Gary Cahill insisted Chelsea still believe they will finish in the Premier League top four, despite their goalless draw with Tottenham.
The result at Stamford Bridge left the Blues five points behind their opponents with just eight matches remaining and in real danger of failing to qualify for the Champions League for the first time since Roman Abramovich bought the club.
Roberto Di Matteo's four successive victories in all competitions after being appointed caretaker manager suddenly seem a long time ago, with the past five days having seen Chelsea pick up just one point from two league matches.
More worrying was the fact that they were second best on both occasions ahead of a run-in that is markedly more difficult than Tottenham's.
But Blues and England defender Cahill said: "We have to be confident. Our form of late's been good.
"Obviously, we've got to win basically the majority of the games we've got left and we've got some tough games coming up. That's our target, that's what we're aiming for."
