Chelsea centre-back Gary Cahill led the Blues to the win against Liverpool in Los Angeles yesterday night.

He told Chelsea TV: “As soon as he played it and I saw the flight of the ball I thought I was going to get a good contact and from that distance I’d expect to score. I’m pleased to get the first goal,” 

“It’s fantastic to be back. We’ve done a lot of training, fitness work and tactical work and it’s good to put it into practice,”

“It’s a great stadium, the fans have come out today and we’ve enjoyed it. It’s a stepping stone for the season.”

Then about new manager Antonio Conte, the 30-year-old said: “There are some big changes, a different style and it will take time to learn, but that’s why we have pre-season. Now we move on to the next game.”

After a more than disappointing campaign last season with Chelsea, winger Eden Hazard told the British media that he wants to regain the form he had 2-years ago when he seemed unstoppable on the pitch for the Blues.

“I want to be the best, like I was two seasons ago. I said – after the season like this – I wanted to stay at Chelsea because I didn’t want to finish like this.

“We’ve got to show to everybody we are Chelsea, we’re big players, we’re a big team and we didn’t finish in a good place last season. Now we want to do better and win the Premier League. We need to do this.”

The Belgian went on to say that if he was ever to leave Stamford Bridge, he would leave as a champion.

“When I was in France [with Lille], I finished my last game with a hat-trick and that was a good time to leave. And if I must leave one day, I hope I can finish good here and be a champion again.”

Chelsea manager Antonio Conte believes Cesc Fabregas has “no excuse” for being sent off with 20 minutes remaining to play in the friendly against Liverpool.

He said: “In this period sometimes the fatigue it can bring a bit of.. .to go too late in a situation.”

“As I know Fabregas is a good man and not a player to have this situation. I am sorry for him and every Liverpool player.”

“Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp said of Fabregas’ challenge: “It’s a red card, he came by us in the dressing room and said sorry. He came too late in the challenge, of course.”

“Sometimes in life if you are too late you get a red card, especially in football. That’s how it was.”

Chelsea won 1-0 over Liverpool in their first International Champions Cup game, that just ended in Los Angeles, USA.

The winner was scored with a header by Gary Cahill, who was assisted by Cesc Fabregas on a corner, after ten minutes.

The same Spanish midfielder was shown a red card at minute 70 for a late challenge on Ragnar Klavan, but anyway it seemed an harsh decision.

Liverpool had a gol disallowed for offside in the end of the fist half but, anyway, it wasn’t a great game, with few emotions, but Chelsea showed already a good solidness in defense.

The Blues will play Real Madrid in the next game, on Saturday 30 July at Michigan Stadium, with kick off at 8.30 pm BST.
