Chelsea’s international goalkeeper Petr Cech has said that the title race this season will be competed against the likes of Manchester United, Manchester City, and Chelsea. The Czech Republic goalkeeper has been one of the influential players for Chelsea over the last decade. Even though he has played in numerous matches for the club, he is still capable of producing the best in the big matches. The Czech republic stopper was one of the key reasons for Chelsea winning the Champions League title last season. After having made a great start to the new Premier league season, Chelsea have suffered a number of bad results since the 3-2 defeat against Manchester United.
Chelsea enjoyed a four-point advantage at the top of the table following the 4-2 win over Tottenham, but since then, they have been able to take only two points from three matches. This has allowed Manchester United to open a three-point advantage at the top of the table. Despite losing the advantage, the Czech Republic goalkeeper Petr Cech is confident that the club can win the first league title since 2010. He has also identified in Manchester United and Manchester city, the two main competitors for Chelsea in the title race.
“We had a very good start. Manchester United started with a defeat but are now top and City had a very good victory because losing 1-0 you think Tottenham might get something out of the game but they managed to win and now have the advantage over us. It’s early days and we still have to play them (City) in two weeks, which will be a big game for both teams,” said the Chelsea goalkeeper after the 1-1 draw with Liverpool during the weekend. John Terry opened the scoring, but Luis Suarez equalised for Liverpool in the second half.
