"It's something that has happened a few times this season.
"We've had opportunities to close gaps and jump over teams because of other results or whatever situation.
"But we haven't done it and that's a sign of where we are. We know we have a lot of hard work to do to get where we want to be and the reason the rest of us are chasing Liverpool and Man City is because of the consistency that develops over time. That's what we have to work towards.

"We have to realise the position we are in in terms of fighting for the Champions League places and move forward."
