Kurt Zouma: 'Chelsea want top four as a minimum'

Kurt Zouma reveals that Chelsea will not settle for anything less than a top-four place come the end of the season.

Kurt Zouma has revealed that Chelsea will not settle for anything less than a top-four place come the end of the season.

The Blues defender and his teammates face Bournemouth at Stamford Bridge this weekend, a team who have also been struggling for Premier League wins this season, as both clubs sit in the bottom half of the table.

However, despite Chelsea's poor form this season, the 21-year-old says that the team are aiming to secure a Champions League place come the end of the season.

"We want to be in the top four, minimum. We want to be back in our normal situation," Zouma told Sky Sports News.

"We are training hard for that, and if we keep training hard and keep winning we can be back for sure. Things are turning for us.

"It's been very good for me. I've learnt a lot. Last year we were winning everything and I was learning easily. Now, we are not winning but I am still learning. I'm playing much more than last year and I want to improve even more."

Zouma has scored twice in 20 appearances for the club this season.
