Chelsea and Belgium goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois believes the Blues are still capable of clinching a place in next seasons Champions League campaign, despite the club slipping out of the top four following defeat to Manchester United at the weekend.

The Blues sit two points off Tottenham who sit in the last remaining spot to qualify for the elite competition next year, but when speaking to the Official Chelsea Website, Courtois said he still has the belief that Chelsea can achieve it however hard is may be: "It stays the same, it is tough

"City are obviously far away but for the second, third and fourth spot there are five teams so it will be hard until the last match of the season.

"But I think we have enough quality as we saw on Sunday and we showed it against Barcelona. I think we are a very good team but there are some other good teams around us as well."

Chelsea make the trip to Manchester again this weekend as they face league leaders Manchester City, which will prove to be another tricky challenge, and if the Blues slip to another defeat in the Premier League, it will spell further difficulties in the Blues' quest for Champions League football next season.
