Mark Schwarzer believes that Chelsea’s hopes of claiming the Premier League title are not yet over.

The Blues dropped into third spot yesterday after Manchester City’s win, and are now reliant on both the Sky Blues and Liverpool slipping up in their last two games.

Chelsea trail the table-topping Reds by two points, but a win against Norwich this afternoon will put them at the summit with the top three all tightly packed.

City also possess a far superior goal difference, but Schwarzer – who has been a first-team regular in recent weeks at Stamford Bridge following Petr Cech’s injury – insists that the fight is not over:

“It’s still mathematically possible for us to win the league and we will try to do that to the very end.” He is quoted by the Daily Star.

“We haven’t said anything in the dressing room about what the manager has said.

“The manager has his way of dealing with the press and we just get on with our work on the training field.

“We concentrate on each and every game and there is a sense of self-belief in our changing room. We have top-class players all over the field and we know within the group what we can achieve.”

This season could be Schwarzer’s last in West London, with Thibaut Courtois being backed to return to Chelsea from his three-year loan stint at Atletico Madrid.
