Chelsea striker Salomon Kalou has claimed that Manchester United are their biggest rivals for the title this season.

“If we can be at least five points ahead of Manchester United by the festive period it will be a good step towards the title,” said Kalou. “The goal is to be even further ahead by Christmas. There will be other teams challenging but we will see United as our main rivals.”
