Chelsea boss Rafa Benitez admits he fancies putting pressure on second-placed Manchester City.

Chelsea are third, just one point above Tottenham and five ahead of Arsenal in the race for Champions League qualification.

Asked if Chelsea can end the League campaign as runners-up, Benitez told Chelsea TV: “I don’t like to say that because people then say ‘oh yeah’ and obviously I am trying to be conservative and just say top four.

“But in my head I know if we can play at this level, if we carry on, the balance of the team is fine and they now understand a little better some movements and positions when we’re attacking, I think we can carry on winning games and we can be a threat for City.”
