‘Why Chelsea Will Not Underestimate Southampton On Saturday’- Goalkeeper Courtois Speaks
Chelsea goalkeeper, Thibaut Courtois has said that his club will not underestimate Southampton in Saturday’s English Premier League (EPL) clash.
Courtois believes that the game against the Saints will be tough and the Blues must continue winning every game in the EPL to either chase down City or at least finish second ahead of United.
“It’s a tough game, Southampton drew against Arsenal and it’s always difficult against them home or away,” Courtois told the club’s website. (www.chelseafc.com)
”We have to be careful because these are the games we have to win if we want to stay near the top and try to close the gap on Man City. Obviously we are far away but we want to keep on pushing and if we can’t catch them, we want to finish second.
“It was very good that we showed from the start we wanted to win against Huddersfield and that’s the mentality we need in every game.”
Chelsea are currently sitting in third position of the EPL , 14 points behind league leaders, Manchester City and 3 points behind second-placed, Manchester United after 17 games.
Southampton are 11th in the EPL table and have not won any match in their last four league games.
