England international Gary Cahill has issued a good old fashioned rallying cry to his Chelsea teammates to keep their foot on the accelerator from now till the end of the season, and finish it strongly so that the Blues can ensure their presence in the Champions League next season, and perhaps also end a long campaign with a trophy.
Cahill, speaking to the club’s official website urged his teammates to follow the example of last season where a strong finish saw them finish with a Champions League and FA Cup double, and believes Chelsea have the depth in squad to be able to compete on two fronts again this year. At this time of the year it is all about getting the Ws, and it doesn’t really matter how one does it.
Cahill said, “We’re in a good position but it’s dangerous because we’ve got some great teams coming up in Spurs, Manchester United and Everton, who people tend to forget about but they’re not far away.
Chelsea are currently in third place in the Premier League standings, and can pull away from the chasing pack if they win their game in hand against Spurs.
