Some of our title rivals have conceded defeat in the Premier League title race with Chelsea 7 points clear at the top with an opportunity to extend the lead to 10 points when we play West Ham tonight.
Chelsea midfielder Nemanja Matic believes our title rivals are claiming title race is over to unsettle Chelsea and hope Chelsea slip up.
“Some people are saying it’s finished because they want us to slip up and this is normal,” Matic told Chelsea’s official website.
“But it’s better to be first, 8 or 10 points clear, than to be second with 10 points less. If we continue to win games, we will be champions. It’s as simple as that.”
