Cech believes Chelsea out of title race

Chelsea goalkeeper Petr Cech has admitted that his side’s chances of winning the Premier League title are slim and they would be better concentrating on finishing in the top four, Sky Sports reports. The Blues were held to a 1-1 draw with Swansea and left themselves seven points behind London rivals Tottenham in third.

Andre Villas-Boas’ side are also 12 points behind Manchester City and Manchester United after the draw at the Liberty Stadium and the Czech international concedes that their title dreams may be finished for another season. The 29 year old has won three Premier League titles with the Blues since his 2004 switch from Rennes and has established himself as one of the best goalkeepers in Europe. Cech believes they have a realistic chance of making third place, but will have to beat Manchester United at Stamford Bridge on Sunday.

Cech said: ‘We don’t even have to mention the word ‘title’ because the Manchester clubs will not drop many points. That’s the reality. I still think it is realistic to target the third sport, though. For that we will need to succeed in Sunday’s tough match (against Manchester United).’

The 29 year old had been linked with a move away from the club in January’s transfer window, but is expected to stay at the club even with interest in the summer. Cech believes that Tuesday’s game at the Liberty Stadium was a deserved draw and the Blues have no qualms with only picking up a point from a tough Swansea side.
