Navas calls for Man City focus after UCL euphoria

Jesus Navas has called on Manchester City to forget the UEFA Champions League (UCL)and focus fully on Saturday’s Premier League trip to Chelsea.
City reached their maiden Champions League semi-final with a thrilling 3-2 aggregate win over Paris Saint-Germain on Tuesday, a triumph sealed by 1-0 second-leg victory at the Etihad Stadium.
Kevin De Bruyne’s stunning 76th-minute strike sparked delirious celebrations from City players and fans alike, with Manuel Pellegrini’s team now looking forward to today’s last-four draw that will see them paired with Bayern Munich, Real Madrid or Atletico Madrid.
However, City still have work to do if they are to take their seat at European football’s top table next season by virtue of finishing in the Premier League’s top four.
Pellegrini’s men are well placed to do just that, sitting four points clear of arch-rivals Manchester United with six games to play after bouncing back from their derby defeat with wins over AFC Bournemouth and West Brom.
But, with a continental glamour tie on the horizon, winger Navas has urged his team-mates to avoid taking their eye off the ball domestically – especially at Stamford Bridge this weekend.
“We have to keep getting three points out of each game,” the Spain international said.
“We have done well in the last couple of games and we must keep it that way.
“We are feeling very confident and we are working together to achieve our goal. As I say, we are keeping the ball nicely and creating danger.”
