Cech or Courtois? Jose Mourinho says he knows & will tell them on Sunday
What a choice Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho has in front of him…
Petr Cech or Thibaut Courtois? Two of the finest goalkeepers in world football are battling for a spot in the Chelsea first team this season.
So far in pre-season, Mourinho has kept his cards close to his chest. Courtois played 90 minutes against Real Sociedad on Tuesday night, but The Special One had his excuses ready.
The Chelsea boss explained that Courtois had been carrying an injury so missed some of the weekend matches, so the Belgian needed the Sociedad win to get in shape.
All eyes will be on Turf Moor on Monday as Mourinho’s choice will become known for the world to see, with the individual players informed on Sunday.
Our guess: Thibaut Courtois gets the nod.
