Cahill Confident Of Success

Chelsea’s Gary Cahill believes that following his side’s performances against Arsenal and Liverpool, his side can go on to lift the league title.

Chelsea currently find themselves in third place, two points behind league leaders Arsenal and a point behind Manchester City.

Chelsea held Arsenal to a 0-0 draw on December 23rd and then beat Liverpool  2-1 this past Sunday, which according to Cahill has given his side the belief that they can lift silverware this season.

“I was reading a lot of negative things about the team leading up to the Arsenal game, but if we had won that game, we would have gone top. We should look at that as a positive,” said Cahill.

“When we do click we can expect good things. Beating Liverpool was a massive result because we saw the Arsenal result before and the teams around us on Saturday.

“That put added pressure on us to turn up and win. Thankfully we did.

“Obviously, we're halfway through the season now, but certain games, like against Liverpool, can determine whether you win or lose the title. It was important for us to get the win.

“It's massively important to bounce along and keep picking up wins consistently. But for whatever reason, we do tend to get results and put in performances against the big teams this season.

“The gaffer has touched on that it's a bit of a transitional period,” said Cahill.

“But at the same time, we have the quality to be competing in the Premier League, FA Cup and Champions League.

“We're in touching distance of the other teams. It's going to be entertaining and will go to the wire, but as long as we stay in there, we're in with a shout.

“Everybody who has a chance of winning the league will want to win it. That's what we're aiming to do, along with some other fantastic teams.

“We know it'll be tough, but we have put ourselves in a good position. As long as we can stay in there, the second half of the season will be massive for us.”

Chelsea are up against Southampton away from home in their next league match on New Year’s Day.
