Chelsea defender Rudiger: Top four finish now in our hands

Chelsea defender Toni Rudiger says top four finish is now in their hands.

Rudiger has told his Chelsea pals that a top-four finish is now theirs to lose on the back of their statement win at Liverpool.

He said: “Yes, Thursday's win felt like a statement — it was a massive three points because it was also against a competitor for the top four, so it gives us more.

Chelsea against Liverpool is always a classic game and to win at Anfield and take the three points home was a massive win.

“The top four can happen but it depends all on us.

“It's game by game and the next game is Everton, then the next game and the next game…

“It's like this, but it is all in our hands.

“We just have to look forward.

“We have good momentum, which is all we have to think about."
