Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho said Friday that the earliest Courtois could return from his knee injury is the first week of December.

Asmir Begovic will continue to start for Courtois, while the Marco Amelia has also been training with the club and could compete for Jamal Blackman for the backup job while Courtois is sidelined.

Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho said Friday that Courtois will require surgery on his injured knee, and will be "out for quite a long time."

Courtois suffered the injury in training after returning from the international break. It's a big hit for Chelsea, though backup Asmir Begovic is a long-time starter in the Premier League and should be a solid replacement.

Courtois suffered a knee injury in training Wednesday and could miss Saturday's match against Crystal Palace, the London Evening Standard reports.

The report notes that it is not believed that he suffered a torn ACL or MCL, but he could be facing an extended absence. He'll undergo scans Thursday to help determine the severity of the issue, and if he has to miss any time, Asmir Begovic would move into the starting XI.

Courtois made four saves in Saturday's 2-1 defeat to Crystal Palace.

Courtois was not to blame for either goal and has now failed to keep a clean sheet in three starts this season. Much of that is down to a defence that looks unsettled at best and the Belgian may struggle to keep Everton out in the first game following the international break on Sept. 12.

Courtois stopped a penalty kick en route to two saves during Sunday's 3-2 win at West Brom.

Courtois and Chelsea's defense has leaked seven goals through their first three league matches, but the Belgian goalkeeper came up big with a penalty save 14 minutes into Sunday's match. After serving a one-match ban for a red card picked up in the Blues' opening match, Courtois figures to be Chelsea's regular starter moving forward and will try to shore up his defensive unit ahead of this weekend's London derby against Crystal Palace.

Courtois will start Sunday against West Brom after serving a one-match red-card ban.

Asmir Begovic will move back to the bench in favor of Courtois, who will face off against a West Brom side that has yet to score this season through two matches.

The FA has rejected an appeal of Courtois' one-game suspension for receiving a red card in Saturday's draw with Swansea, reports the Daily Mail.

Chelsea appealed the suspension to allow the keeper to take part in the side's next match against Manchester City. Courtois will miss the encounter after the FA upheld the referee's decision.

Courtois made three saves and allowed one goal versus Swansea City on Saturday, but he was sent off in the 52nd minute following a foul on Bafetemi Gomis as he broke into the box.

It was an eventful day in all for the Belgian, who injured himself during warmups and had to undergo a last-minute fitness test just to start the match. He played quite well before the sending off and even made a top-drawer save before Swansea tapped home their first goal on the rebound. Courtois will now miss next week's match at Manchester City, where Asmir Begovic is expected to deputize.
