Chelsea haven’t even kicked off their Premier League campaign and yet Jose Mourinho is already sending shockwaves around social media and making headlines.
The Portuguese gaffer has made the huge decision to drop Petr Cech – arguably one of the best goalkeepers the Premier League has ever seen – in favour for the up and coming star Thibaut Courtois.
Courtois has impressed the footballing world during his three seasons on loan with Atletico Madrid in Spain – keeping cleansheets in 50% of the games during that time.
Whatever choice Jose made for his No.1, it was always going to provoke a massive reaction in Twittersphere.

Courtois ahead of Cech then. Cold, but yet, understandable. Wouldn't stand seeing Cech being benched, has to leave for his own good.

Makes me so sad to see Cech dropped, he has done nothing wrong at all but it is the right thing to do. We can't afford to lose Courtois!
