Gary Cahill: Chelsea defender admits they are facing a testing schedule

The 2-2 draw in the FA Cup fourth round clash at Griffin Park means the Blues are facing further fixture congestion at a defining time in their season.

Some of Rafael Benitez's men could potentially play nine times between now and March as they vie to challenge in the Europa League as well as domestically.

Cahill told the Fulham Chronicle: "We needed to dig in and just get the result we needed - obviously we wanted the win - to at least take it back to the Bridge.

"We were sloppy and off the pace. Second half was better and we showed good character."

The 27-year-old admitted the Blues are facing a testing time with upcoming games in the Premier League, FA Cup and Europa League.

He added: "It's not ideal. There are that many games at the moment it feels like you're only just recovering and then there is another game again."

still can't see the Phil Jones thing that some people go on about. Whenever I watch him play it's a repeat of headless chicken meets a gurning Bambi on ice for 90 minutes.

robably the first list I've come across in a long time where I agree with a large majority of what was written. Can't agree with everything though, Zaba has had an awful season by his standards, I'd put Monreal (a player who I've never rated) up there, gotta give credit where it's due, he's really stepped up his game.
