Thibaut Courtois is convinced Chelsea are still in a strong position to secure a top-four Premier League finish this season.
Antonio Conte's side have dropped to fifth in the league after losing three of their last four top-flight matches, including a 2-1 defeat at Manchester United on Sunday.
Neville on race for second
In his latest podcast, Gary Neville ponders which club is leading the race for second in the Premier League.
Chelsea goalkeeper Courtois is taking heart from their performance at Old Trafford and the 1-1 draw against Barcelona, however, as they look to secure a Champions League place again next season.
The Belgium international concedes Manchester City - 13 points clear of second-placed Manchester United with a game in hand - are too far ahead of the chasing pack to be caught, but he has his sights set on United, Liverpool and Tottenham in the battle for fourth.
"It stays the same, it is tough," Courtois told Chelsea's official website.
"City are obviously far away but for the second, third and fourth spot there are five teams so it will be hard until the last match of the season.
"But I think we have enough quality as we saw on Sunday and we showed it against Barcelona. I think we are a very good team but there are some other good teams around us as well."
