Chelsea goalkeeper Petr Cech insists the Blues will do everything in their power to win this season's Premier League title ahead of Liverpool - and has warned the Reds that nothing is settled yet, despite their 3-2 victory over Manchester City on Sunday.
Cech believes Chelsea's experience could see them pip the inexperienced Liverpool to pole position before the end of the season. The two sides go head-to-head at Anfield on Sunday April 27 - a game which could decide who goes on to win the Premier League title race.
Manchester City remain in the mix too, despite Sunday's defeat at Anfield, and Cech is firmly of the opinion that plenty will happen between now and the end of the season.
“Nobody expected anything from Liverpool this season and they’re in contention — it’s why they’ve been able to play without pressure so far,” the Chelsea 'keeper told the London Evening Standard. “But let’s see how they will cope when it comes to the last hurdle. They will have to jump over it. They have been doing remarkably well but we’re still around.
“Obviously, we have to wait for one slip up from Manchester City but if we win our games we have a chance.
“We have players who are used to playing big games. Sometimes when you have a young team full of enthusiasm they don’t feel any pressure, they just play. But we have just four games to play now and if we win all of our matches, we will be there right to the end. That’s what we will try to do, to go game-by-game, try win them all and then we’ll see where we’ll be. We will go for it.”
Chelsea kept themselves two points behind league-leaders Liverpool thanks to Sunday afternoon's 1-0 victory away at Swansea City. Jose Mourinho's men also secured their place in the Champions League semi-finals last week, and will take on La Liga high-fliers Atletico Madrid over two legs.
