However, Benitez admits that their match with Tottenham Hotspur, who currently trail Chelsea by three points, is crucial in deciding the outcome of the teams.
"We are in a good position, but we have to carry on and try to do our job which is win games," Benitez told talkSPORT.
"If you lose and your opponents win, then it will be them in the top four. But we are in the driving seat.
"The match with Tottenham is crucial. Goal difference and points are in our favour at the moment, so we will be confident going into the match."
Chelsea travel to Manchester United next Sunday before hosting Spurs three days later.
