Chelsea forward Timo Werner has said it’s really important to be back in the top four.
Chelsea moved ahead of Liverpool into fourth place with last night’s victory over Newcastle United.
Goalscorer Werner said, “Really important, that’s important for us to reach Champions League at the end. At the start of the season we were favourites of the title, the last two months have showed we are no and we have a lot of work to do to close the gap with City and other clubs.
“The football we’ve played and the games we have played which have not been easy but we’ve showed that with some development we can get better.”
He also said: “A few weeks ago we were somewhere and nowhere and we were a lot of points behind fourth place, we want to keep going. Only four points to second place and lots have said we won’t reach top four at the end of the season but here we are. We have a good shape, we’re back on track.”
