Cahill: At Chelsea to win trophies

The Blues face the CONCACAF champions in Thursday's semi-final after the Mexican side overcame Korea's Ulsan Hyundai 3-1 in their quarter-final clash.

Chelsea have been in Japan for four days and Cahill said: "We've travelled all this way and we now want to win it.

"When I came to Chelsea, I came to win trophies.

"This is a big opportunity to do that. It's a fantastic competition and one that doesn't come around very often.

"It's hard to get into this competition in the first place. We've got some Brazilians in our squad and it's absolutely huge for them.

"It's sunk in how big it is, and we want to do well in it now."

Chelsea arrived in Yokohama after back-to-back victories under Rafael Benitez and Cahill said the interim manager was beginning to get his ideas across to the squad.

"Defensively, as a team, we've tightened up which has given us a platform to build from," he said.

"It was hard for him to get all his points across at first because he was playing games every couple of days, but now the lads are fully aware of what strategy he's come up with and what's expected of them.

"It's working well at the minute."

terling needs to be told though that upon entering the Arsenal squad he will re-enact the final scene from Highlander where he will be thrown around a warehouse by cartoon dragons and then be a mere mortal that will only ever spend three to four weeks a season playing football and the rest on the physio's bed. There can be only one.....player available at The Emirates.

Arsenal interest in Sterling

he game changed in our favour when Carrick came on. We were able to play further up the pitch due to having a player who can give and go with the ball and keep possession. Yet barkley made some runs and Townsend scored a good goal but carrick's inclusion and chiellini's withdrawal made the biggest difference to the flow of the game

o, you've not silenced anyone Andros, i'm afraid. We know you can score a great goal, and it's really handy to have your direct running and willingness to shoot on the bench. But until you can do the other things expected of a winger (beat the man, put a decent cross in, stay wide etc) then you can't expect more than a regular cameo. Wonderful goal though, what a hit! No wonder Buffon wanted the shirt.
