(Photo) Chelsea keeper Courtois gets lucky against Liverpool as spin stops Sturridge punishing poor handling error

Chelsea very nearly made a nightmare start against Liverpool on Friday evening but luck was on their side.

Less than two minutes were on the clock when Daniel Sturridge fired in a hopeful shot against his former club. Blues goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois made a right mess off it and was almost punished.

However, the spin on the ball slowed down it’s journey towards the back of the net, allowing a grateful Courtois time to gather at the second attempt.
