Thibaut Courtois posts Instagram message after Chelsea's FA Cup exit

Thibaut Courtois has promised Chelsea supporters that the Blues will improve ahead of next Saturday’s London derby against West Ham United.

The defending Premier League champions lost their first domestic game under Guus Hiddink at Goodison Park in the FA Cup on Saturday evening.

Former Blues striker Romelu Lukaku scored twice in the final 12 minutes to secure a 2-0 win for Everton in the quarter-final clash.

Chelsea are winless in their last three games in all competitions after their Champions League exit at the hands of Paris Saint-Germain mid-week.

Belgium goalkeeper Courtois dedicated message to Chelsea’s supporters on Sunday afternoon following their FA Cup exit.

Courtois wrote: “Disappointed with the result yesterday! We will do everything to end as high as possible in the league! #CFC”

Chelsea are next in action against London rivals West Ham United at Stamford Bridge in the Premier League next Saturday.
