Chelsea are fighting for four trophies this season, but goalkeeper Courtois has told HLN that he is prioritising two specific pieces of silverware.
They are expected to hold onto their lead in the league, and one would suspect that the League Cup will be theirs. Whilst there are still long ways to progress in both FA Cup and Champions League, the West Londoners are real contenders for both competitions.
A key man to these potential successes, and likely any success for the next decade, is Thibaut Courtois, who has been impressively marshalling the goalposts for the Blues. Having finally returned to Stamford Bridge after his three-year loan spell with Atletico Madrid, the Belgian stopper is looking to add to his already impressive trophy haul.
His spell in Spain saw him collect the La Liga trophy, the Copa del Rey, the Europa League and the UEFA Super Cup, while coming within seconds of winning the Champions League last term. Having missed out on the premier European Cup competition by such a fine margin, the 22-year-old is prioritising success in that competition, as well as the Premier League, with the Blues this season.
Speaking to Belgian media outlet HLN, Courtois said: “The priorities for myself this season are the Champions League and the Premier League.
“But [Jose] Mourinho wants all four.”
It would be considered a successful season should Chelsea win both the Champions League and Premier League, but, with the way they are progressing at the moment, maybe Courtois will be able to add the two trophies that he is not prioritising to his collection as well.
