“I said before the game you cannot rule out a team like Chelsea from the title race.
“I mean there are a lot of difficult games for the top teams, but Chelsea will be there, obviously they will have to make another step forward to raise the quality but they will be there.”
Reacting to Chelsea’s goalless draw with Brentford at the Gtech Community Stadium, He added: “Chelsea is a big team and they are close to the top of the table so you may say playing Brentford they need to win, so a draw is not a good result.
“But considering that this Brentford team really is a tough client, I consider this was a good point for Chelsea.”
Meanwhile, Chelsea Manager Graham Potter has expressed his disappointment in Chelsea’s goalless draw with Brentford.
Potter said after the game: “I thought over the course of the game, a point was fair. They had chances, and we had chances. We pushed and pushed at the end. Probably, more likely at the end to score, but at the same time, over the course of the game, a point was about right.
“They make it very difficult for you to control. They do what they do really well. Use the front two, set pieces, long throws, balls into the box, and long balls that make it unstable. I have full respect for them, and how they do that, they do it really well. Not easy. It’s another clean sheet for us. The positives are a clean sheet and a point. That’s four points from two away matches which is positive. When we did control it, we did it quite well, but it’s a point, and we have to move on.”
Brentford manager Thomas Frank also reacted to the draw saying: “The performance we had, especially in the first half, we were by far the better team. Overall we deserve the win, from the 84th minute we were looking a bit tired, but I think we did fantastically.
“Kepa was fantastic. Every time Chelsea comes here, their goalkeeper is a man of the match.”
