Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois has insisted that he won’t make further mistakes after high profile errors against Hull City and Stoke, reports The Sun.
Charlie Adam lobbed the Belgian from in his own half just over a week ago. Before that the 22-year-old had unnecessarily given the ball away to allow Abel Hernandez to score. However, he played well as the Blues beat Queens Park Rangers 0-1 on Sunday, keeping them in the match before Cesc Fabregas’ late winner.
With big games against Manchester United and Arsenal coming up, the goalie can’t be making the same mistakes again if Jose Mourinho wants to stay on course for the Premier League title. Luckily for the Stamford Bridge outfit he believes that he has learnt from the episode and won’t be as suspect in the upcoming fixtures
Courtois said: “I never doubted that I can’t catch the ball. Against Hull, I just tried to make the best solution. It was not the best control, but in the second half I showed that I am mentally strong and I saved the team.
“Against Stoke, if you want to play high as a team, you as a goalkeeper have to play high as a team as well. Adam did a good strike and that can happen.”
He then went on to add: “I showed against QPR that if you play high, you can go get the ball from the midfield. If I’m on the 16-yard box, I can go get it there. For me, it’s not a problem. I continue. I never doubt myself. That’s my strength. I helped the team with two good saves and I’m happy.
“The most important thing is the team and against Hull and Stoke we still won. I’m 22 and still learning. These were moments which I could learn from.”
