Reports have emerged claiming that Cesc Fabregas insists Chelsea can still win the Premier League title this season.
Despite their shocking form, the former Arsenal and Barcelona star is confident Chelsea can turn their dire situation around and beat their rivals to the trophy.
“I still believe we can win the league,” he told The Sun.
“It’s not going to be easy but a ten point gap at this stage of the season is not impossible.
“Last season, we took 22 points from our first eight games but this time every team has lost at least one.
“Manchester City lost to West Ham and Tottenham when no one expected it, Manchester United and Arsenal have also dropped points. No one at Chelsea is happy with our current position but I would prefer to be here now than at the end of the season.
“It’s not how we start the campaign, it’s where we finish it. There is still almost 80 per cent of the season to go so we have more than enough time to recover. But we need to start that recovery this weekend.”
