Chelsea were dumped out of the FA Cup after the Blues lost to Barcelona 3-0 at the Camp Nou on Wednesday.

With Chelsea’s only hope to winning a title rests on the FA Cup, Blues vice-skipper Cesar Azpilicueta has urged his teammates to bounce back with a victory against Leicester City.

“After a defeat, and going out of the Champions League, we have a chance to bounce back and get through to the semi-finals of the FA Cup,” said the Spanish defender.

“It’s a massive trophy to get and it’s the only chance we have this year so for all the fans and the club it will be a great opportunity to get back to Wembley. It’s the one. It’s the only chance we have so we have to go for it and I’m sure the team will fight very hard to get into the semi-finals.

“We have two months ahead of us to finish in a strong way, to fight for the FA Cup and to get into the top four, so we have targets to fight for and I’m sure we will do it.”

Chelsea is more than just a football club to me; it's a passion I share, and my affinity with the Chelsea badge is one that will last forever. As far as watching my favourite team is concerned, I'd rather miss a meal than miss a Chelsea game.
