Chelsea star is waiting to see Liverpool buckle under the pressure

Chelsea goalkeeper Petr Cech has questioned whether Liverpool will manage to cope with the pressure of the Premier League title race, reports Sky Sports.

The Reds sit two points clear of Chelsea at the top of the table, and the two are set to meet at Anfield in just under a fortnight’s time.

Liverpool know that four wins from their remaining four games will see them crowned title winners for the first time since 1990, but Cech has questioned whether they will be able to handle the pressure of the run in.

“No-one expected anything from Liverpool and they are in contention and that is why they play without pressure so far, but let’s see how they are going to cope when it comes to the last hurdle,” Cech said.

“They will have to jump over it and they have been doing remarkably well. We have things in our hands. We need to wait for one slip-up from Manchester City, but if we win our games we have a chance.

“At the start, everyone has 38 games to have the most points and I don’t think at the end of 38 games it is a question of luck. The one who gets the most points obviously deserves to win the title, so we will see who it will be.

“It is great to put ourselves in a situation where we know we have a chance. So we will go for it. If we win all of our games, right at the end we will be in contention.”
