Chelsea keeper Cech: We want top four secured before Champions League final

Chelsea goalkeeper Petr Cech says they want a top four finish - despite reaching the Champions League final.

Chelsea goalkeeper Petr Cech says they want a top four finish - despite reaching the Champions League final.

Chelsea will not need to finish in the top four if they win next month's Champions League final against Bayern Munich at the Allianz Arena.

But Cech said: "We want to go to Munich and have the sense that the job is done and we can then easily concentrate only on the final.

"That would be the ideal scenario but we still have to fight for that to happen.

"We enjoyed the win over QPR because we scored six goals, it makes for a good goal difference, which could be important."

It certainly looks easier for Chelsea to win their final three league games than to beat Bayern on home soil, especially with the German giants having only one meaningful game - the German Cup final - between now and the Champions League showpiece.

Cech said: "Bayern can't win the title so the only thing they will focus on is the game against us. We have a few games where we need to win.

"We are playing so many games with the pressure but on the other hand we will be ready to play another game with the pressure.

"You can never predict what is going to happen on May 19 but, hopefully, it will be a day to remember."
