Gary Cahill has said the title race is “open” after Chelsea came back from 2-1 down to beat Watford 4-2 at Stamford Bridge on Saturday.
“I’m not saying it’s going to happen, but we need to calm down and get back to it. We are in the middle of October and there are loads of games to play.
“Man City have loads of tough games to play, Man United and everyone else have massive games to play. I still think it is open.
“If Man City keep smashing people, they are going to go on and win the league — deservedly.
“But it is difficult to maintain it for such a long period and if they do — or whoever does do that, and it was us last year — they deserve to win the league.”
“It’s easy to play football when everything is going well and you are winning games back-to-back — it’s the best feeling ever,” he said.
“You can go out there and express yourself, you feel like you’re not going to make mistakes. The hardest thing is when things are not going so well and you have got to dig in and get results.
“Obviously this moment is one of them, hence why the [Watford] result was good.
“When things are going well, everyone’s coming into training, having a lot of banter and enjoying things — and when you are not, it’s not that feeling because the expectation is to win. That’s natural.
“That’s why there is no better feeling than getting a win and then getting a bit of consistency, some games won and back-to-back wins.”
