David Luiz has warned his Chelsea team-mates they cannot afford to let up as the race for the Premier League title has not yet been won.
Antonio Conte's men beat Stoke City 2-1 on Saturday to move another step closer to domestic glory and need 21 points from their remaining 10 games to be guaranteed top spot.
"It is still a long way to win the title," the Brazilian told the club's official website. "Nobody makes it easy.
"It is always difficult to play at Stoke. They are a strong and physical team. It was a typical Premier League game, we are happy with the victory.
"We played a good game, kept calm and had the opportunity to score the second goal. We had to believe."
The centre-back has been key to Chelsea's fine form in this campaign following his transfer from Paris Saint-Germain and he is determined to keep pushing in the remainder of the season.
"I try to improve every day. This is my goal," the 29-year-old added.
"Everybody can see my football, the team is doing very well. The results are coming.
"As a defender they do not talk about the good things you do, they talk about the mistakes, so I am trying to play the best football I can to help my team. Sometimes you have to give them more security, defend to get a positive result.
"It is important to understand my role in the team [but] it is not just me, it is Diego Costa, Eden Hazard, everybody. Everybody understands what they need to do."
