Loic Remy: Title race to go to the wire


Chelsea striker Loic Remy believes the English Premier League title race will not be decided until the final day of the season.

Speaking after Saturday's 1-1 draw at home against Manchester City, the 28-year-old said that the Blues had to work hard to cope with the absence of striker Diego Costa and midfielder Cesc Fabregas.

And according to the Frenchman, one point from the game is a positive outcome.

"We wanted to win the game but I think it was a positive result because Manchester City are still five points behind us," Remy told the club's official website.

"It has an impact when you play that type of game [against Liverpool], we tried to save our legs as much as possible but of course you will feel tired.

"I want to help the team as much as possible, score goals and that's what I did. The draw is a good result for us, in the second half we defended properly so I have to congratulate the whole team.

"Without Diego [Costa] and [Cesc] Fabregas it was difficult but the 11 players on the pitch did a great job and tried to be aggressive.

"For me, it was a good opportunity to play, and even more so in that type of game.

"It was a big game, I haven't played much so it was important for me to show the manager and staff they can count on me. I scored but it wasn't enough for us to win the game, I wanted to give the victory to my team-mates.

"This league is really tough so until the last day nothing is really decided. We have to fight in every game, it's going to be difficult.

"Some players are injured but the ones who aren't have to give their best to get results."
