Thibaut Courtois has issued a rallying cry to his Chelsea team-mates ahead of their FA Cup clash against Manchester City on Sunday.

The Blues suffered a setback in their bid to qualify for the Champions League quarter-finals on Tuesday night after a 2-1 first-leg defeat by Paris Saint-Germain at Parc des Princes.

Courtois was criticised for his failure to stop Edinson Cavani’s winner after John Obi Mikel had cancelled out Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s opener.

However, the Belgium international was remaining upbeat despite their setback in Paris as Guus Hiddink’s side look to book their place in the last eight of the FA Cup.

Courtois has been ever-present in Hiddink’s side since the Dutchman replaced Jose Mourinho at Stamford Bridge in December.
