The Chelsea defender Gary Cahill has said that he thinks that maintaining the momentum that the team has built in recent matches is extremely key if they are to come anywhere close to winning the title this season.
Chelsea have already fallen many points behind the leaders Manchester United, but they have made up ground on the second placed Manchester City in recent weeks. They are just four points behind the Premier league champions and with a game to play. The team recently managed its fourth consecutive league victory after a long time. This helped them move into the third position in the table.
The club has also conceded just two goals in the last four matches in the league. Chelsea managed their first victory at Everton since 2008 during the weekend. The 2-1 victory came courtesy of two goals from Frank Lampard after the Merseyside club had taken the lead early in the match. Gary Cahill has been one of the regular first-team players since the arrival of the Spaniard Rafa Benitez. He was once again at the heart of the Chelsea defence that managed to prevent Everton from increasing their advantage in the first half, which proved to be vital in the entire course of the match.
"We need to keep looking forward and have that challenge in the back of our head. We would rather have the points in the bag, but that’s another challenge we have got to face. There are plenty of games coming up. I think we have good momentum. We have changed the team around slightly, the lads are playing well. We just need to keep winning games. That’s the way we look at it," said Gary Cahill, who has already made 14 appearances for the team this season. He has two goals to his name.
