Di Matteo Says Chelsea Still The Underdogs

Chelsea manager Roberto Di Matteo has claimed that the Blues are still not favourites for the Premier League title despite being top of the table, according to talkSPORT.

Chelsea beat Arsenal at the Emirates yesterday and remain three points clear at the top of the league but Di Matteo still feels that Manchester United and Manchester City are the teams expected to be in the top two come May.

“We need to improve,” Di Matteo told talkSPORT.

“This team was put together not long ago and it takes a bit of time [to get things right].

“I think we’re pleased with the start in our Premier League campaign but we’re looking to improve as well.

“I think Man United and Man City are still the favourites and City are the champions so it is normal that everyone will be looking to chase them.

“We had a big gap [between Chelsea and Man City] last season and we want to improve on that this season.”
