Gary Cahill reveals what it felt like to produce that sublime flick


Chelsea defender Gary Cahill says his flick for Branislav Ivanovic's goal against Paris Saint-Germain was a "little bit instinctive".

The Serbia international kept his cool to head in the opening goal after a move that saw three Chelsea defenders combining to give their side the lead.

And Cahill was delighted to see his team-mate score yet another important goal this season.

"It was a little bit instinctive," Cahill told the club's official website.

"I knew Iva [Branislav Ivanovic] was there on the right-hand side of me because we went up together.

"Iva's been good for a goal lately! It was a crazy moment in terms of all three of us being in the box and not many others. It was a great goal and a great start for us.

"I feel like we had some good possession in the first half.

"What maybe could have been better was the second half. We could have had more of a foothold in the game but they made it very difficult for us.

"We came here last season and we knew it was going to be hard. They had some good attacking moments, which we expected because they're a class team, but we go away with a good result to take to Stamford Bridge.

"We'll go in to that game [at home] with the away goal but mentally it's level pegging.

"It's one game and in football anything can happen.

"We have done the hard bit in the away leg and I'm sure there are more hard things to come but I would rather play the crucial second leg at Stamford Bridge."
