Matic not giving up on top four

Nemanja Matic insists Chelsea will not give up on Champions League qualification until it is mathematically beyond them.

The reigning Premier League champions have been stuck in the bottom half of the table for much of the season but Tuesday's 2-1 win at Norwich saw them move up to eighth.

As they remain five points adrift of Manchester United in fifth and eight behind fourth-placed Manchester City, a top four finish looks unlikely but Matic believes 'anything can happen' if they continue to get the right results.

"It is very important to win games," he told Chelsea TV.

"We are a big team and we have to do this if we want to be closer to the first four. It is very difficult to catch them, but we will try our best to win every game.

"I think we can be in the first six, but we will try to win every game. I know it's difficult, maybe impossible, but in football anything can happen.

"We will go game by game, step by step, and we will see in the end where we finish in the league."
