Chelsea can still finish in the Premier League’s top four, said interim manager Guus Hiddink after his side’s 3-0 win at Crystal Palace on Sunday.
The Blues have not lost in four matches but they are 13 points behind Tottenham who occupy the fourth Champions League spot, with 18 games left in the season.
“It’s difficult because this league has become so strong; everyone can win from everyone,” said Hiddink, 69.
“It’s very difficult to get there. It’s possible but there’s a long way to go.”
