Jose Mourinho has again insisted there has been no shift in the dynamics of the title race, in spite of the win at Man City.
But he says the fact the top four have created a bit of a gap is a big help.
The Blues take on Newcastle United hoping to build on Monday's 1-0 win and nothing more, according to the Chelsea boss.
"When we lost two points against West Ham, people said we didn't have the attacking power to win every match to win the Premier League," Mourinho said.
"So just because we won against Man City, now people are changing their opinion, but I know where we are - that we are good, working well, but going step by step.
“We are still third. We're playing our league against ourselves to try to improve.
"We are not a squad like Man City with every player in the best moment of their careers in their age and stability – all of them working together for a long time with a manager that arrived with a team there ready for him.
“Arsenal is the biggest example of stability – of a manager working with players year after year.. He's been working with those guys since they were really young players.
“We are different, we are beginning. Do we dream to win the Premier League? Of course. If we don't, we don't play.
"If we have the chance to win we are not going to say we don't want. But we don't have the same responsibilities, that's for sure.
"We just want to win the next game against Newcastle and be there.”
Mourinho added: “The good thing is that we can feel now a little bit of a space after Liverpool in fourth and the other ones.
“The big objective for all of us is to finish top four, if possible top three, with direct qualification to the Champions League.
“The gap after Liverpool is good because it gives us some stability and when you have that stability, you feel better to play and to enjoy and to try to get results that allow us to stay at the top of the league.
“I said that even after a bad result against West Ham, that the team was playing well.
"Before the Man City game, I also said it was more important for us to play really well and to show the direction we want to go, than to get the result. But we did both things at the same time.”
