Deco confident of Premier League success

The Blues are currently three points behind Liverpool at the top of the table.

“I know that we have not been 100 per cent in the last few matches and we have missed some chances to be top of the table,” the former Barcelona man said in the Daily Mirror.

“But the most important time to be top is at the end of the season and I believe that this team will finish as champions.

“Scolari has not changed, he is still a strong man and is the same coach as he was at the start of the season when everyone was praising him.

“It’s a long season and it is a big test in England. But I believe we will be champions and show what a good team we are over the season.”
