Ex Liverpool player and now Sky Sports pundit Jamie Carragher admits that Thibaut Courtois missing the clash at Etihad with Manchester City could be a very important absence:
“It will be, as him and David De Gea are the two best goalkeepers in the league. With De Gea not playing at the moment, it looks like he may move on. But in Courtois, Chelsea have the outstanding ‘keeper in the league and so he will be a big miss.
“So he has been there and done it last season and he will be hoping for the same result”.
