The Chelsea goalkeeper was thrilled to be able to help the Blues ease to a 1-0 win against Sunderland on Wednesday night

Thibaut Courtois has taken to Instagram to reflect on his match-winning save in Chelsea’s 1-0 win against Sunderland on Wednesday night.

The Belgium international managed to keep an eighth clean sheet in 10 games after Cesc Fabregas scored a first-half winner at the Stadium of Light.

Courtois managed to pull off a stunning save in the second half to deny Sunderland defender Patrick van Aanholt in the closing moments of the clash.

Chelsea have the second-best defensive record in the Premier League this term after conceding just 11 times in 16 games so far this term.

The Chelsea shot stopper posted the above photo on his Instagram page and wrote the following caption on the photo-sharing app:

“Happy I could help the team get those important 3 points!! 💪🏻✋🏻🔵⚪️ #CFC”

Chelsea are sitting at the top of the Premier League table and six points clear of second-placed Liverpool and third-placed Arsenal in the title race so far.
