Chelsea interim boss Rafael Benitez is confident his side can still take out this season's Premier League title.

The Blues sit third on the table, seven points behind league leaders Manchester United, following Wednesday night's 0-0 home draw with Fulham but Benitez feels there is enough quality in the squad to bring home the title.

"Why can't we? It's still a long way to go. We have to keep going. We'll have chances," said the Spaniard.

"Remember, last season when (Manchester) City were ahead and it was 'easy'. Then they needed to win their last game. It's a long, long competition."

Chelsea will now prepare for the weekend's meeting with 10th-placed West Ham United at Upton Park.
