He also spoke about how difficult it is for Chelsea to win the Premier League ahead of Manchester City now or in the future.
The Premier League is the toughest competition to be honest because Manchester City set a very high standard. We have to get to a point where we can go a long marathon.
The Blues are currently 16 points behind league leaders, Manchester City. Chelsea will need to have a flawless season and hope City drop points for them to have any chance at winning the Premier League.
The Club World Champions have a chance of adding another trophy to their cabinet when they play Liverpool in the Carabao Cup final later in February.
