Chelsea manager Roberto di Matteo warned his side not to ease up against Newcastle in the Premier League on Wednesday ahead of their FA Cup final clash with Liverpool at Wembley this weekend.
The Chelsea interim manager has helped revive the Londoners' season since replacing the sacked Andre Villas-Boas at Stamford Bridge and Champions League finalists Chelsea could end the season with two trophies.
But if they don't beat Bayern Munich in the Champions League final on the Germans' own ground on May 19, Chelsea will have to finish in the top four of the Premier League to be sure of a spot in next term's edition.
Newcastle, a point in front of Chelsea as are Tottenham, promise to prove a stiff stumbling block and former Blues and Italy midfielder di Matteo insisted it was this match, not the FA Cup final, that was uppermost in his mind.
"I'm deciding for the game tomorrow," di Matteo said Tuesday. "We'll see how the game goes tomorrow and then I'll be thinking about Saturday."
As for the pressures facing Chelsea, who've never won the European Cup, di Matteo said: "We have players that have been in this situation before and have certainly the experience to be playing in all these important games with a lot of pressure on us.
"It could prove decisive."
