Mason Mount emphasized the importance of finishing the season strongly and to not let up. The Blues looked all but secure in the top-four race but the recent string of poor results has threatened Chelsea’s position in the Champions League next season.
“It’s massive, you look over the last couple years we’ve managed to secure the top four. Two years ago we got it with fourth position and the next year we won the Champions League, so you know how massive it is to look ahead to next season and what we can achieve as a team.
“It’s a fresh start and you go again, so to kind of ruin everything that we’ve done this whole season with a couple of games left, it would be heartbreaking for us. So we know what we need to do now.
“When you’re coming to the end of the season you know that you only have a few games left but in our case, we’re focused.
“The season’s not done yet, we’ve got a final to play, we’ve got big games to secure the top four. So you can never slow down and that’s every day in training, we’re still at it and fighting every game.”
