"It's very important to win games," Matic told Chelsea TV.
"We're a big team and we have to do this if we want to be closer to the first four. It's very difficult to catch them, but we'll try our best to win every game.
"I think we can be in the first six, but we will try to win every game. I know it's difficult, maybe impossible, but in football anything can happen.
"We will go game by game, step by step, and we will see in the end where we finish in the league."
