Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois has warned Chelsea of more frustration against Brighton and Stoke after a frustrating stalemate with Everton on Saturday.
“We want to finish the year well,” Courtois told Chelsea TV.
“It’s two difficult home games. Brighton is a team that are doing well in the Premier League. I think it will be the same – a defensive team trying to counter-attack us, and Stoke will be the same.
“We just have to try and recover well. Everything comes fast after the New Year so I think the manager will try to use all the players he has available.
“We have to be ready and show the manager we can play. If everyone does that we will be fine.”
