A win against Tottenham tonight will match Arsenal’s Premier League record of 14 straight wins, surpassing the 13 they managed in a single season, and Cahill has revealed that he wants to meet the record.
Speaking to Chelsea TV, Cahill said: “I am bothered about the records. It is not something we have been speaking about, it is not like it is all week we say, ‘We want this record, we want this record,’ but we have just kept going and I think that is the right mentality to have. But being aware of the records and wanting to achieve them, there is nothing wrong with that.
“For sure I want to achieve records. We have achieved the Chelsea one and that is something we should be proud of in itself, and we have the chance to go on and achieve the league record, and every player wants to be part of records. I am not shy about saying that, but at the same time it is not something we speak about in the week.
“We just have to focus on the job we are doing. We are getting this run and this success at the moment from hard work and everyone chipping in with their part in the game. That is the mentality we should have, that should not change.”
