##Chelsea Football Club are going into their potentially Premier League winning match against West Brom on Friday night with a positive mindset said defender #Gary Cahill.

Having comfortably beaten Middlesborough 3-0 and relegating the Teesiders on Monday, Chelsea now need just three points from their remaining three games to guarantee their second title in three seasons.

Nemanja Matic, who scored his first goal at Stamford Bridge, as well as Diego Costa and Marcos Alonso, were all on target for Chelsea in the Boro match. Watford and Sunderland are the last two opponents for Antonio Conte’s side.

The Chelsea centre-back said on the club’s website that the team’s morale during training was good after Tottenham Hotspur’s result against West Ham.

Tottenham, currently seven points adrift, have a tough road in chasing Chelsea.

Every Chelsea player went out and had a good time together with the pressure a little bit off, although the players were well aware that being relaxed too much and taking things lightly can be bad at times, said the 31-year-old Cahill, adding the team created chance after chance against Steve Agnew’s side.

Having to win one out of three games could be unnerving but Chelsea have every reason to be confident with the way they are playing, Cahill further said, saying the team will work and prepare for the games the same way as before. He stated that everyone wants the win more than anything else and the players and staff are looking forward to their most important game.

England international Cahill also said he is aware of the difficult game against the Hawthorns but the Blues are looking towards getting the job done and the players need to be aware of the situation.

Run-in always the same

Having successfully navigated the run-in two seasons ago when the side clinched the title with three matches to spare, Cahill believes the experience will benefit the team.

Cahill said they felt more comfortable last time around but the run-in will always be the same. In a season, there’s always a stage when things are going alright when Chelsea's opponents feel pressure from the team who feels a win is eminent. Cahill insisted that the feeling and experience helped this time and the team should capitalise on it going forward.

Cahill lauds outgoing skipper Terry

Outgoing Chelsea captain John Terry replaced Brazilian David Luiz for the closing phase of the Middlesbrough game and Cahill handed over the captain’s armband as his veteran team-mate entered the field.

Cahill said he had offered the Chelsea armband for the last time but Terry, being superstitious at times, declined it. No matter what, Terry is obviously the club captain, said Cahill. #Chelsea FC
