PHOTO: Courtois prepares for London return

Chelsea Stadium Stamford Bridge

On loan Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois seems to be in a good mood ahead of his Chelsea reunion.

On loan Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois has posted a picture of himself on Instagram ahead of his return to West London.

The Belgian has been on loan at Atletico Madrid for the past three seasons and will enjoy a rare chance to perform in front of the fans who could be signing his name for years tomorrow night at Stamford Bridge.

Courtois looked calm and composed in the first leg between the sides as he put in a solid and aggressive display, which hinted that he’s well suited to the pace and nature of Premier League football.

It will be interesting to see how he deals with the pressure of playing in front of Chelsea supporters, having made it clear that he doesn’t want to wear a Chelsea shirt unless he’s the undoubted number one at the club.

Courtois three-year loan spell with Atletico has seen him turn himself into one of the most talented goalkeepers in Europe and someone who is sure to be Belgium’s number one heading into the World Cup this summer.
