Chelsea won the title last season although they are struggling to make the top four this time around.
Nevertheless, five consecutive wins have put them into a good position to overhaul either Liverpool or Tottenham, with Olivier Giroud hoping that his previous successes with Arsenal will help his new club.
“They (Spurs) lost this weekend, so it gives us a bit more energy and hope, so that’s why we want to fight to the end,” said Giroud.
“I hope I can be the lucky charm for the Champions League race in the final sprint. We don’t have it in our hands but I have experience about these kind of end-of-season situations. We need to give everything and wait for the other results. I’m confident because if we play with that kind of mentality we can have nice things.”
Eden Hazard was the star turn as Chelsea beat Liverpool on Sunday and the Belgian is also feeling optimistic.
“It does not only depend on us but we will play, hopefully win, and then see the results Tottenham and Liverpool can get,” Eden Hazard said. “We will just give everything.
“Beating Liverpool was a massive result. Now the target is just to win and be in the top four at the end of the season and, if we play like this the last three games, we can have something special at the end of the season.
“Let’s hope for something big. We all work together and when we play the kind of game we did against Liverpool it is a good feeling.”
