Eto'o urges Chelsea teammates to stay calm over title tilt

Chelsea striker Samuel Eto'o has urged teammates not to put pressure on themselves.

Chelsea lead the table after victory over Newcastle United.

"It's been a great week but there are still 13 matches of the season to go. We need to look to get all these points and hope that we are the first," Eto'o told chelseafc.com.

"We are one of the competitors and if the occasion presents itself we must try to take advantage of it. We are top now and we are going to try to finish at the top, but it's not our obsession. If we finish second it will have been a very good season.

"Chelsea have always been strong. We are one of the best teams in England and we are always trying to be top. That is serving us well right now. I'm not going to hide, if the chance to finish first is there we will look for this first place."
