Chelsea skipper Cesar Azpilicueta says he and his team-mates have to move on quickly from a disappointing 1-0 FA Cup final defeat to Leicester City.

The Blues go toe-to-toe with the Foxes again on Tuesday evening in the Premier League and are 4/6 to gain revenge with a win at Stanford Bridge, while the draw is priced at 11/4.

We have to accept that we can be better, pick ourselves up and go again.

And Spain international defender Azpilicueta is hoping for a major reaction to both the Wembley reverse and a 1-0 loss at home to Arsenal last time out in the league.

He told his club's official website: "Of course we are very disappointed, but we don't have a lot of time. We have to recover and go again on Tuesday.

"We have lost the last two games, two important games. We have missed two opportunities and we cannot let more opportunities go. We cannot change the results, but we have to accept that we can be better, pick ourselves up and go again.

"It's hard to take, but in less than three days we are back and playing again, so we have to recover and go for it. Tuesday is a massive game for our Champions League qualification.

"We want to be in the top four and qualify for the Champions League and we have to show it on the pitch."

Chelsea currently sit in fourth in the Premier League table, but have little room for error, with fifth-placed Liverpool four points behind the Blues with a game in hand.

Leicester are two points and a place better off than the Blues, who also have a Champions League final against Manchester City to look forward to later in the month.
