Chelsea midfielder Nemanja Matic spoke after his side’s away win against Crystal Palace last afternoon.
The Serbian international told the club’s official website: “We are very happy because of our form,
“How we play is very good and our confidence is high because to win 11 games in a row in the Premier League is not easy, and we are very happy especially because the last three games we played in a week we won all nine points and I hope we will continue like this”.
The Blues got their 11th win in a row thanks to Diego Costa‘s goal in the first half.
“That shows you that the team is strong and is concentrating in every part of the game. As you see against Crystal Palace, they had some dangerous action but we all stayed together on the pitch and we follow the ideas of our coach and this the result”.
Anyway, Chelsea manager Antonio Conte believes the team can do even better.
“We can improve of course. – Matic stated – Sometimes when we are 1-0 up we have to find a way to kill the game because 1-0 in the Premier League against a team like Crystal Palace is very dangerous, because they can score at any time, they have good attacking players so I am sure that we can improve and that he [Conte] knows what we have to do in the future”.
“It is a long way to go, We are now almost halfway through the season and we still have many hard games so we are not favourites, we are just one of the teams that can now win the title and I am sure there are more than five teams that will try to catch us for first position”.
