Cech: It's a three-horse title race

Miguel Delaney

Chelsea goalkeeper Petr Cech feels that this season's Premier League title race will only be between the Blues, Manchester United and Manchester City.

Despite his team dropping points for the third game in a row after only drawing 1-1 with Liverpool on Sunday despite dominating the game, Cech feels Chelsea remain on course.

"We lost some points, they [United and City] did at the start of the season. So, it looks like we'll be the three teams that chase the title," Cech said. "It looks like [it will be a three-horse race], because they have been focused on getting points.

"But let's not forget the others, because any game is difficult and you can drop points against any teams."

Cech did, however, lament Chelsea's failure to get all three points against Liverpool, saying: "It was exactly the game which shows how difficult the Premier League is when you don't kill a game off.

"We had complete control for 70 minutes and had so many chances you would think it is just a matter of time until we score a second or third, but unfortunately we didn't and allowed them to be alive, and then they came back into the game.

"The goal helped them and it opened the game, and in the end they could have won but we should have won the game."
