NemanjaMatic insists Chelsea must not dwell on dropping points at struggling West Brom as they battle to win the Premier League title.
The league leaders missed the chance to go four points clear of Arsenal and five ahead of Manchester City when they drew 1-1 at The Hawthorns.
Victor Anichebe’s late goal denied Jose Mourinho’s side, but January signing Matic is eager to put that disappointment behind him.
“I said after the Man City game [which Chelsea won 1-0] that we’ll fight until the end of the season,” Matic told the club’s official website.
“We need to take it game by game and play as well as we can in order to win matches. At the end of the season we’ll see if we can be champions.
“We always believe, we just try to improve and give our best. We have a young team, we are not favourites but if we have a chance to be champions we want to take it.
“We are not happy because we drew 1-1, we came here to win but that’s football, that’s life. Now we have to concentrate on the next training session and next game.”
BranislavIvanovic’s first-half goal looked to have put Chelsea on course for victory, but Matic admitted the London club lost their way after the break.No tags for this post.
