Chelsea leader Thiago Silva issued a rallying cry to his team-mates to focus on the remainder of the season after the club’s defeat to Leicester City in the FA Cup final.

The Blues were beaten by the Foxes at Wembley after Youri Tielemans’ stunning long-range strike gave Leicester a 1-0 win to lift the trophy for the first time.

Chelsea have been in sensational form since Thomas Tuchel’s appointment, with the German reinstating the Blues into the top four and guiding them to the Champions League final.

Either Leicester or Chelsea will miss out on the Champions League if Liverpool win their three remaining matches, while the Blues have Manchester City to come in the final in Porto.

With so much left to play for in the season, Silva has urged his team-mates to ‘move on’ from the final defeat to Leicester and shift the focus on the remainder of the campaign.

‘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!!’

Chelsea take on Leicester in a rematch of the final at Stamford Bridge on Tuesday.

The Blues’ shock defeat to Arsenal last week opened the door to Liverpool bagging the final Champions League spot.

Leicester are currently in third but Liverpool have a game in hand on both teams and can capitalise on dropped points between the pair after the game at Stamford Bridge if they win their remaining matches.
