Gary Cahill has warned Chelsea FC that they have no time to feel sorry for themselves as they prepare for the FA Cup final clash against Manchester United on Saturday.

The Blues slumped to a disappointing 3-0 loss to Newcastle United in their final game of the Premier League season on Sunday afternoon as they ended up in fifth place in the table.

Their finish outside the top four means that Chelsea FC will have to settle for Europa League football next season instead of making the Champions League.

Chelsea FC will now turn their attentions towards their crunch FA Cup final clash against Manchester United at Wembley on Saturday afternoon.

The Blues are aiming to try and win the trophy as they bid to end the campaign on a high.

And Blues captain Cahill has warned his team-mates that they have no time to feel sorry for themselves as they prepare for their crunch clash against the Red Devils this weekend.

Speaking to Chelsea FC’s website on Sunday, Cahill said: “It’s time to self-reflect. Prior to Huddersfield we were in great form. We have to try and brush it under the carpet.

“That’s not an excuse, any other time I wouldn’t be saying that, but we have a massive week now to prepare for a cup final which is very important for us.”

Chelsea FC won the Premier League title in style last season but they struggled to produce consistent performances this term as they slumped to a disappointing fifth placed finish in the top flight.
