Chelsea defender Gary Cahill is convinced they're back in the title race after their 8-0 thrashing of Aston Villa.

Cahill thinks their 8-0 victory over his former club Aston Villa paired with Manchester United's 1-1 draw with Swansea shows it is possible they could catch the current leaders.

Asked if he felt they could still compete in the title race, he replied: “No doubt. Like you’ve seen today [Manchester United have] slipped a couple of points.

“They are a very strong outfit and have been there many, many times, so it will be tough, but all we can do is try not to drop many points now and with performances like that we won’t go far wrong.

“Obviously it is a big gap but we can only go out and get results.”
