WATCH: Have you seen Courtois’ phenomenal last-minute save?

Chelsea maintained their unbeaten run last night, with a 1-0 win against Sunderland.

The home team provided tough opposition though, refusing to give up on the game despite being behind for the entire second half and under pressure for long periods.

In the end, it took this superb stoppage-time save by Thibaut Courtois to deny Patrick van Aanholt a last-gasp equaliser.

The difference between one point and three - right there.

His stop helped Chelsea extend their lead at the top of the table to six points.
