Chelsea manager Rafael Benitez suggests his side is still capable of winning the Premier League title.

The Blues sit third on the table, 11 points in arrears of league leaders Manchester United, following Sunday's 8-0 drubbing of Aston Villa and Benitez is refusing to throw in the Premiership towel.

"We will see after two or three more games," he said in regards to bridging the gap on United and reigning champions Manchester City who sit second.

"You could see the team had confidence in themselves, they believed, and that was there to the end.

"They had good movements, created chances. Now we have to sustain this run and it will be easier for me to say we can compete."

Chelsea next meets 10th-placed Norwich City at Carrow Road on Boxing Day.
