Chelsea’s Ramires warns his team-mates against complacencyRamires has appeared for Chelsea 39 times in all competitions this season -
The Brazilian midfielder starred in the Blues’ 4-0 drubbing of Tottenham Hotspur in the Premier League on Sunday and the 26-year-old is urging his team-mates to keep up the good work.
Chelsea are now nine points ahead of fellow title contenders Manchester City who have three games in hand and a more impressive goal difference.
Such is the closeness of the race for the Premier League title, Ramires acknowledges that he and his team-mates have little margin for error.
"Manchester City have games in hand and a lot can happen," he told Globo Esporte.
"We have to keep focusing on a game at a time, we can't fall into the trap of thinking that everything is okay."
"Any slip-up could be fatal at this point in the league."
"The fans at Stamford Bridge have been our 12th player, they are creating an atmosphere which really helps our team."
"It's hard not to be excited right now but there is still a lot to be done before we can talk about the title," completed the player.
