Chelsea lost grounds in the title race as the Blues lost to Manchester City in Stamford Bridge on Saturday evening.
The loss to City ensured we are now six points behind Manchester City and Manchester United, who are yet to lose a game in the league this season.
However, Chelsea captain Gary Cahill believes that Chelsea shouldn’t be written off just after seven round of matches played so far.
Cahill said: “They are setting the pace at the top of the league at the moment, as are Manchester United. They’re both getting very good results and scoring a lot of goals, but let’s see. We’re in September, so let’s get to Christmas, January time – hopefully we’ll be in and around the top and then we’ll see from there. We’re experienced in it, but it’s disappointing to lose points here against Manchester City.
“We proved last season we’ve got enough to win the league, but we realise it’s very difficult. We’ve done it twice since I’ve been here and both times it’s been extremely difficult. Look at the strength of the teams around us, but it’s just important that we fight to the end.”
