"I think so but again, especially in my position, I will not be able to achieve this without the work of the whole team," he said. "So this well-deserved because of the work of the team that we did all together, because if it was just me then that would not have happened.

"Now we have a lot to play for, which keeps us working hard to try to win trophies, because they are what this club is about."

Chelsea sit top of the Premier League table, one point ahead of Manchester City and travel to Watford on Wednesday night as they look to keep up their fine form.
