The Blues face testing Premier League clashes against Manchester United on Sunday before the visit of London neighbours Tottenham on Wednesday.

And despite having already booked their place in the Europa League final against Benfica in Amsterdam later this month, Spain star Mata says the club must focus their attentions on qualifying for Europe's elite competition.

He told the Daily Star: "We have to get in the top four. We have to win these two games.

"We want Champions League football next season. After that we can try to win another trophy.

"There are two tough games ahead. Playing Tottenham is going to be like a final because both teams will be fighting for the same thing.

"If we can beat Tottenham it will be a big step forward.

"But before that we have to think about Manchester United."

m not sure about this distance covered malarky, plus that stat comes with *since February attached to it, that's just 1 month. I mean I have 27 open cases I'm 'working on' at the moment but believe me others with 10 cases work harder than I do. I just got back from a pub lunch, scampi and chips (+4 pints) in case you were wondering.
