Chelsea star Azpilicueta: We need to bounce back.

César Azpilicueta says Chelsea must bounce back to winning ways after Arsenal sealed a 2-1 victory over Antonio Conte’s side at the Emirates Stadium on Wednesday night.

Azpilicueta wants the Blues focus on their next match against Newcastle United in the FA Cup fourth-round on Sunday.

"We were one game from getting to Wembley and having the chance to fight for a trophy in a final so, yeah, it hurts and it is difficult," he said, according to the Independent.

"We started the game really well and were pressing very well and controlled the game. After the goal, they created the corner and the goal and 1-1 was really quick.

"But after they scored, I think we controlled the game again but we were not able to get the second goal. That was very important for us.

"Today we are disappointed and it hurts a lot. As I said before, we missed the chance to win a trophy. We need to analyse and improve and on Sunday we can do better. We have another chance in the FA Cup to keep going and try to get that trophy.

"After any defeat, the next game you need to bounce back and show the answer from the team. Even in this case, we go from one cup to another and we have to look forward and go for it and get a win, too, for confidence."
