Courtois expecting tough Iron test

Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois is expecting a tough test when Scunthorpe visit Stamford Bridge in the 3rd Round of the FA Cup on Sunday.

He told Chelsea’s Official website: ‘We play Scunthorpe, we have to be prepared and it will be a hard game, there are no easy games in England.

The Chelsea stopper believes that his sides fortunes have turned following the sacking of Jose Mourinho and says the club are targeting winning the FA Cup this season.

‘We can go far in the FA Cup and hopefully we can win it. With the FA Cup and Champions League it can still be a positive season, especially if we end up in the top four in the league.

‘We have to go step by step. We need to try to get the results.’
