Mourinho: Courtois injury nothing to be worried about

Shaun Botterill

The scariest part -- and only real negative -- of Chelsea's 2-0 win against Arsenal was the health of Thibaut Courtois, who was run over by Alexis Sánchez in the early going and was forced off a few minutes later with an apparent concussion. Then, with Petr Cech on in his place, the Belgian was sent to hospital, leaving us mostly in the dark as to what was going on.

Fortunately, Jose Mourinho's here with the update we needed:

The collision looked terrifying: Courtois looked to have been out cold after being caught by Sánchez's knee, and there were hints that he was bleeding from his ear just before his substitution. But that the tests at the hospital came up with 'not to worry' is great news, and the international break should give him time to recover if he needs it.

Maybe Petr can lend him his cap now.
