Robert Sanchez has revealed that Chelsea’s target for this season is to get a UEFA Champions League spot.
The Blues are not in the competition this term after finishing 12th last season. The team have however shown great promise so far in this campaign, after getting decent results in matches against top sides like Arsenal, Liverpool, Tottenham and Manchester City.
Chelsea played out an entertaining 4-4 draw against the reigning Premier League champions on Sunday, and Sanchez has now expressed belief the team will only keep getting better.
“It [the Champions League] is a big ask, but we have got spirit, confidence, belief and [with] the quality we have, we can get there,” he said, according to the Evening Standard.
“If we keep improving in every game and getting points in every game, then I think it is possible.
“We went toe-to-toe [with City] and we know how good we are on counter-attacks as well. We played quick and fast, and scored four goals.
“Everybody was on it. From myself to Nico [Jackson] the striker, we were all on it. It shows you should never give up. We can get more and more near the top like we deserve.”
