Villas-Boas admits title challenge over

Chelsea manager Andre Villas-Boas admits that the club’s poor form in December has cost them their chance of winning the Premier League, The Guardian reports.

The Blues were beaten 3-1 by Aston Villa at Stamford Bridge yesterday and find themselves on a four game run without a victory. Villas-Boas has now lost three at home so far this season and saw them slip to fifth, level on points with sixth placed Liverpool. Chelsea now face Wolves at Molineux on January 2nd and must get three points to keep their slim chances of the title alive.

Villas-Boas himself does not believe his side have a good chance of challenging for the title following a poor December. Chelsea started December well with victories at Newcastle and over league leaders Manchester City, but drew away at Wigan and drew with Fulham on Boxing Day.

The Chelsea manager said: ‘It’s disappointing on the fact that, in the last three fixtures, all the top teams have dropped points. We spoke about how December could have been decisive in the running of the league. All of them dropped points, but we couldn’t make the most of it. It’s difficult for us to be in perspective for league contention this year. I don’t think the title is realistic’.
