N’Golo Kante does not believe that Chelsea are the favourites to win the Europa League this season.
With Napoli out of the picture, Arsenal, Valencia, Eintracht Frankfurt and the Blues are left to win the ultimate trophy.
After Chelsea’s 5-3 aggregate win over Slavia Prague, Kante said, “We’re not favourites; we played a good match and we will do all we can to get to the final. But we’re not favourites. It was important for us to win this game.
“I think it’s important to be in the semi-finals, it was our target. We played a good game, it was difficult in the second half but we got what we wanted and we are happy for that.
“I think they worked very well, they tried to push more and scored two beautiful goals. And after that we managed to hold on to keep the win.”
“We can make the season beautiful by winning the Europa League,” the midfielder added. “That’s the only title we can win now, so it would be great to win the Europa League.
“I think at the beginning of the game it was a good feeling to score three goals like this. The most important thing was to qualify. We’ll go into the semi-final with confidence and we hope to qualify for the final.”
