COURTOIS HAILS CONTE FOR CHELSEA’S SENSATIONAL FORM

Thibaut Courtois has hailed his coach Antonio Conte’s role to transform Cheslea into genuine title contenders this season.

Chelsea were well off the pace last term and had to settle for 10th place in the Premier League table in May, but they appear to be well on their way to the title this season.

Conte’s side sit atop of the table with 59 points from 24 games, holding a nine-point lead over second-placed Tottenham, and Courtois feels much of their resurgence is down to the Italian’s arrival.

“It is good if you have a manager who is demanding a lot,” the goalkeeper told Sky Sports.

“You have to be at your top every week, and that is what makes you champions.

“If you have a manager who is not demanding then sometimes you relax and you lose games.”
