Chelsea star back to full fitness despite huge injury scare against Arsenal

Chelsea’s Thibaut Courtois has been given the green light to team up with the Belgium squad following his head injury which saw him taken to the hospital during the clash with Arsenal, Skysports reports.

The goalkeeper was forced out of last weekend’s match after it seemed he was bleeding from his ear, prompting Jose Mourinho to substitute him for Petr Cech.

However, after various medical check-ups, Courtois is said to be back to full fitness and the bleed came from a cut rather than the feared head trauma.

A club statement read: “Chelsea can confirm Thibaut Courtois went to hospital during our Premier League game against Arsenal for precautionary tests on a head injury. Those tests came back all clear.

“Thibaut was treated for a minor cut to his ear and was released from hospital last night.”

Depending on how he performs as well as his condition during the Euro 2016 qualifiers, it is highly likely that Mourinho will continue to use him as the club’s number one.
