Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois expressed some frustration after the 0-0 draw at Watford.
The team hasn’t lost a game since Guus Hiddink took charge of it, but the points Chelsea gained in the last six weeks are still not enough to yearn for the fourth place, the last one available for the Champions League ( through playoff).
Chelsea are still 13th in the league with 29 points, 16 points behind Arsenal, currently fourth with 45:
“Being unbeaten is always important but obviously we would have preferred to win than draw,” Courtois said to Chelsea website.
“We could have won, it’s a pity we didn’t but now we have an important game against Manchester United. We want to win every game and move up the table, it’s another big one.”
He praised also his colleague Gomes, that made two super saves, keeping a clean sheet for Watford:
“We’re not happy, we had the biggest chances and Gomes made two big saves. We cannot be happy with a point but it was a solid performance.
“He’s a very good goalkeeper and he proved that, the last save from Diego was terrific and he saved them the points. That save was really good; it was a close-range header, I was in line with the ball and I thought it was going in but then I saw his arm going across.”
Courtois also analysed the game:
“It was a game where they were solid at the back and when we tried to play the ball into midfield they put pressure on us so it wasn’t easy to find the gaps,’ said the Blues goalkeeper.
“It was a close game, in the end I think we had the better chances. Gomes made two big saves and it could have been three points for us.”
