Chelsea is set to stretch their current run of wins to five games when they take on Arsenal on Sunday according to to the opinion of the Blues number one.
Thibaut Courtois has been impressed by his side’s upturn in form since they lost to Burnley on the opening day of the Premier League season. The Blues were shocked by the Clarets who were 3-0 up at one point in that game, but they battled hard only to lose the game 2-3. They have put together a run of four straight victories since that time and Courtois believes that this gives them the upper hand when they face the Gunners this weekend.
The Blues thrashed Azerbaijani side Qarabag 6-0 in the Champions League on Tuesday and they will have two days more than their Sunday opponents to rest as the Gunners play in the Europa League on this evening.
According to the Belgian, this is a good time to play the Gunners as they look to close the gap on Manchester United at the top of the league table.
With Gary Cahill returning from his suspension and no major injury problems, Antonio Conte will have a full house to pick from against their London rivals.
