Cahill: Fatigue catching up with Chelsea players

Gary Cahill thinks Chelsea's gruelling fixture list is harming their chances of qualifying for the UEFA Champions League. Sunday's 2-0 loss at Manchester City was Chelsea's 46th game of the season.

"Unfortunately, it does take its toll," he told Chelsea TV"I think sometimes a little bit of fatigue plays its part.

"We haven't had a clear week for about 29 weeks and you're expecting to go into games feeling 100 per cent fresh, trying to push on further in all competitions.

"They (Manchester City) had a clear week and we've had a ridiculous amount of games. I think it told, I thought they were a lot fresher and sharper."
