Gary Cahill: It's far from doom and gloom in terms of the league


Defender Gary Cahill admits the Chelsea players were left frustrated after Sunday's 1-1 draw at home against Southampton.

Diego Costa's 11th minute opened was cancelled out eight minutes later when Dusan Tadic kept his cool to score from the penalty spot.

An improved Chelsea side created more chances in the second half but were denied by a superb Fraser Forster.

But the Englishman is confident Chelsea are still favourites to win the Premier League.

"The second-half performance was the way we want to play, creating and moving the ball around," Cahill told Chelsea's official website.

"In the first half it probably wasn't. We went 1-0 up, we needed that intensity back in our game and it wasn't quite there.

"The second half was pleasing because it was much better. Their goalkeeper was fantastic, it was one of those days where he pulled off saves left, right and centre.

"On another day we win the game, unfortunately we drew but credit to them, they're a great side and they made it tough for us.

"There was a bit frustration after the game because we wanted to win, but I think the next victory is just around the corner.

"It's important for us to get that but it's far from doom and gloom in terms of the league. Man City dropped points on Saturday and we gained one.

"A six-point lead with a game in hand is a good position for us to be in right now, we've got 10 games to go and we'll try to kick on."
