The Chelsea FC midfielder is hoping to win the FA Cup and finish in the Premier League's top four this term
N’Golo Kante has underlined his desire to win the FA Cup and finish in the Premier League’s top four.
The defending Premier League champions were 2-1 extra-time winners against Leicester City at the King Power Stadium in the FA Cup quarter-final on Sunday afternoon.
Alvaro Morata broke the deadlock to end his goal drought before Pedro Rodriguez netted a winner in 105th minute at Leicester.
Chelsea FC will take on Southampton in the FA Cup semi-finals at Wembley as Antonio Conte’s side look to make amends for their 2-1 loss to Arsenal in the final last term.
The Blues are in fifth place in the Premier League table and five points behind Tottenham Hotspur in hunt to secure a top-four finish.
Speaking to BBC Sport about Chelsea FC’s targets for the remainder of the 2017-18 season, Kante said:
“We will fight until the end to be in the top four and the Champions League positions.
“We have the FA Cup, which is a good competition. Last season we failed in the final.
“It’s the only title we can win this season so we have to give everything to go in the final and win it.”
Kante moved to Chelsea FC in a £30m deal from Leicester City in the 2016 summer transfer window.
The Blues have won the Premier League title in two of the past three seasons at Stamford Bridge.
The west London side are looking to win silverware in successive seasons under Italian coach Conte.
Chelsea FC lost 4-1 on aggregate to La Liga giants Barcelona in the Champions League round of 16.
