Cesc Fabregas has said Chelsea and the other Premier League title challengers are waiting for Manchester City to slip as Pep Guardiola’s side continue to dominate.
Despite Chelsea claiming six wins from their last seven games, Fabregas knows they need City to start dropping points to give them any chance of retaining their crown.
“It is important to get the win,” he told Chelsea’s official website. “It was an important three points.
“It is still a long way to go and that is why we have to hope Manchester City will slip up and we will manage to put some pressure on them.
“They are there because they deserve it and our job is just to keep going and see what happens at the top.”
“Chelsea are a really good team,” Merino said. “They have pace, they have ability and they are individually one of the strongest teams in the Premier League.
“The way they play is so hard to play against. We started by scoring a goal, but in the end they have pace, ability and they have won the match.”
