Gary Cahill is confident Chelsea have what it takes to finish in the top four this season ahead of a difficult run of fixtures.

Cahill, who made his return from six weeks out through injury in Sunday's 2-0 home win over Swansea City, is expecting another good run of form at the business end of the season.

"Last season was a strong finish and I hope we can do the same this year," he told the club's official website. "We know what we have to do between now and the end of the season and we have to start by putting in performances like we did against Swansea and getting the wins."

Chelsea are currently third in the Premier League, one point ahead of Arsenal and have a game in hand over their London rivals. The Blues are also three points in front of fifth-placed Tottenham.

"We're in a good position but it's dangerous because we've got some great teams coming up in Spurs, Manchester United and Everton, who people tend to forget about but they're not far away," Cahill added.

"Obviously we've got the cup [Europa League] as well so it needs a big push from the players over an important few games.

"It's what the lads have come to expect at this club. It's nothing different to what we're used to and the demands that are on us. It is in our hands, it will be difficult because we're up against some good teams but we're in a good position at this moment in time."
