Cahill talks up Chelsea’s chances

Chelsea defender Gary Cahill has talked up his sides chances, as the Stamford Bridge club fight for recognition in three tournaments.

The Blues will face either Tottenham or Bolton in the FA Cup semi-finals, travel to take on Benfica in the Champions League quarter-finals first leg on Tuesday and are still battling for a top four place in the Premier League.

Despite drawing 0-0 with rivals Spurs on Saturday, the England international still believes that his men can finish in the top four.

“We have to be confident. Our form of late has been good,” he confessed to Sky Sports.

“Obviously, we’ve got to win basically the majority of the games we’ve got left and we’ve got some tough games coming up. That’s our target, that’s what we’re aiming for.

“Everyone was saying how bad a season it was. But we we’re in a quarter-final, we’re in a semi-final and we’ve still got a chance to push for that fourth spot.

“So, it’s going to be a massively important period coming up for us, the end of the season,” he stated.

Cahill moved to West London from Bolton in January, and has also stated that he is enjoying life at his new club.

“I’m happy with how things are going at the minute.

“To try to settle in and play straight away to the standards that I expect from myself is tough and it took me a couple of weeks.

“But now, the last few weeks – as hopefully you’ve seen – I’m back to where I should be and I need to maintain that,” he admitted.
