London: Goalkeeper Petr Cech believes Chelsea are now Manchester United``s main Premier League title rivals because Arsenal have thrown away too many chances to catch them.

Cech believes Chelsea``s are well placed to take advantage if United falter during the final month of the season.

"We``ve been saying for a long time we want to keep winning and maintain the pressure on everybody. Arsenal have difficult games and United have to play us and Arsenal so there could possibly be six points [dropped by them,” The Guardian quoted Cech, as saying.

He added: "We have two games at home against West Ham and Spurs to come and, if we win both, the situation could change again. Chelsea were one of the worst [teams in the form guide] a few months ago and now we’re getting back to normal."
