Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois admits that he and his team are about to face a really difficult week. On Wednesday the Blues will face FC Porto in the group stage of the Champions League while the next Monday they will play against current Premier League leaders Leicester.

Courtois told Chelsea’s official website:

”Of course we are upset, but we have to regroup again and show strength against Porto in the Champions League and next Monday at Leicester,”

”It’s an important week for us. On Wednesday we have to win to make sure we are first and qualified. That will be a big boost for the team as well.”

”Then Leicester away is a difficult game. We knew last year it was not easy there and now they have the confidence and are playing really well. It will be a very tough game but we are confident we can push on there.”

Belgium international did not hide that he is dissapointed with Saturday’s defeat against Bournemouth:

”We had some chances, we didn’t finish them and at the end the game can change,’ he reflected. ‘It was difficult creating open chances, although we had them, and if we had scored one then maybe more would come.”

”At home you always want to win. We had the confidence after our last games. We were unlucky in our finishing.”

”I think this season we are a bit unlucky some games, but we have the same good team as last year and that team was champions so I think we have the quality to get out of this situation and we just have to fight every day, every game.”

Courtois who has just returned after suffering an injury admits that he has mixed feelings about his comeback:

”I just try to play my game, help the team like every player wants to do,”

”I think I started well with some good saves, but it’s a pity for the goal I couldn’t have a good touch on the ball.”

”If you’re being pushed by another guy it’s not easy to have a hard hit on the ball and it ended up at the wrong foot and it was a goal.”
