Morata not giving up title fight

English Premier League

The Blues currently trail the runaway leaders by 16 points after a loss to West Ham and draw against Everton in the month of December.

And despite the mammoth tasking of trying to overhaul the Citizens, Morata insists Chelsea are determined to play every game as if the league title still depends on it.

"It’s difficult, but we’ll do what we can," he told the club's official website.

"It will also be difficult for City to keep winning so many games. What we have to do is to pick up all the points available by winning every game.

"If we win, we can hope that they lose, because that is all we can do."
