Chelsea keeper Courtois: Roma thrashing turned our season around

Thibaut Courtois says Chelsea being thrashed by Roma has helped turn their season around.

The Blues were beaten 3-0 at the Stadio Olimpico at the start of the month.

Since then, they've beaten Manchester United and West Bromwich Albion, and Courtois believes the loss to Roma has changed his teammates mentality.

"I think the biggest change was maybe like last season against Arsenal when we lost 3-0 as well," said the Blues keeper before Chelsea's Champions League meeting with Qarabag.

"Maybe we were never fighting inside the game, or our mentality was not on point. We learned again in Rome we have to do it every game and maybe this year not 100 per cent, but 110 or 120 per cent to win those games.

"Against Manchester United we showed if we have the mentality on point, and we play well, we win, and we win with good football. Against West Brom we had the same focus and will to do those extra metres.

"We have to continue doing that. I hope Rome was a learning point for everyone, and we continue having this focus throughout the season."
