Chelsea’s win against Hull City took the Blues eight points clear in the title race, and with 16 games left, Chelsea surely look like the number one candidate to win the title.

The Chelsea manager was asked in his post-match press conference if the title was Chelsea’s to lose. He replied: “No. In my experience as a footballer I won and lost titles four games from the end. Now, we have an eight-point lead and there are 16 games to play. We have good experience and understand this league will be very tough until the end. To win this type of game and exploit the situation with other teams dropping points is important, but I’m sure it will be tough until the end. To be in this position is fantastic because at the start of the season nobody would have thought it.”
