Thibaut Courtois: I have studied the way Harry Kane scores


Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois echoed the sentiments of defender Branislav Ivanovic ahead of the Capital One Cup final against Tottenham Hotspur.

The Serbian told the club's official website on Wednesday that every player is eagerly awaiting Sunday's kick off.

And the Belgium international, in his first season at Chelsea, agrees with his team-mate that the Wembley game is one to look forward to.

"It's nice if every season you finish having won a trophy," Courtois is quoted as saying by The Telegraph.

"Hopefully that will continue for a while, starting with this match. This is the first final and everybody wants to win the first trophy that is up for grabs this season.

"Of course, I'm excited about the chance to play at Wembley.

"It's always nice to play in that sort of stadium and more if it's a final. Everybody is looking forward to Sunday's final."

If Jose Mourinho picks the 22-year-old for the game, he will have to face in-form striker Harry Kane.

But he says he already knows how to stop the Englishman from scoring.

"You try and analyse what teams and strikers are like more and more by watching videos," he said.

"But football is football and every game is different. Every time they come in front of you it can be different.

"I know it [Harry Kane's characteristics], but I don't have to say it now."
