Cahill confident of title bid
Chelsea defender Gary Cahill believes the club will challenge for the Premier League title next season.
The London club won the Champions League and FA Cup last season but their performance in the league was relatively disappointing. The Blues were never really in the title hunt, with their poor form leading to boss Andre Villas-Boas' sacking in February. New manager Roberto Di Matteo steadied the ship, but they still finished 25 points behind champions Manchester City. Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich has once again dipped into his pockets to allow Di Matteo to strengthen the squad over the summer, with Eden Hazard and Marko Marin signing in at the Bridge to date. Cahill, who joined from Bolton in January, is confident the club will finish higher in the league this campaign and push the two Manchester clubs all the way in the Premier League title race. "The most important thing is to improve upon that [last season]" Cahill told Sky Sports. "When you look at the previous however many years, they were always finishing first or second. "I'm pretty new to the set-up here, but we're definitely going to look to improve as we should be. "The squad we've got here is fantastic. Obviously with the new faces coming in, we are definitely looking to improve and push for the league." Chelsea's spending showing no sign of ending, with Brazilian wonderkid Oscar linked with a £25million move to west London. With spending like that, punters may want to use their free bet on backing the Blues to bring the Premier League title back to the Bridge next May.
