Salomon Kalou still believes his side can retain their title, despite falling well behind Manchester United in the title race.

Kalou believes that Chelsea’s win over United on Tuesday night has given the team the confidence and impetus needed to close the gap, which is still 12 points, although Chelsea have a game in hand.

With Chelsea looking set for a place in the Champions League quarter finals as well, following their 2-0 away win in Copenhagen, Kalou is confident the club can still challenge for two trophies.

“We have to fight for both competitions, even though, in the Premier League it will be more difficult to win it,” he said.

“But we have to do like we did on Tuesday night, we have to keep believing and take it game by game.

“I think we are showing the good side of Chelsea, because we can’t just fight for one competition, we always fight for every competition.”

This year’s Champions League final will be played at Wembley, which gives Kalou extra incentive to want to get his team there.

“I love playing at Wembley. It is a great stadium, it has an amazing atmosphere and it is a special place for us,” Kalou said.

“Hopefully we can get here for the final because it is our lucky stadium.

“Every time I came to Wembley for a final, we have had a good game and we won.”
