The Blues suffered their first defeat under Antonio Conte at Stamford Bridge on Friday night and Courtois wants to see a response.

Chelsea travel to Leicester in the third round of the EFL Cup on Tuesday night and then make the short trip to Arsenal in the Premier League next Saturday.

Courtois expects a stern test from both the league champions and the Gunners but he is confident his side can record back-to-back wins.

“We know how Leicester plays, it’s very hard there as well,” he told reporters.

“Those cups are important and we want to win a trophy this season. It will be a hard game and we should react after two disappointing games at Swansea and losing at home to Liverpool. The next game away at Arsenal we should try to win like last season.

“We didn’t start well (against Liverpool). First half we didn’t have the duels, we didn’t have the second ball, everything was for them. They pressured us and we couldn’t cope with it. It was very hard and we gave two goals away.

“The second half was a bit better, we scored and had some pressure but I don’t think we had a big chance.”
