Courtois believes ‘smaller matches’ will decide the title race

Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois is impressing with his teammates, as he conceded only 9 goals in 11 Premier League games so far.

The Belgium international told the club’s official website: “We are taking it match by match,

“It’s quite hard to keep a run going in this league but after the couple of matches we lost we have won seven in a row which is very good.

“Now we are going to Man City to try and get another result, and then after it the next away games are at Sunderland and Crystal Palace, and it is games like those that decide if you are going to be champions or not”.

Then Courtois added: “You can win big matches even if you’re not having a good season, because it is a big match or a derby, but it is the smaller matches against difficult adversaries that you will see if you are going to be champions or not.”
