Cahill: Dust ourselves down and dig in

Chelsea defender Gary Cahill says the Blues need to move on following their disappointing 2-0 defeat at the hands of Manchester United on Sunday.

The Blues were well beaten at Old Trafford and their lead at the top of the premier League standings has been reduced to just four points above Spurs.

"We expected them to start fast and we had to try and control that, and we never did," Cahill told the club's official website.

"We didn’t click. It’s disappointing. We tried to work hard in the second half, tried to push and create, but we were below the standards we’ve set.

"We weren’t at the races and it makes us a bit angry. Let’s hope it’s an off day and it doesn’t cost us too much. We have to react in the right way.

"We have to dust ourselves off and prepare for a huge semi-final, and then we go again with some important home games coming up.

"There’s only six games left, and we are still in a good position. We need to realise it’s not over, we need to realise there are points to play for, and we have to dig in. No-one is going to give us this league, we have to work for it like we have done for the majority of this season.

"We reacted after [defeat to Crystal] Palace, we bounced back with two wins so it’s a similar thing. We have to go again. We are still in a great position."
