Chelsea’s Gary Cahill wary of ‘fantastic’ Arsenal in title race

Chelsea's Gary Cahill is wary of the threat posed by Arsenal in the Premier League title race

Gary Cahill has warned Chelsea that they can ill afford any slip-ups in the closing stages of the Premier League season following Arsenal’s recent impressive form.

The Gunners moved up to second place in the Premier League table last weekend thanks to a thumping 4-1 win over Liverpool at Emirates Stadium.

The impressive victory over the Reds left the north London side seven points behind leaders Chelsea heading into the final seven games of the season.

And Chelsea defender Cahill has been impressed by what he has seen from Arsene Wenger’s men in recent weeks.

“I think it’s gone under the Radar, hasn’t it? I think how well they’ve done of late – they’ve crept up,” Cahill is quoted as saying by Get West London.

“We started (against Stoke) today with them in second position. They’ve gone about it quietly, they’re obviously in fantastic form.”

Arsenal travel to Burnley on Saturday afternoon before Chelsea take on Queens Park Rangers at Loftus Road on Sunday.

The Blues beat Stoke City 2-1 at Stamford Bridge in their most recent top-flight outing.

Arsenal host Chelsea at Emirates Stadium in the Premier League on Sunday 26 April.
