Chelsea manager Roberto Di Matteo is still refusing to declare his side as genuine title contenders despite their impressive 4-2 win over Tottenham.

The Blues came from 2-1 behind to claim their seventh Barclays Premier League win of the season as Di Matteo's attacking players continue to impress. Yet despite the result, Di Matteo believes it is premature to start talking about whether Chelsea are the favourites for the Premier League title.

"I think I would say it is too early to say that," he said. "There are 30 games still to play. It makes us a team that is strong and makes our start even better, but with 30 more games I still think that you have to wait until the Christmas period."
