PETR Cech has warned Manchester United that Chelsea will fight them for the Premier League title until the bitter end.
With just five games to go in this year’s Premiership campaign, the Blues have moved into second spot with the gap between them and United narrowing to see six points.
"You can see how everything can go fast this season," said Cech of Chelsea’s topsy-turvy year.
"Two weeks ago the situation looked one way, last week another way and now a few days on everything looks different again.
"We have another two games at home which will be massive for us. We need to keep winning to maintain the pressure on everybody."
A week ago, United dumped Chelsea out of the Champions League. Since then Chelsea have claimed six league points against potentially tricky Midlands opposition, while United have been knocked out of the FA Cup and struggled to a draw at Newcastle in the league.
"You can’t win everything in a season," insisted goalkeeper Cech.
"It’s important we score goals. It now seems like the beginning of the season again - when we get chances we convert them.
"We got three against West Brom and another three [against Birmingham]. This is the way to win games because nobody seems to want to win the title and everybody is dropping points, so goal difference will play a big part now."
As things stand if Chelsea and Arsenal were to win all their games, the season could end on a three-way 79-point tie between them and United.
Cech backed boss Carlo Ancelotti, saying: "There was pressure all around but nobody panicked at the club. The manager stayed even though he was under a lot of pressure a few weeks ago. You can now see the season is still on and is not completely lost. We have to fight to the last moment."
