Chelsea boss Carlo Ancelotti has declared they'll win the Premiership this season.
Chelsea were forced to grind out wins over Liverpool and Manchester United at Stamford Bridge, but were far too good for a disappointing Arsenal side, who now trail the pace-setters by 11 points.
Ancelotti refused to rule Arsenal out of title contention, as he did with Liverpool, but the manager's belief in his own team is unshakeable.
"I believe we will win the title," Ancelotti said. "When I signed a contract with Chelsea I believed we'd win something. We started the season believing that we could win. Our objective is to stay in all the competitions until the end of the season and then, if we can win, we will try to do that.
"I prefer to think that they can stay on top of the table, top of the list. It's not so important for me if Arsenal can return to first position. For me it's just important that Chelsea continue to play like today, with determination and with concentration."
