Bad Season Just Got Worse – Courtois Set To Miss 2-4 Months With Knee Injury!

We have been dire as a team so far this season. We have struggled to get going up front while, the defense has been all over the place. 

Although, if there was one thing that was going our way, it was our injury situation. The Blues were fortunate enough to have Costa back and not lose any of their Star players with injury (except Oscar; but that wasn’t a major one).

Well, as it turns out, the bad season just got worst! Thibaut Courtois, our no.1 shot stopper and probably one of the best in the world, has suffered a major knee injury that is set to keep him out for at least 10 weeks. Minimum.

There’s still no official word on the injury situation and here’s what the tabloids have been reporting so far:

“Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois is expected to be sidelined for two months after suffering a serious knee injury, according to reports.

“The 23-year-old played for his country during the international break and returned at full fitness, only to hurt his knee during the first session back on Wednesday.

“It has been reported that the injury is not believed to be to his cruciate ligaments, but Courtois is still facing time out.”

Some reports are also pointing out that the injury could be serious enough to keep him out for 4 months! I guess, the Mourinho’s press conference today will make the picture a bit more clear.

So, where does this leave us? Frankly, in my life, I have never been this much happier with a backup signing! Asmir Begovic is a very, very good goalkeeper, if not the best in the business. I trust him to do the job for us as long as the Belgian is unavailable.

What does concerns me though is; hopefully, Begovic doesn’t get himself into any trouble for the next couple of months at least. You wouldn’t trust Jamal Blackman to start Premier League game for us now, would you?
