Newcastle midfielder Yohan Cabaye is refusing to contemplate the prospect of playing in the UEFA Champions League next season.

Saturday's 3-0 Premier League victory over Stoke, coupled with Chelsea's 0-0 draw at Arsenal and Tottenham's 1-0 defeat at QPR, saw the Magpies climb into fourth place with four games remaining.

They are three points adrift of Arsenal in third and have a game in hand on the Gunners.

Newcastle still have Chelsea and Manchester City to play in their remaining four games and Cabaye is looking no further ahead than next Saturday's trip to Wigan.

Cabaye, who inspired Newcastle to the win over Stoke with two goals and an assist, is refusing to get carried away despite winning their last six games.


"We have got big confidence on the pitch. We just want to keep going," insisted Cabaye.

"The next thing is to be focused on the Wigan match. That's the most important thing.

"After, we can see what happens, but we have to think match by match. We can do something special for the team."
