Sevilla decimated Real Madrid by putting 3 unreplied goals past them in their LaLiga match yesterday. The Los Blancos shotstopper, Thibaut Courtois, who recently joined them from Chelsea was culpable for some of the goals in the match as a result of his poor awareness and positioning.
More glaring in his error is the one that led to the second goal. He was supposed to palm the ball away to safety but ended up palming it to the path of an onrushing Sevilla’s player.
This has sparked outbursts from Chelsea’s fans who have taken to social media to compare the howler from their former goalkeeper to the wasteful Morata that was sold to them by Real Madrid.

See what they said:
If coming from behind to beat Liverpool at Anfield isn’t sweet enough for you…
Thibaut Courtois, the best goalkeeper of the year apparently, has conceded 3 against Sevilla in 55 minutes this evening with two absolute stinkers.
ALLEZ, ALLEZ, ALLEZ!
