Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois has had an amazing season so far, and has saved Chelsea a number of points as the Blues are ten points clear in the title race.

In some games this season, the Belgian has had little or nothing to do due to how solid Chelsea have been. If you’d recall, in the game against Middlesbrough earlier in the season he had to come at half-time to warm up, as he clearly had nothing to do.

Speaking of that incident, he said: “Like against Everton I had nothing to do but you have to keep your mind focused until the referee blows his whistle. At half-time I did some extra warming up with Gianluca Spinelli because it was a cold day and I wanted to get the feeling of the ball. Obviously that helps if you have to make a save.”

In preparation for the FA Cup quarterfinal clash against Manchester United, Courtois was involved in the action, not as a goalkeeper but an outfield player.

In so many training sessions this season, he has shown that he’s just as good; scoring an excellent free-kick in one and doing a backward elastico skill on Diego Costa in another one.
