Chelsea can cut the gap with fourth-placed Tottenham to five points if we win at Burnley on Thursday following Tottenham’s 1-1 draw with Brighton on Tuesday.
When asked if top four is achievable for Chelsea after Tottenham’s draw with Brighton, Chelsea boss Antonio Conte said: “We have to try until the end to reach this target. If we want to be realistic with five games to go it is not simple to reduce the gap but we must have the will to fight.
“We must have the desire to try and take this target and why not?
“But tomorrow, for example, we have an important game against Burnley, a really strong team. They are having a fantastic season and it won’t be easy to get three points but we have to try in every game to do our best and try to avoid what happened against Southampton, especially in the first 60 minutes because we played badly, not only in tactical and technical aspect but also in spirit.
“We have to avoid this if we want to keep the hope to finish in the top four.”
