Chelsea returned to winning ways in the premier league when they beat Watford last Saturday at Stamford Bridge, and club captain Gary Cahill has declared the race for the title ‘open’, without minding Manchester City’s superb start to the season.
Pep Guardiola’s side have been able to win eight of their nine premier league games this season and are now leading second-placed Manchester United with five points.
Chelsea on the other hand have lost three games already and are nine points behind the league leaders.
However, the Stamford Bridge club were in a similar situation last season before experiencing a turn of events that made them finished the season at the top of the premier league table, winning the trophy with seven points.
And skipper Gary Cahill has called for ‘calm’, as his side aim to build on their recent win over Watford.
The defending champions have been struggling for superb form in recent weeks, but were able to come from behind to beat in-form Watford and get a much-needed three points at Stamford Bridge.
And Cahill, speaking recently about the situation of things, drew attention to what happened last season when Chelsea were eight points behind Pep Guardiola’s side, but still managed to come from behind to win the league.
According to him, both Manchester United and Manchester City still have lots of tough games to play, and that the title is still very much open to anyone.
