There has been a lot of celebrating amongst the Chelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern this weekend…
After a poor start to the campaign, an impressive win against Tottenham at Wembley has rejuvenated supporters, and according to Thibaut Courtois, it has rejuvenated the players too.
Speaking via the Evening Standard after the game, Courtois said: “This victory for us is good to show as a team we are working well and in the next weeks we can continue in this way”.
Elaborating, he said: “We will try to work hard and maybe after the international break we will know what our full squad is. We can build on that, play an amazing year and win trophies by the end of the season”.
Clearly, despite the relatively poor start, Courtois is confident. The victory against Tottenham has breathed new life into the squad and has proven that their hard work is not all for nothing.
Fortunately for the Blues, there is an international break coming up soon, and this will give Antonio Conte the chance to really decide what he wants from his team this season. As Courtois says, though, the players want to achieve success this year, and their performance on Sunday really put down a marker for that.
Thibaut Courtois is going to be very important for Chelsea this season, and he proved that against Tottenham. He was frequently tested by Harry Kane and co, but he handled the threat fantastically.
His performance was just one of many heroic showings by the men in blue, as Antonio Conte’s players stormed to victory.
If they keep performing like that, there is no doubting how far they can go.
