Interim Chelsea boss Rafa Benitez has called on his side to secure a victory against Tottenham Hotspur on Wednesday to ensure Champions League qualification.

The Blues grabbed a late winner in a 1-0 victory at Manchester United to move three points clear of Spurs with three games to play and, as they hold a much better goal difference, a win at Stamford Bridge in midweek will be enough to seal a top-four finish.

Chelsea are 1.90 to defeat Spurs on Wednesday evening and are 9.50 to triumph by a 2-0 scoreline, while the Blues are now 1.083 to finish in the top four.

"If we can win we will be there, but Tottenham are a good team and it will be a final for the top four," Benitez told the club's official website.

"This game was difficult and important for us. Wednesday will be even more important as we are so close to them.

"Winning is crucial for us, it's even more important for them. We will try to win because we know it will guarantee a top-four finish."

Chelsea currently have 68 points from 35 games, with Arsenal fourth with 67 points from 36 games, while Spurs are on 65 points from 35 games.

Everton's slim hopes of finishing in the top four came to an end on Sunday as they drew 0-0 with Liverpool at Anfield, but they are five points behind Spurs and could still pip the north Londoners for fifth place and a Europa League spot.
