The Serbian believes the Blues must quickly get back on track, as they will be dubbed failures if they fail to win the top flight title. Matic’s men are already five points clear, and still have two game’s in hand after Manchester City lost to Burnley yesterday.
Matic, who was quoted by the Daily Mail, said: “To be honest we didn’t play well against Paris Saint-Germain. We played against one very good team with very good individuals but after the Ibrahimovic red card maybe we thought it would be more — not easy — but easier for us as we had one player more.
“If you watched the whole game they deserved to go through. Now, we must win the Premier League. We have to if we want to finish this as a good season. If we win the league we will have that and the Capital One Cup and it will be a good season. Otherwise it is going to be bad.
“I know it is going to be difficult until the end. But Manchester City also play difficult games. If we win the Premier League it’s going to be like a dream for us, because we know what we speak about every day and we know the Premier League is something we have to win. We are not tired and we will be ready for the next 12 games.”
