Gary Cahill has admitted that he has been disappointed by Chelsea FC’s form in the Premier League this season.

The Blues have not been able to produce consistent displays in the top flight this term under Antonio Conte as their stuttering form left them outside of the top four places in the table.

Chelsea FC were the Premier League’s top performing team last season and they won the title in style in Conte’s first campaign in charge of the west London side.

However, they have struggled to produce consistent form in the top flight this term and that has left them way off the pace in the race for the title.

Chelsea FC are still aiming to win the FA Cup this season and they will take on Manchester United in the final at Wembley later this month.

However, Cahill has admitted that the way the season has panned out for Chelsea FC has not been according to plan.

Speaking in an interview with Sky Sports before Chelsea FC’s home clash with Liverpool FC on Sunday, Cahill said: “When you look over the games we’ve lost this season, in some ways we have ourselves to blame.

“I’m not being disrespectful when I say that, but in terms of the games we have lost it has been disappointing for us. If we turn two or three of them into wins then we’re not in this situation.

“I suppose that’s obvious and we are where we are.

“We have a cup final to look forward to, which is great, but in terms of the league, it could have been better. This season has definitely been a different season and a strange season.”

Chelsea FC are bound to be linked with a host of players during the summer transfer window as they look to strengthen their squad ahead of next season.
