Cape Town - Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois believes the club can win all four of the competitions in which they are participating this season.

The Blues currently lead the Premier League by five points and will face Paris Saint-Germain in the knock-out stage of the Champions League, while they play Bradford City in the FA Cup fourth round on Saturday. They drew 1-1 with Liverpool in the first leg of the Capital One Cup semi-final at Anfield on Tuesday.

Courtois, who was called back to the club at the start of the season after three years on loan at Atletico Madrid, says he and the other new players in the squad are determined to win as many trophies as possible.

“Myself, Costa, Filipe, Fabregas and the rest of the team want to win trophies for Chelsea. That starts in the League Cup to the last game in the Champions League,” Courtois told The Guardian.

“We want to win everything, it will be difficult, but I think we have the team to do it. Hopefully we can achieve it.

“It’s difficult to say if we could win all four but in this moment we are playing well. We have passed through all competitions.

“Now we are in the semi-final of the Capital One Cup, are top of the league, there is an important game in the FA Cup on Saturday which we have to win and soon we will be playing PSG in the Champions League.

"It will be hard but we have the team that can win everything. It’s what we’re aiming for.”
