Chelsea’s season has been full of ups and downs, and while the Blues have the FA Cup final to look forward to, there’s also the fear of missing out on a Champions League spot.

Thibaut Courtois has looked back on how the season has gone, and pointed at some negatives and positives.

“I think there have been ups and downs,” he told the official Chelsea website. “We played some very good football and had some very good victories. But there were moments of maybe two or three weeks when we didn’t perform and we lost some points.

“When you start the season, there are six teams going for the title. This season, the top spot was out of reach, but the other positions were quite close. Then it is down to who is the most consistent and I think in some periods we were less consistent than the other teams.

“At one stage we were second and we could have stayed there, but we had a bad spell and dropped to fifth. We can’t be happy with that, and also the League Cup we got to the semi-final and unfortunately lost to Arsenal. Overall, it’s not a bad season, but we could have done better overall and I hope we can win the FA Cup.”

On a personal note, the Belgian revealed that he wants to win trophies with Chelsea.

“My ambition is to win as much as I can with Chelsea,” he added. “On a personal note, I think this season has been quite good for me, but sometimes you could wish for it to be a little bit better. I think the second game against Barcelona, for me, even though I made a couple of good saves, the first from Messi I could have saved and the third went through my legs.

“It was a big game so it was on social media everywhere, but I’m fine with that. I feel I am on top form and playing well, and I hope to continue that form, because of the World Cup coming up, but first I hope to win the FA Cup.”

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.
