Atletico Madrid are top of the La Liga and they are the favorite to win the title.
captain Koke has stressed that they are not affected by the rumors about their possibility of winning La Liga.
RojiBlancos are currently top of the La Liga table with 26 points from 11 games. Their most recent defeat to Real Madrid was their first defeat in La Liga this season, with Simeone leading the way with two games less than their rivals. There has been talking of a high chance of winning current season's title, but Koke believes he and his team-mates are not affected by the talk.
Koke told Marca:
“You already know our idea. What we talk about in the dressing room will stay there and we will continue with the same idea of going day by day. We have an important game against Elche and we want to win it to stay on top.
“We are having a great season with only one game lost. The team wants to continue the streak. In the derby we had a setback that hurt us a lot because we were going into it with high hopes, but it was not our day.
“There are three points available in each game and we have to continue doing the work that we have been doing and that we are not distracted by anything other than our ‘game by game’ mantra.”
