The news around Chelsea for the past month or two has been very bleak. How about some news to cheer you up? Thibaut Courtois took to Instagram today to give an update on his knee injury. While he didn't have much to say, a video is worth a thousand words.

This is very welcome news. Even though Asmir Begovic has performed admirably in his absence, having one of the best goalkeepers in the world in front of goal can give a team's back line a boost of confidence. And if there's one thing Chelsea could use right now it's some confidence.

The original diagnosis for Courtois' torn meniscus had the Belgian returning in December. It appears that he's right on track with his recovery. Hopefully all continues to progress well and he'll be back on time.
