Chelsea now sit one point above the relegation zone after suffering their ninth defeat of the season away to Leicester on Monday night. 

The performance lead Jose Mourinho to harshly criticise his players, saying that they had "betrayed" him and his work with the two goals they conceded

It seems that he wasn't the only one unhappy with the performance, as Diego Costa turned to his defenders and clearly gestured to them that they had been asleep for portions of the game, something that his manager somewhat reinforced with his comments after the game too. 

Meanwhile, Robbie Savage has also chimed in with more criticism for John Terry, continuing their war of words in the media in recent weeks.

He stated on the BBC after the match that "I'm going to criticise John Terry, because he's the captain of that side, and I'll tell you what, they looked a better team when he went off. If he wants to question me again I don't really care, because tonight, he was awful, once again".
