name managers coming and going in the era of owner Roman Abramovich, they hardly seemed heartbroken at the possibility of another change on the bench.
Conte responded by accusing Mourinho of being "fake" and "a little man".

When Jamie Vardy fired narrowly wide from a tight angle moments later, Conte wore a thunderous expression on the touchline.
Morata's frustrations got the better of him as he picked up a yellow card for a petulant foul on Harry Maguire towards the end of another lacklustre showing, while Marcos Alonso had a stoppage-time free-kick pushed around the post by Schmeichel as Leicester kept Chelsea at bay. Against Leicester, the 23-year old struggled to impose himself in midfield and a couple of mistimed passes won't help matters with the boo brigade.
Vardy was a constant menace and Conte's defence again failed to corral the England worldwide, who found space to shoot just wide.

In search of some inspiration and innovation, Conte switched to a 3-4-3 formation when he withdrew Fabregas and Hazard, sending wingers Pedro and Willian onto the field.
