Character is key for Cahill as Chelsea chase consistency

The result lifted the defending champions into fourth place, although Manchester City's win over Burnley means they remain nine points adrift of top spot.

His side are already playing catch-up in the title race, as they are nine points behind table-toppers Manchester City after nine games.

"If I was a player I'd look at this manager thinking he's my guru, my Messiah, I want to be with him all the time and no matter what he says or what he makes me do in training, I need to stick to his methods because he's a victor and he's a successful manager". We are in the middle of October and there are loads of games to play. I still think it is open.

'When you're in a hard moment the mood is going to be slightly down because everyone's disappointed, they want to win.

"It's easy to play football when everything is going well and you are winning games back to back, winning, winning - it's the best feeling ever", he said. It's all about character and we showed that.

'You go out and express yourself and feel as though you're not going to make any mistakes. Obviously this moment is one of them, hence why [the Watford] result was good.

"When things are going well, everyone's coming into training, having a lot of banter and joking about and enjoying things - and when you are not, it's not that feeling, because the expectation level is to win".

Sarri's side are now second in Serie A, but if they win their game in hand then they rocket above Inter Milan.

The former Marseille man has developed a knack of scoring important goals following his title-clinching strike at West Brom back in May before a dramatic victor at Atletico Madrid earlier this month.

A 4-2 victory appears to have turned things around and Cahill wants the side to build on that when they face Everton in the Carabao Cup on Wednesday and then Bournemouth in the Premier League at the weekend.
