Chelsea FC secured safe passage into the next round of the UEFA Champions League, as group winners. ChelseaFC completed the Champions League group stages with a 3-1 win over Sporting Lisbon. Given that the draws of ‘The Round of 16’ would be commenced on Monday, defender Gary Cahill says that no European team want to face Chelsea FC and the top guns of Europe fear them.
“We’re dangerous. I’m sure teams won’t want to come up against us. But there are loads of dangerous teams going into the next round.” said Cahill.
“We’re a good team.We’re certainly playing well.” he added.
Although Chelsea FC’s endeavors in Europe remain commendable, the Blues were handed their first defeat of the Premier League season against Newcastle United, which ended their 14 matches unbeaten streak.
‘”That unbeaten run that lasted so long, where we are in the league this season and how we’re playing – I’m sure people will have taken a lot of notice of that.
Cahill added the importance of Chelsea FC’s 3-1 win over Sporting Lisbon and hailed it as a high point on Chelsea FC’s campaign.
“After the result at the weekend it was important to get that feeling of winning again,”
“It’s unbelievably hard to go through a season without losing a game; everyone realises when you’re in the league it’s so hard to do that.
“Of course you want to keep it going, but no one was really speaking about it.
“We wanted to get positive results and keep that gap. At this stage to be top by three points is really good for us.
Chelsea FC currently sit on top of the Premier League with just a lead of three points over Manchester City. Cahill believes that this slender lead should be capitalized on and focus now is pivotal as Manchester City, would be gunning to win the league, themselves.
“It’s important (to go on another run). It’s important because at the end of the season we want to be top of the league.
“You see how close Manchester City at this moment are to us, even with that unbeaten run. We think about that: how hard we worked to go on that unbeaten run and how well everyone spoke about how we were playing, but yet we’re three points in front with many games to go.
“We believe, because we’re playing well and we look good. We’ve lost one game this season. Of course the belief is there.”
ChelseaFC take on Hull City over the weekend and would be looking to wreak havoc on a Hull side, already running low on form and morale.
