Thibaut Courtois sends positive message to Chelsea FC squad ahead of West Brom
The Chelsea FC goalkeeper underlines the unity in the Blues squad despite Monday night's 4-1 loss at Watford
Thibaut Courtois has urged the Chelsea FC squad to regroup ahead of next week’s trip to West Brom.
The defending Premier League champions lost 4-1 to Premier League strugglers Watford at Vicarage Road on Monday night to slump to successive top-flight defeats.
Troy Deeney broke the deadlock in the first half after Courtois brought down Gerard Deulofeu inside the Chelsea FC penalty area minutes after Tiemoue Bakayoko’s sending off.
The Belgium international Eden Hazard levelled in the 82nd minute before goals from Darryl Janmaat, Deulofeu and Roberto Pereyra in the final six minutes sealed a 4-1 home win.
The west London side have lost successive Premier League games following a 3-0 loss to Bournemouth at Stamford Bridge last week.
Chelsea FC are in fourth place in the Premier League table and a mere point ahead of Tottenham Hotspur.
Courtois was searching for the positives ahead of Chelsea FC’s home clash against West Brom at Stamford Bridge next Monday.
“Obviously we are disappointed with the two results we have had in the last week, obviously it is not good but we have to regroup in training, have heads high and continue the hard work and just continue what we were doing,” Conte told Chelsea’s website.
“We have now two bad losses but we are a team with the manager, and everyone is positive about that, and we will try to do our best to win next week.”
Chelsea FC won the Premier League title with two games to spare last season after finishing seven points ahead of Tottenham Hotspur.
The Blues will take on La Liga giants Barcelona in the Champions League round of 16 later this month.
