Sturridge backs Blues for Premier League title

Chelsea striker Daniel Sturridge believes his side can still win the Premier League despite a setback against Wigan this weekend, The Daily Mail reports.

Sturridge scored the opener for the Blues, but an error from goalkeeper Petr Cech allowed Chelsea to drop two points. The Blues are now nine points behind Sturridge’s former club Manchester City, but the forward believes it will be foolish to write off Chelsea. Andre Villas-Boas takes his side to North London for a massive clash with Tottenham at White Hart Lane on Thursday.

The England forward said: ‘These sort of draws are upsetting because we worked so hard for the full game, but we conceded a goal at the very end. It is frustrating for everyone and it is important that we bounce back, which we will. We have done that in the last few weeks when we have had difficult games and we have stepped up.’

Sturridge is the club’s leading goalscorer and has been tipped to travel with England to Euro 2012 this summer. The Chelsea forward is content with his form, but would much rather see the Blues win the league than individual honours.
