Chelsea captain Gary Cahill has told the club’s official website that he and his teammates need to build a run of good results, as the intense winter period approaches.
The Blues showed character on Saturday by coming from behind to defeat Watford 4-2 after facing scrutiny from the home supporters for much of the game due to a disappointing performance.

Blues skipper Cahill spoke of the team’s character on Saturday, saying: “When you’re in a difficult moment the mood is going to be slightly down because everyone’s disappointed, they want to win. But that’s not just the case here, or with this team, I would guess it’s the same at every other big club.”
He also spoke of the importance of finding ‘consistency’, while admitting that it was a relief to earn all three points agains the Hornets after a difficult period.
“I spoke in my programme notes about getting the consistency. If we get some games won back to back, all of a sudden it lifts, but we went into the Watford game off the back of two defeats and you kind of feel the weight. It’s all about character and we showed that,” he added.
Chelsea have made a mixed start to the season, losing three of their opening nine league games. However, Antonio Conte’s side have started well in Europe with two wins from three, and will look to take their cup form into the Carabao Cup when they host managerless Everton on Wednesday.
