Vincent Kompany targets Champions League qualification and FA Cup final place

Vincent Kompany targets Champions League qualification and FA Cup final place

Antonio Conte's men suffered a shock defeat to Crystal Palace on Saturday to see their lead at the top cut to seven points, but an Eden Hazard brace either side of a Sergio Aguero strike saw the Blues get back to winning ways at Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea struck first in the contest at Stamford Bridge here, as Hazard scored in the 10th minute on a shot that visiting goalkeeper Willy Caballero should have stopped. We have to do so to play well and that's what we did against Manchester City.

"I think Manchester United and Arsenal will miss out, that's my prediction", the Liverpool legend said, when asked to predict which teams would make it into the Champions League. I don't know if the way we played was lovely but the most important thing is to win games.

With Tottenham having come from behind to win 3-1 at Swansea City, Chelsea's lead would have been cut to four points if they had lost to Manchester City.

"I think he's crying out to the owners in the interviews that "if you give me five or six players that can help all these exciting players going forward, then I'll deliver". We have a slightly superior goal-difference than both, and there's no guarantees they'll pick up consecutive wins, of course. I like to have the main role in the game. He said, "We need to start translating our home form to when we go away because in front of our own fans we are playing well and with a lot of confidence".

City remain in a battle for Champions League qualification places with Tottenham, Liverpool, Arsenal, Manchester United and Everton.

That result leaves City fourth and four points ahead of Arsenal, who have a game in hand. "Usually I like to say only who wins write the history".

The 47-year-old told reporters: "First of all, I think it's better to look at ourselves".

But Tottenham, without goalkeeper Hugo Lloris who withdrew late through illness, salvaged three points thanks to dramatic late strikes in the 88th, 91st and 94th minutes.
