Gary Cahill believes that Chelsea showed their quality and deserved to beat Shakhtar Donetsk thanks to a late header from Victor Moses.

Chelsea defender Gary Cahill has hailed his side's resolve to secure a late victory over Shakhtar Donetsk.

The Blues earned the win against the dangerous Ukrainian outfit with a header from Victor Moses in stoppage time.

Cahill admitted that Shakhtar were impressive but believes that the Blues deserved to snatch all three points.

He told Sky Sports News: "Shakhtar Donetsk were very good, and at times it looked like they played five up front.

"They pushed people forward but I thought we played well. They are a fantastic team but we pushed forward at end and we're very pleased with the three points.

"They were a quality team but it was great impact from Vic with his head. We stressed this week how big a win tonight would be and it's fantastic we got over the line in the last minute."

A crucial win moves Roberto Di Matteo's side level with Shakhtar and a single point ahead of Juventus in the battle to reach the Champions League knockout stages.
