Chelsea on-field captain Gary Cahill has urged Chelsea to keep the hunger and retain the Premier League title next season.

No team has successfully defended the Premier League title in the last eight years and Cahill has urged the players to become England’s first back-to-back champions since Manchester United in 2009.

“Retaining the trophy next year has to be the goal,” said Cahill.

“I really hope we have learnt the lessons from what happened the last time we tried to do that.

“People talk about the hangover after success. Leicester felt a bit of that this season and we did last year.

“The fact no-one has done it for so long shows how very difficult it is to do. It’s nothing to do with players’ ability, it is to do with frame of mind. We have proved that.

“History has proved it’s very tough to win it back-to-back, but it has to be a target for us next year, 100 per cent. But we have to be right for that.

“You have to keep that hunger and set yourself goals. When you talk about winning it again, you look at the great players over the years who have won championships time and time again, it’s like an addiction.

“You want to have this feeling again and again. There is no better feeling than we had in the dressing room at West Brom, what we will have over the coming days.”
