Chelsea midfielder Fabregas insists the title race is still wide open
Chelsea midfielder Cesc Fabregas insists the race for the Premier League title is still wide open despite the club's unbeaten run of form.
A 2-0 victory against West Brom on Saturday saw the Blues extend their lead at the top to seven points with second place Southampton due to face Aston Villa on Monday night.
Jose Mourinho earlier played down suggestions that his side are guaranteed the title and Fabregas, who picked up a 10th league assist of the season against the Baggies, echoed his manager's thoughts.
"We know it is a long way to go," he told the club's official website.
"We don't look at all the comments from TV, press or fans because if you start looking at it now, everyone will think that Chelsea has already won the title and it is not like that.
"We are professionals and some of us have been playing these type of competitions for a very long time and we have only played a few games really [this season].
"It is a long way to go and we still have to do better than that."
Chelsea's unbeaten start to the season is a new club record in the top-flight but, as parallels begin to be drawn with Arsenal's 'Invincibles' a decade ago, Fabregas has resisted the temptation for comparison.
"I don't compare us with any other big sides because we haven't won anything," he insisted.
"This is just the beginning. Everyone is talking well about Chelsea now, how great we are and then you lose two games they will talk about how bad we are.
