Chelsea player winds up top performer of the evening

On-loan Chelsea goalkeeper Thibault Courtois provided another demonstration of just what the fuss is all about with a ridiculous performance to single-handedly keep Atletico in the game against AC Milan.

The young Belgian pulled out an absolute wonder stop to deny Kaka’s header minutes after getting a tiny piece of fingertip to divert the Brazilian’s rocket strike onto the bar.

From there, Atletico went on to snatch an unlikely 1-0 win at the San Siro.

Could the 2014/15 season be the time for Courtois to shine at Stamford Bridge?
