Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois says the club can still save their season by winning the FA Cup or Champions League.

The Blues currently lie 14th in the league after a disappointing start to the campaign, but the Belgian is hoping they can kick on from their first win under Guus Hiddink to make something of a currently atrocious season.

Chelsea start their FA Cup campaign against Scunthorpe on Sunday as they eye the silverware in May.

"Obviously if you win the FA Cup or the Champions League maybe it will still be a positive [season]," Courtois said.

"Success is a big word if you play until now not very well except the last three or four games.

"But still with the FA Cup or maybe the Champions League it could be a positive season if we end up in the top four or top six.

"We have to go step by step. Some teams are close together. If we beat West Brom and Everton we could be maybe eighth or ninth in a few weeks.

"Everything can change very fast, we just need the results."
