Pic: Chelsea goalie Thibaut Courtois’ left eye looked rather grim on the Belgium bench last night

Chelsea supporters hoping to witness their star in action with Belgium playing Netherlands in a high profile friendly match, were left rather disappointed, with goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois left on the bench.

It was a surprising decision from Roberto Martinez, as the keeper comes of a brilliant run of five straight clean sheets in the Premier League for the Blues.

However, a picture of the young keeper snapped during the match has shed more details on why the gaffer dropped him. Courtois was spotted on the Belgium bench with his left eye seemingly injured.

Chelsea fans will be hoping that the injury is not as grave as it looks, as Chelsea travel to Middlesbrough after the international break looking to sustain their excellent run of form.
