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.

Courtois made three saves during Chelsea's scoreless draw with Sunderland on Saturday, his third consecutive clean sheet in all competitions.

The competition hasn't been terribly strong in Premier League play, as he's blanked West Brom and Sunderland in back-to-back league matches, but the Chelsea defense has greatly improved of late, and they could keep it going Wednesday against Spurs.

Courtois needed to make just one save to record his third clean sheet of the season during Chelsea's 2-0 win over West Brom on Saturday.

While the defensive effort was solid Saturday, Chelsea have been fairly leaky this season, which has kept Courtois from posting more clean sheets. That being said, he's allowed just one goal in six other matches this season, giving him a boost in fantasy formats that credit points for the lone scores.

Courtois made three saves but gave up a goal in the 90th minute of Chelsea's 2-1 win over Crystal Palace on Saturday.

Courtois has only recorded two clean sheets this season, though he was headed for a third before suffering a concussion against Arsenal on Oct. 5. He remains the top Chelsea keeper, though he'll have a tough job facing Manchester United at Old Trafford on Oct. 26 after a much easier Champions League tie against Maribor on Tuesday.

Courtois has been deemed fit for international duty after suffering a concussion last Sunday against Arsenal, ESPN FC reports.

Courtois had to be removed against Arsenal before the half-hour mark after colliding with Alexis Sanchez. He was replaced by Petr Cech, but if he can play over the international break, he should be able to start for Chelsea on Oct. 18 against Crystal Palace.
