Chelsea boss Rafa Benitez insists they'll finish the season strongly.

The interim Stamford Bridge chief ­insists he will prove his class when it counts by delivering the top-four finish owner Roman Abramovich is demanding.

The Spaniard said: "For us, the priority is to finish in the top four. That, finish, means at the end of the ­season, not now.

"You cannot look (at the table) every week in the season.

"You have to have confidence and prepare, and at the end of the season you will see."
