Chelsea’s win against Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park on Saturday was the 11th win in a row for the Blues, and Chelsea are the only team to have won 11 games in a row, in a single season.
According to Nemanja Matic, the strength in the team, confidence and concentration are the reasons Chelsea have come this far without losing a game.
“We are very happy because of our form,” confirmed Matic after the game. “How we play is very good and our confidence is high because to win 11 games in a row in the Premier League is not easy, and we are very happy especially because the last three games we played in a week we won all nine points and I hope we will continue like this.”
“That shows you that the team is strong and is concentrating in every part of the game. As you see against Crystal Palace, they had some dangerous action but we all stayed together on the pitch and we follow the ideas of our coach and this the result.
“We can improve of course. Sometimes when we are 1-0 up we have to find a way to kill the game because 1-0 in the Premier League against a team like Crystal Palace is very dangerous, because they can score at any time, they have good attacking players so I am sure that we can improve and that he [Conte] knows what we have to do in the future.
“It is a long way to go,” Matic added. “We are now almost halfway through the season and we still have many hard games so we are not favourites, we are just one of the teams that can now win the title and I am sure there are more than five teams that will try to catch us for first position.” Said the Serbian.
