The Blues are currently four points clear at the top of the league, and eight points ahead of title rivals Manchester City. This is after an unbelievable start to the season where they have gone unbeaten in their first eleven matches.
However, the Sky Blues’ summer signing believes that Jose Mourinho’s men will go through tough times before the end, and that City are perfectly ready to make use of any stumbles when they occur.
The Brazilian refuses to panic despite manager Manuel Pellegrini coming under pressure after a stuttering start to the Premier League, and a dreadful campaign in the Champions League.
“Of course Chelsea is the team that is best placed and playing better, but we know that all teams within the league fluctuate greatly,” he began.
“We did not start well, we had some difficulties, but we know that at any time Chelsea will also go through these difficulties and then we have to work to stay as close as possible.”
The 27-year-old claims that they still have a chance in both competitions, but that the poor European campaign is troubling the side.
“What has hampered the most is not the Premier League, the Champions League is where we are wrong. We still have chances in all competitions and so we have to work to go around,” he said.
Last season’s champions are actually two points and five places better off at the moment than they were at the same time last year.
