Mason Mount has called on Chelsea to push for the Premier League title this season, after a run of five wins in a row sees the club just two points away from top spot.
The most recent win over Newcastle saw Chelsea briefly go top of the table , but rivals Tottenham and Liverpool leapfrogged the Blues again to leave them in third.
After Tuesday’s away Champions League clash with Rennes, Mount’s side will welcome Spurs to Stamford Bridge on Sunday.
The 21-year-old says that his side are aiming to achieve glory this season in the league, and not settle for just a brief good spell domestically and in Europe.
“It’s always been our goal [to win the title],” Mount said in a pre-match press conference. “We know what we can achieve, and we know the level of the players in this group.
“We can never be content with being top of the group in the Champions League and going to the top of the league and being around it; we can never be content with that. We know what we can do and our goal is always to be No 1 and push for titles. We know we can do that.
“The most important thing at the moment is to try to keep the momentum going. Go from game to game and try to go into each one with the mentality of winning it. When you keep that going, you go into every game wanting to win.
“We are in a good place at the moment but we can’t get carried away. It is exciting times, but we’re so ready to keep working hard.”
