Gary Cahill is convinced Chelsea have what it takes to win the Premier League this season.

The Blues stumbled to a sixth-place finish in the English top flight last term and only booked their place in this season’s Champions League as a result of Roberto Di Matteo’s men lifting the trophy in May.

Chelsea are currently second in the table after having succumbed to their first defeat of the season – by Manchester United last weekend – but Cahill is backing the west Londoners to continue their positive start to the campaign by launching a serious title assault.

“We’ve got new lads, like me, who have not been scarred by that history [of slipping up after a good start],” Cahill told the Guardian. “And I don’t think anyone could argue we don’t have a squad capable of winning the Premier League.

“When we set out in the summer, we wanted to improve on our league position. Sixth wasn’t good enough.

“We weren’t where we wanted to be when I came in last January and, at the end of the season, we weren’t where the lads expected to be. So we needed to improve and our start suggests we are.

“We’ve got a blend – the class and experience of some of the older guys, and younger lads who are established already.

“These are exciting times but the expectation level is still massive. I’ve had an amazing time here so far but I’m hungry for more. We all want to push on.”
