Branislav Ivanovic: Chelsea defender is looking forward to challenges on two fro

The Blues remain in the hunt for a top four finish and also have a Europa League Final against Benfica to look forward to.

And Ivanovic is relishing the prospect of the challenges ahead after a troubled season at Stamford Bridge, which has resulted in manager Roberto Di Matteo being replaced by interim boss Rafael Benitez.

Ivanovic said: "This season has been a very long, very difficult season for us. To have the opportunity to finish the season with a trophy is great and huge motivation for us.

"It's a great opportunity for the manager to win a trophy with us, for us and especially for our fans. The trophy is only what the fans remember."

And Ivanovic reckons Chelsea will know their fate regarding next season's Champions League after their matches with Manchester United and Tottenham.

"For us the next two games in the league are deciding games," Ivanovic added.

"We need points for our aim for Champions League next season. We have to be ready."
