Cesar Azpilicueta says in an interview with Sky Sports that they are ready to step up if Man City or Man United fail the wins needed to take the title.
“The two teams can’t both take three points, so every time you get an opportunity to get close, you have to take it,” he told Sky Sports.
“We have to be intelligent to look at ourselves and then we’ll see how the opponents will react.”
“The only target we have is to keep winning points and not drop any,” he said.
“We have to go game by game in this busy period in December – every three days you are fighting for a big three points. We have to look at ourselves. In the last few months you can look at where the opponents are until then we can only look at ourselves.
“We will then see where we are in the final weeks of the season, where we could fight for it.”
