Mikel: Chelsea capable of Champions League title and top four finish

Chelsea midfielder John Obi Mikel feels the Blues are capable of winning the Champions League and finishing in the top four of the Premier League. The Nigerian would like to win every remaining game this season, starting with Wednesday's Champions League second leg against Benfica, and is hopeful of overhauling either Tottenham or Arsenal.

"We still have the league form to get in there," he told the club's official website. "Arsenal and Tottenham still have some difficult games, and we have to play Arsenal so who knows what will happen there.

"With our recent good form I still think we can get in, it is tight but we can only keep going.

"Nobody wants to be in the Europa League here, we all want to be in the top competition because we have Champions League players. We don't want to drop down, so we have to do everything possible to qualify.

"And listen, we can win the Champions League. We still have very good teams to beat though, starting with Benfica, but we can compete with anybody.

"Barcelona, Bayern Munich, Real Madrid are all great teams so it is looking difficult but we want to do it. First though, we can only focus on Benfica who we know will give us a difficult game."
