Thibaut Courtois has wanred his international team-mate, Romelu Lukaku, that he is not afraid of facing him in Saturday’s FA Cup final, because he knows all his “secrets”.
The Chelsea No1 is set to replace Cup keeper Willy Caballero against Manchester United at Wembley.
Striker Lukaku returns from injury, ready to add to his 27 goals for United this season.
“He is powerful, fast, has a good shot, is good with the head and I know his qualities and faults — to know where he is going to shoot. He is important for Manchester so hopefully we can keep him out of the match,” Courtois said.
Chelsea were 1-0 winners at Stamford Bridge against United in the Premier League last November. But they were beaten 2-1 by their former boss Jose Mourinho in February at Old Trafford.
