Chelsea boss Conte confirms Courtois to start against Atletico Madrid

Chelsea boss Antonio Conte has confirmed Thibaut Courtois will start against Atletico Madrid.

The Belgian goalkeeper seemed unconformable after a collision with Gary Cahill and Peter Crouch during Chelsea's 4-0 win over Stoke City on Saturday.

"I spoke with our doctor about Thibaut, above all about whether I could make a different substitution and he said Thibaut was okay and you can make another substitution," Conte said after the win.

"Now he is okay and ready to play the next game against Atletico Madrid."
