Chelsea midfielder demands no complacency in title push

Chelsea midfielder Ramires insists that Chelsea must continue pushing for the title and leave no room for complacency.

The Blues are seven points at the top of the table and in a commanding position to win the English Premier League title after a 4-0 thrashing of London neighbors Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday.

However Mourinho’s men have no games in hand, unlike the other title contenders – Liverpool and Arsenal have one game while Manchester City hold three games in hand.

If the Citizens were to take maximum points out of their three games, they would tie Chelsea on points but take the lead because of their superior goal difference.

The Brazilian midfielder told Globo Esporte: “Manchester City have games in hand and a lot can happen.

“We have to keep focusing on a game at a time, we can’t fall into the trap of thinking that everything is okay.

“Any slip-up could be fatal at this point in the league.”

He then went on to mention the importance of the Chelsea fan-base and that they must stick together if they are to come out as champions at the end of the season.

“The fans at Stamford Bridge have been our 12th player, they are creating an atmosphere which really helps our team,” he said.

“It’s hard not to be excited right now but there is still a lot to be done before we can talk about the title.”

The Blues will hope to keep the seven point lead at the top when they face Aston Villa at Villa Park this weekend.
