​Chelsea keeper Courtois keeping Man City clash in perspective

Chelsea keeper Thibaut Courtois does not see Saturday's Premier League clash at Manchester City as deciding the title.

Pep Guardiola's City, who are one point behind Antonio Conte's leaders and level on points with second-placed Liverpool.

Courtois said on chelseafc.com: "Now we are going to Man City to try and get another result, and then after it the next away games are at Sunderland and Crystal Palace, and it is games like those that decide if you are going to be champions or not.

"You can win big matches even if you're not having a good season, because it is a big match or a derby, but it is the smaller matches against difficult adversaries that you will see if you are going to be champions or not."
