Thibaut Courtois is a man in form, and this is down to the way his team has protected him from opposition attacks. Although to his credit, the Belgian has been reliable the few times he had been called into action. A good example is the save he pulled from a Negredo shot that could have leveled the scoreline with just 12 minutes left to play. Also, the Blues goalie held his own and handled all the aerial balls from Middlesbrough as the game neared its end.
The Chelsea number 1 now has the most clean sheets than any goalkeeper in Europe’s top 5 leagues.
Courtois has kept 7 clean sheets this season, and no goalkeeper has achieved that feat this season. 7 clean sheets in 12 league games is indeed a wonderful feat.
