Maurizio Sarri suggested reaching the EFL Cup final with Chelsea this season was just as difficult as Tottenham’s run to the Champions League semi-finals.

The Blues beat Liverpool in round three and Tottenham over two legs in the last four of the domestic competition, as well as overcoming Derby County and Bournemouth in-between, before losing on penalties to Manchester City in February’s final.

Chelsea are now left battling for fourth place in the Premier League and are through to the semi-finals of the Europa League, courtesy of a 5-3 aggregate win over Slavia Prague, leaving two paths open for next season’s Champions League.

Sarri insists qualifying for UEFA’s elite club tournament is not the be all and end all for his side, though, and he believes going all the way in continental competition is perhaps not as tough as it is made out, with luck playing a big part.
