Gary Cahill has warned his Chelsea FC team-mates about a resurgent Huddersfield Town ahead of their meeting at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday night.

The Blues looked unlikely to finish in the Premier League’s top four a couple of months ago after a disastrous start to 2018 under Antonio Conte.

However, Chelsea FC have won their last four Premier League games to keep their slim hopes of qualifying for next season’s Champions League alive.

The Blues were 1-0 winners against third-placed Liverpool FC at Stamford Bridge on Sunday thanks to Olivier Giroud’s first-half winner.

Huddersfield managed to secure a point from a goalless draw with Premier League champions Manchester City at The Etihad.

Chelsea FC are in fifth spot and three points adrift of third-placed Liverpool FC but the Blues have played one game less than the Reds.

The west London side are two points behind Tottenham Hotspur, who will welcome Newcastle United to Wembley mid-week.

Speaking to Chelsea FC’s website about the visit of Huddersfield on Wednesday night, Blues defender Cahill isn’t underestimating David Wagner’s side.

“We need to just keep winning the games and to see where that takes us and see what happens at the end of the season,” Cahill said.

“The first is against Huddersfield, who did brilliantly at Manchester City, not many teams have gone there and got a point this season, so they will be in high spirits from that vital point for them. I’m sure they will come here on Wednesday and try to do the same.”

Chelsea FC will take on bitter rivals Manchester United in the FA Cup final at Wembley later this month.

The Blues lost 4-1 to FC Barcelona in the Champions League round of 16.
