Arsenal fans unanimous on reason why they can't score against Chelsea

The Belgian keeper had a brilliant first half between the sticks for Chelsea at Arsenal


Thibaut Courtois proved he is easily one of the best keepers in the world in the first half of Arsenal's game with Chelsea.

The Blues shot-stopper pulled off two saves of the season in quick succession to keep Antonio Conte's team in the fixture on Wednesday.

Alexis Sanchez came extremely close to breaking the deadlock with a close-range shot that Courtois somehow got a hand to.

The ball bounced off one post before rolling across the goal line and colliding with the other, incredibly staying out.

But the Belgium international didn't rest on his laurels, and just moments later pulled off yet another brilliant save.

Picking the ball up in Arsenal's area, Alexandre Lacazette turned Gary Cahill with a quick drop of the shoulder, sending the Englishman to the ground.

He then fired a shot at goal, right into the very corner of the net, seemingly way beyond Courtois, who again somehow got a touch to tip the ball wide.

Arsenal fans watching the game couldn't believe what they were seeing, and many took to Twitter to bemoan their luck.
