The Blues’ superstar Eden Hazard has stated that he will give everything to secure a top 4 spot in the Premier League.
Chelsea currently sits fifth in the Premier League and are will have no chance of finishing in the top 4 if Liverpool or Tottenham win the rest of their games. But the West London club can still do all that they can in order to build up the pressure on the other clubs ahead of them by winning their games and inching closer to a Champions League berth.
A win against the rampant Liverpool on Sunday gave Chelsea renewed hope to finish in the top 4 as they now trail their London rivals Tottenham Hotspur in fourth place by just two points. Liverpool is also just three points ahead of Chelsea in 3rd and has just one more game to play at home against Brighton. Jurgen Klopp’s Reds gave Chelsea a massive boost in the race for the fourth spot when they visited Stamford Bridge on Sunday.
Hazard Ready To Pounce-
After the 1-0 win against Liverpool on Sunday the Belgian talisman told Chelsea TV that the qualification is not in their hands but are ready if the clubs ahead of them provide any slip-ups, “It is not in our hands. It does not only depend on us but we will play, we will hopefully win, and then we will see the results of Tottenham and Liverpool and we will give everything.”
The 27-year-old winger also added that Chelsea has to now just concentrate on winning their remaining games and play well as a team, “Beating Liverpool was a massive result. Now the target is just to win and be in the top four at the end of the season, and if we play like this the last three games, we can have something special at the end of the season. Let’s hope for something big. We all work together and when we play this kind of game, it is a good feeling after the game.”
Winning the rest of their matches is the least that Chelsea can do after a disastrous campaign. There is a very slim chance for Chelsea to still make it in the top 4 but stranger things have happened in the past with football. All Chelsea can do is win their games and hope for slip-ups.
