​Matic: Chelsea players not looking at Premier League table

Chelsea defender Nemanja Matic says the club's players are avoiding looking at the current Premier League standings following their dismal start to the campaign.

The Blues sit in 16th place, with just 11 points from their opening 12 matches.

"We are not used to being in this position, but we don't look a lot at the table," Matic said.

"Last season, when we were champions, for the first 10 or 15 games we also did not look at the table - we just tried to take things game by game and collect as many points as possible.

"I think the table is not realistic now because I think Chelsea deserve more. We will try to recover points which we lost up to now."
