Cahill warns Chelsea they must not suffer Christmas stumble

Chelsea defender Gary Cahill says they cannot afford to stumble over the Christmas period.

Monday night's 2-0 victory at Stoke ensured Chelsea will be top of the Premier League on Christmas Day.

"We knew we needed a reaction after the Newcastle game and with Man City playing so well, getting results and breathing down our necks we know we have to keep our foot down," the centre-back, 29, told the club's official website.

"It's fantastic to be top of the league at this stage but we know there's plenty of hard work to come, we'll enjoy our Christmas though."
