Gary Cahill will captain Chelsea on the pitch again tonight at White Hart Lane.
The Blues centre-back revealed how Antonio Conte‘s side prepared the crucial derby against Spurs:
“There is no reason why we as a squad and the manager and the staff should not feel confident going into the game.
“We are on a terrific run but we realise it is a game everyone is going to be speaking about, nothing changes there. It is a big game, we know what it is about, we have played in them before and we are looking for the same mentality.
“It is not because it is Tottenham that anything is going to change in our preparation, or the way we go about things. It is exactly the same and we expect the same from each player come kick-off time, and we will be okay.”
“I am bothered about the records,” the centre-back added.
“It is not something we have been speaking about, it is not like it is all week we say, ‘We want this record, we want this record,’ but we have just kept going and I think that is the right mentality to have.
“But being aware of the records and wanting to achieve them, there is nothing wrong with that.
“For sure I want to achieve records. We have achieved the Chelsea one and that is something we should be proud of in itself, and we have the chance to go on and achieve the league record, and every player wants to be part of records.
“I am not shy about saying that, but at the same time it is not something we speak about in the week.”
