Chelsea are currently third on the Premier League table, two points behind Manchester City and Manchester United, and the race for the Premier League title is very strong this season.
Up next for Chelsea is a home game against Manchester City on Saturday, and Courtois is looking forward to that game.
Chelsea defeated Stoke City 4-0 on Saturday and Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois believes the Blues must win Manchester City on Saturday to close the gap between the table toppers and the Blues.
“We have started this difficult week well with a good victory against Stoke and hopefully Wednesday and Saturday we will carry this good form on,” said the Belgian.
“The top teams are doing well this season and we are happy to be close to the top.
“If we want to close that gap we need to try and win next week.”
