John Terry says now is the time to give Chelsea the respect they deserve as they stand one win away from being crowned Premier League champions.
The Blues captain scored as they came from behind to beat Leicester City 3-1.
He says they deserve credit after being taunted as “boring” by Arsenal fans.
Terry, 34, said: “We’ve been the best side all season. We deserve a lot of respect. We’ve been very good all season so let’s hope we win it on Sunday.”
The title will be confirmed if the Blues beat Crystal Palace at Stamford Bridge on Sunday (13:30 BST kick-off).
Second-placed Manchester City, 13 points behind, cannot overhaul Chelsea but third-placed Arsenal, on the same points total as City, could theoretically overhaul them as they have a game in hand.
Victory on Sunday would give manager Jose Mourinho his third Premier League triumph with the club, and the first since he returned to the club for a second spell in charge.
The Blues last won the title in 2009-10 when Carlo Ancelotti was manager.
Leicester led at half-time but Didier Drogba equalised early in the second half before Terry and Ramires secured the victory.
“We don’t get enough credit,” said striker Drogba, 37. “We are top of the league, we have the most points and people find us boring because we have been top since day one.”
