Quest for Champions League qualification has become tough: Courtois

London: Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois said that quest for Champions League qualification has become tough after his side lost to Manchester United 2-1 in the Premier League on Sunday.

"It stays the same, it is tough," says Courtois on the club's website. "City are obviously far away but for the second, third and fourth spot there are five teams so it will be hard until the last match of the season. But I think we have enough quality as we saw on Sunday and showed it against Barcelona."

Courtois considered the second half proved more matched in performance between the two sides.  

"United dropped back and kept three men up for the counter-attack, so they had seven plus the goalkeeper to defend so it is always dangerous. You have to prepare the counter-attack well, and we did that well in the first half. The second half they tried for possession, we tried as well but it was a bit harder. It was a more equal game," he added.
