Nemanja Matic shared his thoughts on QPR game with Chelsea FC official website, admitting the clash was very tough:
“It was very difficult and QPR played a good game. It was difficult on a small pitch to control and to play our game but all the players gave our best and fought for every ball and I think we deserved that in the end. Cesc showed us that he is very important for us and is going to be important in the last seven games”
“QPR fought for every ball because they need to to stay in the Premier League and we expected a very hard game, and in the end it was with 1-0 so we are very happy with an important three points to keep seven points in front of Arsenal”
Matic then spoke about the upcoming games against Man United and Arsenal, probably the best teams in the Premier League in this moment, a victory against them can put Chelsea closer to the title:
‘If we win of course and we are ready to compete with them and we know it is going to be difficult. We have seven games left and we have to win four to win the title and I think we can do it to keep this distance”.
