Chelsea interim manager Guus Hiddink says the 2-2 draw at home against Watford is a "fair result".
The Blues showed signs of improvement but could only manage a draw against Quique Sanchez Flores' determined side.
They keep their 15th position in the table with the Dutchman admitting that a Top Four finish is difficult to achieve.
"At the end it is a fair result," Hiddink told BBC Sport.
"You have to have respect Watford because they have been on a winning streak and have very decent strikers. But in the end I think we could have made a little bit more, we had some chances and it was a pity Oscar slipped for the penalty.
"Diego Costa, when he is focused on what he is good at like today, he has his profit from his play. He will not be there [against Manchester United on Monday] which means we have to think a bit.
"[Eden] Hazard came back in the last week and had two training sessions and we hope he can be fully fit.
"The fans have the right to express their minds on what happened [after Jose Mourinho's sacking] - we must not underestimate that and give them all the freedom to do so.
"But we have to go on and that is my main concern now. We have to get the team fit mentally and physically.
"It's difficult [to finish in the Top Four].
"To be finishing fourth you have to win these games and also depend on your opponents. But I want to see the team showing that ambition until it is mathematically impossible."
