Everton are in terrible form at the moment, which has led to the sack of Ronald Koeman as the manager of the club following their 5-2 home defeat to Arsenal.
However, despite their poor form, Courtois still thinks the Toffees are a good side that will be aiming to win the competition as well.
He said: “Everton have been struggling at the moment. I don’t think they are playing badly but they have conceded some sloppy goals, and other teams have had more luck, but the Premier League is hard. This is another competition, though, and they will be ready to win it.”
He also insisted that the team showed team spirit against Watford thereby showing their support for the manager.
Courtois said: “When a top team has a few bad results the first thing they [the media] try to say is that the players are not happy and we’re not behind the coach, but against Watford you saw we fought for every moment and we fought when we were down, so everybody can see we’re behind the coach.
“Those rumours are easy to spread but I don’t think they are true. If somebody is unhappy, instead of going to the press I think they would say it internally, so it’s not true.
“First of all, it’s the players that have to do it on the pitch so it was important to win, to fight. At the moment it’s more running, fighting and battling for every ball than maybe the best football.”
