N’Golo Kante insists his Chelsea side are just concentrated on the top 4 race when they welcome Manchester United to Stamford Bridge on Monday.
Chelsea occupy the 4th and final Champions Organization area with 41 factors. United are 9th, six factors adrift, and understand anything yet a triumph will make their chances of a top four surface exceptionally slim.
Manchester City’s Champions Organization restriction provides some hope that fifth location could be sufficient to get approved for the competitors, but that decision is subject to appeal, as well as United should run as if fourth area is the only course through the Premier Organization back right into the Champions League.
So while the Champions Organization qualification picture will control the accumulation as well as post-match analysis, there is another subplot simmering between the sides.
That is due to the fact that United have actually won both conferences between the sides this period – the 4-0 win on the opening day of the Premier League period, and also the 2-1 Carabao Cup success which included Marcus Rashford’s extraordinary free kick.
Chelsea midfielder Kante claims his colleagues are not concerned with their previous two beats at the hands of United, as well as are instead looking at strengthening their hold on fourth area.
“Man United were a little bit behind today they have shut the gap so it’s a huge chance either for us to keep them behind or for them to shut the void more,” Kante stated.
“It’s a vital game for both teams. Most of us recognize that Man United in your home is a really hard game, particularly after what took place in the initial game however we don’t consider this.
“We simply look ahead since we intend to maintain the void and also so that’s why we need to win, not to repay.”
Chelsea manager Frank Lampard has confirmed that Christian Pulisic and Ruben Loftus-Cheek will miss out on the game, while Tammy Abraham will certainly be examined tomorrow.
Other than those 3 gamers, however, Kante states the health and fitness and state of mind in the Chelsea camp declares.
“We have come back and also tried to obtain a great physical fitness, to be gotten ready for the next game since we need to ensure we obtain the 3 factors,” he continued.
“I think we have the group to get what we want this season– to complete in the top four, get Champions Organization football following season and also why not to win a title also. We have everything that we require in this team.”
