After Chelsea’s brilliant result on Saturday, Danny Drinkwater won’t concede the Premier League title to Manchester City just yet, Goal reports.
Manchester City are 13 points ahead of Chelsea and have a game in hand as they play Crystal Palace on Sunday.
Despite Chelsea being relentless against Stoke City in the 5-0 win, Pep Guardiola’s side will have to endure a poor spell for us to catch them.
When speaking after the win over the Potters, Drinkwater was full of positivity, understandably so having bagged his first goal fro Chelsea.
Drinkwater is quoted by Goal saying:
“It [the title race] is not over until it’s over. So we have to keep on winning.
“I’m happy with my goal, it’s a nice feeling to score.”
Drinkwater superb in thrashing Stoke City
Not only was the deadline day signing’s goal a beauty against Mark Hughes side, his overall performance was convincing to say the least.
The chemistry he still has with N’Golo Kante from their time at Leicester City is still there.
Drinkwater snuffed out any pressure from the visitors as well as linking up play as Chelsea transitioned in attack.
The Englishman will certainly have a role to play if we are to mount any title challenge against City. City are currently favourites to win the Premier League with odds of 1/250 on SkyBet, but could Chelsea turn things around and snag the title?
