Chelsea’s hope of winning a double this season was sent crashing after a very unlikely defeat against Leicester City in the FA Cup final over the weekend.

A stunning second half strike from Youri Tielemans put City in front, as VAR cancelled out a late Chelsea goal.

Chelsea defender Thiago Silva, who is also a leader in the Chelsea dressing room, has now issued a rallying call for his teammates to not get overwhelmed by the defeat as there’s still much to play for before the end of the season.

“Overcoming is necessary, moving forward is essential.” said Silva.

“Together, we will overcome the obstacles, improve whatever it takes and follow though with our goal as a team. ‘Let’s go Chelsea!!”

The veteran Brazilian is very correct. There’s a lot to play for before the end of the season; the top four battle will reach the final day of the season, and there’s also a massive Champions League final at hand. Surely, this isn’t the time for the team to collapse.
