Chelsea’s latest signing Gary Cahill has stated that they must believe in themselves if Chelsea are to claim 4th spot in the league.
Qualification for the Champions League will change the look of a disappointing season for the West London side, with the club still in the later stages of two big cup competitions.
Cahill, has found himself a regular at the heart of the defence ever since interim coach Roberto Di Matteo took over at the club and believes Chelsea can still achieve success this season.
Cahill, 26 said – “We have to be confident. Our form of late’s been good.
“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 a 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.”
During Saturday’s encounter with Spurs, Cahill rescued his side with a superb goal-saving tackle on Emmanuel Adebayor to make amends for an earlier mistake and believes he is now showing Chelsea fans his best form.
“I was disappointed earlier on with my decision to step up,” said the 26-year-old, who had scored in his two previous games.
“So, to rectify that and to get back in, it’s as good as a goal for me. 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.”
