Gary Cahill: Believes that Chelsea are chasing trophies this season

Jose Mourinho has played down his side's chances of lifting trophies this campaign, claiming that it is possible the Blues could win nothing in his return season at Stamford Bridge.

However, the hopes of Mourinho's men remain alive on a number of fronts and Cahill says that is what he and his team-mates are aiming towards.

"The gaffer has touched on that it's a bit of a transitional period," he told the Daily Mirror.

"But at the same time, we have the quality to be competing in the Premier League, FA Cup and Champions League.

"We're in touching distance of the other teams. It's going to be entertaining and will go to the wire, but as long as we stay in there, we're in with a shout.

"Everybody who has a chance of winning the league will want to win it. That's what we're aiming to do, along with some other fantastic teams.

"We know it'll be tough but we have put ourselves in a good position. As long as we can stay in there, the second half of the season will be massive for us."

Cahill also believes that Chelsea have demonstrated their title-winning credentials following the recent 0-0 draw away to Arsenal and the 2-1 Stamford Bridge victory over Liverpool.

"I was reading a lot of negative things about the team leading up to the Arsenal game, but if we had won that game, we would have gone top. We should look at that as a positive," he said.

"When we do click we can expect good things. Beating Liverpool was a massive result because we saw the Arsenal result before and the teams around us on Saturday.

"That put added pressure on us to turn up and win. Thankfully we did.

"Obviously, we're halfway through the season now but certain games, like against Liverpool, can determine whether you win or lose the title. It was important for us to get the win.

"It's massively important to bounce along and keep picking up wins consistently. But for whatever reason, we do tend to get results and put in performances against the big teams this season."

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

Please Stop Telling Us What To Think

H

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

Wenger hails important win

I

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
