Chelsea's Brazil midfielder Ramires has come out claiming his team are good enough to "win it all" this season.
Chelsea fought to a 2-2 all draw with West Brom at Stamford Bridge this weekend, a game many expected them to win. Had it not been for a controversial penalty decision late on, they could have quite easily been defeated.
With league leaders Arsenal dropping points against Manchester United, Chelsea are now just four points away from the top of the Premier League, recovering from a slow start to their Champions League form in the process.
Ramires believes that this Chelsea team lead by Mourinho are more than capable, he told www.sambafoot.com: "The Premier League is one of the toughest competitions in the world, but we have the means to win.
"Our team is very strong and we can win it all this season."
The combative midfielder has been subject to circulating rumours regarding his future of late, with Real Madrid apparently keeping a close eye on the Blues number seven.
However, the player only signed a new contract extension last year, and therefore a transfer away from west London seems unlikely.
Regarding the Madrid rumours the player added: "I am very happy here. I am respected and part of the club's history.
"If I leave, Chelsea would have to make the decision. Chelsea is one of the biggest clubs in the world. I have realised my dream here."
