Chelsea defender Gary Cahill is happy after Chelsea secured another win, staying just one point below the leading trio in the Premier League table:
“We were aware of them [Arsenal, Liverpool and Man City winning yesterday],” Cahill told Sky Sports.
“It’s too early to talk about winning the league, but we don’t want the gap to get too big, so this is good.
“That’s where we want to be [at the top], be amongst it. I can’t see anybody running away with it, so we want to be up there.”
Cahill believes the Blues showed character to defeat Saints and that it showed their hard work is paying off since a wake-up call against Arsenal last month.
“We showed another side of ourselves today, a bit of character, we dug in.
“We knew earlier in the season we were letting goals in. [And] we get the rewards by working hard.
“That is the mentality of the players: to dig in. Four wins in the league, four clean sheets, we go on.”
