Chelsea striker Diego Costa says that his teammates are going to remain calm in the Premier League title race according to the instructions from manager Jose Mourinho. After having won league titles in four different European leagues, Mourinho is considered as one of the masters for winning league titles. His Chelsea team currently have a six-point advantage over Manchester City in the second spot along with a game in hand. This could potentially see them almost 10 points over the nearest competitor with just two months of legal action left.
At the start of the season, Chelsea captain John Terry revealed that the club had made it a priority to win the league title after having not won it since 2009-10. The early Champions League exit at the hands of Paris St Germain appears to have helped the club in this regard, while winning the Capital One Cup by beating Tottenham has also helped them take the pressure. For Manchester City and the chasing pack, the league title remains the only chance of glory this season. After struggling for form in the months of February, Costa is once again back scoring. He has found the back of the net in the last two league matches.
“Our manager has won different leagues and knows how to manage a situation like this.Like the great manager he is, he has told us what we need to do now, which is just to stay calm.He’s right because everything depends on us now. We know that the Premier League is complicated.It’s not easy so we know we have to improve. We all need to dig in and give something extra because we have this title in our hands and we can’t let it slip away,” said Costa, who may miss the match against Stoke City due to a hamstring injury.
