Chelsea are now just one point off fourth place Liverpool after our 2-1 victory over Sheffield United on Sunday at Bramall Lane.

Asked about Chelsea’s chances of finishing in the top four after the victory over Sheffield United, Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel replied: “What would it help to talk about it? It is clear that we are responsible now for a situation where we are close to where we want to be. We want to try everything to reach the top four and we said this very clear when we started.

“So now the guys put themselves in the situation where we are the hunters for the teams in front of us and we are close.

“It changes nothing because the next game in the league will be a home game and like everybody else we will be under the pressure to continue our run and build on the momentum. We will not allow anybody to focus on the fixture.

“Today is the best example. What will it help you if you see that Sheffield are very, very low, but if you analyse the team you see their results against Man United.

“They are bottom of the league, but you have to come here, accept the challenge, play humble. This is what you do and from there on it is now the next challenge to improve, play FA Cup and the next game and keep on going. The future will take care of itself.”
