The Blues have the best away record in the league and head into the West London derby against relegation threatened Queens Park Rangers on Sunday having won their last four in a row away from home.

A fifth consecutive victory would put the leaders within touching distance of winning a first title since 2010 and Remy wants that form to continue in their quest to become champions of England once again:

“To win the title in any country you need to pick up results away, it’s not just at home because there you have your fans behind you so it’s perhaps a bit easier.” he told the club’s official website.

“It’s harder to win away from home; if we win on Sunday it will be our fifth in a row which is very good. If we play with confidence and organisation hopefully we will get a positive result.” he added.

The French striker has found the back of the net in each of his last two games for Chelsea, with both turning out to be vital winners against Hull City and Stoke City.

With top-scorer Diego Costa out with a hamstring injury, the 28-year-old could make only his fifth league start against QPR, when he makes his return to Loftus Road for the first time since his summer move away from the relegation threatened side.
