Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois has revealed his disappointment at the team’s goalless draw with Arsenal on Wednesday night in the Carabao Cup semi-final clash at Stamford Bridge.

The two London clubs will play the second leg at the Emirates on the 24th, and Courtois spoke about the game as he revealed his team missed too many chances.

“It was a good game for us but unfortunately we could not win,” he said. “We could not score a goal but the biggest chances David Ospina saved well and Arsenal only had one big chance which I saved, and I think we could have won but unfortunately we didn’t.

“The rest of things I had to do were some difficult through balls which you have to be ready for as sometimes they can bounce far ahead and you have to come out, and the high balls I collected, but the rest was more concentration for me and the defenders. We defend well and we were just unlucky not to score and win the game.

“Against Stoke we scored five goals but against other teams we have maybe missed too many chances,’ he added. ‘Like 2-2 at the Emirates and 0-0 last night and at the weekend against Norwich, maybe we have to score more goals from the chances we create because I think we create enough danger, but we need to finish it as well.”

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.
