Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois insists the club must reach the final of the UEFA Champions League or the FA Cup to salvage their season.
The club have had a very poor season domestically, in 13th place in the Premier League they won last season and trailing current league leaders Leicester by 23 points.
Chelsea have also failed to defend the League Cup and are currently 17 points from fourth place.
They face Paris St-Germain on 16 February before their fifth-round FA Cup tie with Manchester City.
“We play against two great sides and we have to try to win those games,” Courtois told the Chelsea website on Tuesday.
“The only way to save our season is to reach the final in one or both of them.
“Obviously every time we don’t win in the league, and there is one game less, there is less chance to get into the top four.”
Chelsea have gone nine matches without defeat under interim manager Guus Hiddink and they have not given up on reaching a top-four spot.
“We will see where we are with five-six games in a row and see whether we can get there or not.”
