Maurizio Sarri has spoken out on the top four race

Chelsea are currently 4th in the Premier League table with 67 points, just one point ahead of 5th placed Arsenal.

The Blues will be playing an away game against Manchester United in the match day 36 and will aim to take three points home, so that they won’t lose their Champions League spot.

However, Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri thinks that even if Chelsea misses the UCL spot, it won’t be considered as a failure.

“No,” said Sarri. “We have been in a cup final that we lost the final on penalties. We are in the semi-final of the Europa League. We are fighting for the top four. The season, at the moment, is good.

“Of course we have two targets: we want the top four in the Premier League and we want to go to the final of the Europa League. If we are able to get to the final, then we will want to win that [which would bring Champions League qualification if they miss out via the Premier League]. So the season is, at the moment, good.”
