Courtois (groin) made two saves during Chelsea's 2-0 win over Stoke City on Monday, his sixth clean sheet of the season.

Courtois had not played since Dec. 6 against Newcastle, but the Potters didn't do much to test him in his first game back. With the injury break, it's possible that he could play every game throughout the condensed holiday schedule, though if he does not, Petr Cech would be back to protect the woodwork.

Courtois needed to make only two saves during Chelsea's 3-0 win over Tottenham, his four consecutive clean sheet in all competitions.

Courtois hasn't allowed a league goal since Nov. 8 against Liverpool, while also adding in a shutout of Schalke in the Champions League. The Chelsea defense is playing very well right now and looks primed to continue the streak Saturday against Newcastle, though defensive midfielder Nemanja Matic, who has arguably been Chelsea's best player this season, will miss out with a yellow-card accumulation ban.
