Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois had the unlikeliest of assists as all he had to do was throw the ball for Davide Zappacosta.

Courtois simply laid the ball for Zappacosta, who went on a marathon race and the next minute, he was celebrating a goal.

Zappacosta single-handedly took the ball to Qarabag’s half and scored a wonder goal as an intended cross became a goal.

Courtois wrote on Instagram: “Great way to open our Champions League campaign. Happy with my assist.”

Chelsea is more than just a football club to me; it's a passion I share, and my affinity with the Chelsea badge is one that will last forever. As far as watching my favourite team is concerned, I'd rather miss a meal than miss a Chelsea game.
