Thibaut Courtois who is just 22 had to leave the field of play after colliding with Alexis Sanchez, the Arsenal striker. Courtois was replaced with veteran keeper Petr Cech.
Courtois was removed from the pitch in line with new regulations which were brought in by the Premier League to deal with players who suffered a head injury during a game. The new regulations were introduced as a result of an incident in the 2013/2014 season which saw Hugo Lloris, the Tottenham goalkeeper, knocked unconscious during a game against Everton.
Chelsea FC said:
“Chelsea Football Club can confirm Thibaut Courtois went to hospital during our Premier League game against Arsenal yesterday 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. He is expected to report for international duty later this week.”
