Thibaut Courtois reflects on Chelsea's 1-0 victory at Arsenal

Thibaut Courtois has hailed Chelsea’s 1-0 win at Arsenal as a “big” result for the Blues.

The west London side were handed a boost when Per Mertesacker received a red card for hauling down Diego Costa in the 18th minute at The Emirates.

The controversial Chelsea striker punished the Gunners minutes later after he guided a close-range finish past former team-mate Petr Cech.

Belgium international Courtois was understandably delighted with Chelsea’s second Premier League win under new manager Guus Hiddink.

Courtois wrote on his Instagram page: “Big win today! Great effort from everybody! Fantastic support from our fans! #CFC”

Chelsea haven’t lost to Arsenal in the Premier League since a 5-3 defeat at Stamford Bridge in 2011.

The defending Premier League champions are in 13th place and seven points above the relegation zone.

The Blues are still 14 points behind fourth-placed Tottenham Hotspur in the race to secure a place in next season’s Champions League.

Hiddink’s side make the trip to Watford in their next Premier League game on Wednesday 3 February.
