Cahill admits Chelsea "unconvincing"

Chelsea defender Gary Cahill refused to paper over a disappointing week.

Being held at home by Southampton yesterday came just days after their Champions League elimination by PSG.

Chelsea remain strong favourites to claim the crown in May, but Cahill admits they must lift the mood at the club.

He said: "Perhaps desperate is the wrong word, but we are looking for the next convincing win to get us back up and running.

"I have noticed playing for this club that the expectations are so high. We went out of the Champions League the other night, but we drew, we didn't actually lose the game.

"All of a sudden everyone is asking 'what's happening here?' As players we have to focus on the job in hand and that's the Premier League.

"There is a massive opportunity for us this season, everyone knows that. There are 10 games left to go now and we are in a fantastic position.

"We need to bear that in mind and we should be going out there playing with freedom and not feeling pressure.

"We should be going out and enjoying it. That comes with winning games and I'm sure the next win is just around the corner for us."
