Two years ago, Chelsea secured the Premier League title three weeks before the end of the season, and finished eight points higher than second-placed Manchester City. This time, Nemanja Matic does not expect his team to celebrate that early.
This year is more difficult. We finished 2015 eight points clear of Man City. I’m not sure this will be the case with Tottenham
the Serbia international told reporters, rather confident that their city rivals will hang in there longer than City did in 2015.
I’m sure they will not give up until end of the season. At this moment it’s hard, but we will see. Each time we win, they win, two years ago that was not the case
the Chelsea midfielder said. The Blues have a four-point gap between them and Tottenham, four games before the end of the season, and what looks like a more manageable schedule that that of Mauricio Pochettino’s team.
They have some difficult games, home and away, so everything is open until the end. The important thing is that we are playing well, we take points and we will see if they can drop some points
Matic said, eager to lift another trophy during his time at Stamford Bridge.
