Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois spoke after his side’s home win over West Bromwich Albion in a tough game, which was decided by Diego Costa‘s goal in the second half.
The Belgium international goalkeeper told the club’s official website: “I remember the year we were champions with Atletico he was very strong, and the year we were champions with Chelsea he was very strong as well,”
“This season up to now he has scored very important goals. He’s really strong on the ball as well and he dribbles past defenders like it’s nothing, so he’s very strong at the moment and we can only enjoy that and use him as our strength”.
“It was a rough time for all the team last year but from January or February Diego was already scoring a lot of goals, and he has just carried that form on.”
Chelsea maintain the leadership following the last home victory at Stamford Bridge: “We are very happy with the points. We had to be patient with our work”.
“I spoke after the game with Nacer Chadli and he said: ‘what can we do against a Chelsea who plays so well offensively? Put a good organisation out there and defend well’. That’s what they did and it was really hard to find a gap”.
“The goal came from a little mistake by their defender and Diego scored fantastically. Then they put all their power up with Chadli, Robson-Kanu, Rondon who is so strong in the air, so it was a tough game for us but a very good three points”.
