Chelsea ace Eden Hazard has urged his team-mates to give their all in the closing weeks of the Premier League season despite being set to miss out on a top-four finish.
The Blues could be forgiven for switching their attentions to trying to win the FA Cup, but Hazard refuses to give up a late charge in the league, with a Champions League spot for next season a long shot.
He told Sky Sports: "In football anything can happen. So we need it believe, we need to trust in each other and try to win every game. That's it.
"We have six games to play in the league and if we win the six games but don't finish in the top four, at least we did everything. So no regrets, let's play one month."
The Blues are in action at lunchtime on Saturday when they head to the South Coast to take on struggling Southampton, with Chelsea 17/20 to win the game, 8/1 to do so by a 2-0 scoreline and 6/4 to keep a clean sheet.
Meanwhile, Hazard admitted that missing out on Champions League football for a second time in three seasons would be a big disappointment, but one that he and his colleagues would have to live with.
He added: "I think it's not good, because you want to play Champions League every year.
"So we try to give everything to play the best way we can to finish in the top four. If we are not in the top four, we will play next year for the Premier League, that's it."
