Chelsea defender doesn't want to rule out top-four yet

Chelsea have been struggling for consistency this season.

The Blues are currently languishing 9th in the Premier League standings and have splashed out in excess of £300m on eight new signings this January.

They have won only two of their last 12 Premier League games and are ten points behind the top four.

Their hopes of qualifying for the Champions League are slowly fading away as they have scored only seven goals in their last 12 Premier League games.

Club captain Cesar Azpilicueta doesn’t want to give up on top four yet.

I won’t rule out this season,” Azpilicueta said. “At the moment we are not where we want to be. We are out of two cups, but we still have the two biggest ones — the Premier League and the Champions League.

“No one expected us to win the Champions League in 2021. In the Premier League, we have to have a very strong second half of the season to reach the top four, but it’s in our hands. I refuse to give up on that.

“We have players coming back from injury. We have new signings. The ambition from the new ownership is very clear. We are not where we want to be, but we will work to get it back.

“We have to make it a success.”
