Thibaut Courtois says Chelsea are in buoyant mood ahead of Sunday’s Premier League clash with Arsenal.

A month on from the Premier League opening loss to Burnley and talk of a crisis, Chelsea equalled their record Champions League group-stage win with Tuesday night’s 6-0 defeat of Azerbaijan’s Qarabag.

The Blues have two additional days’ rest due to Arsenal’s involvement in the Europa League against Cologne tonight.

And Courtois says Chelsea, after four straight wins, are in a good frame of mind ahead of the third of seven September fixtures.

“It is good to face Arsenal now,” Courtois said.

“Everybody is healthy and things are going well. We won at Leicester, won comfortably (on Tuesday night) and will go into the Arsenal game with a good feeling.

“We are doing well. After the bad first half against Burnley, I think all our performances have been good.

“We have shown good spirit, good football and good wins most importantly of all,” he added.
