The Blues now sit fourth on the log with 66 points from 34 games but have played a game more than Manchester United and two more than Arsenal who are in action on Monday 15th April against Watford.

We want to play in the Champions League next season so the only solution is to be in the top four or win the Europa League.

But at the end the target is always the same, to win something and then play Champions League next season. We are Chelsea. Every year we need to start thinking at the beginning of the season that we can have trophies. In the last 10 years, we’ve won a lot of trophies, so we need to think we can keep doing it. It’s just about mentality if we want to win something we can do it.”
