Chelsea’s brutal defensive midfielder Nemanja Matic has refused to rule out the possibility of the Blues capturing a historic quadruple by the end of the season.
Matic has been lauded for his exceptional display against Stoke City yesterday, which saw him play an integral role as the Stamford Bridge club managed a 2-0 win.
That win has put Chelsea into pole position heading into the festive period, with the Blues leading nearest rivals Manchester City by three points.
Matic has emerged as one of the world’s finest defensive midfielders since his return to Chelsea last January, when they bought him back from Benfica.
His displays this season have been even more exceptional than they were last campaign, and he is believed to have played a huge part as Chelsea have stormed to the top of the table.
While manager Jose Mourinho has refused to discuss the idea of winning all four competitions, Matic is more willing to admit the possibility.
Matic said: “I think it’s possible. We have a chance so it’s possible. I don’t want to say that we’re going to but we’re certainly going to try.
“We have quality but also other teams are strong. I am confident. I believe in my team and my team-mates, so everything is possible.”
