Cahill insists hard work is just beginning for Chelsea after Champions League first-leg

Chelsea defender Gary Cahill has insisted the team will not get carried away by their first-leg victory over Barcelona in the Champions League semi-final, the Daily Mail has reported, with the England international adding he is well aware of the difficulty of playing the Spanish side at the Nou Camp.



Cahill also praised interim manager Roberto Di Matteo for laying out the game plan to get a positive result against Barcelona, but acknowledged that the contest is only half way through. Cahill said: “The gaffer gave us a game plan before the game and we stuck to it. It worked really well, but it's half-time and it's going to be really hard over there but it's a good start for us.


The former Bolton Wanderers defender replaced the injured David Luiz to partner John Terry in central defence in only his third Champions League appearance since moving to Stamford Bridge in January. Previously Cahill has played in an away defeat to Napoli and a home victory over Benfica before contributing to Wednesday’s resolute triumph over the Champions League holders. Cahill was a £7m signing by former Chelsea boss Andre Villas-Boas.
