Sturridge maintains his title dream

Chelsea's in form striker Daniel Strurridge believes his side are still in the hunt for the Premier League title this season, despite dropping points over the weekend.

The Blues looked set to record another victory in the top flight on Saturday against Wigan Athletic but with two minutes of normal time remaining an uncharacteristic fumble from goalkeeper Petr Cech allowed Jordi Gomez to bag a late equaliser. People gambling on football will remember how poor it was.

With Premier League frontrunners Manchester City battling for a 1-0 victory over Arsenal at the Etihad Stadium on Sunday, Chelsea now find themselves nine points off the pace.

Having beaten City in their previous outing, it was crucial the west London outfit maintained the pressure on the league leaders but Chelsea succumbed to the banana skin at the DW Stadium.

Despite the setback against the Latics Sturridge, who has taken the role as one of Chelsea's first choice strikers, believes the Stamford Bridge club can still challenge for the all-important Premier League title this term. People looking at the football predictions should bear this in mind.

The 22-year-old told the club's website: "It is frustrating for everyone and it is important that we bounce back, which we will.

"It is the best league in the world because every team in the top six can win it. We are one of them and I believe we can.

"There are still five months to go and I think people would be stupid to assume Chelsea are out of the title race. We are going to fight to the very last game."
