Gary Cahill "confident" of Champions League progress

Chelsea defender Gary Cahill insists that his side can overturn their first-leg deficit against PSG in the last 16 of the Champions League.

Chelsea defender Gary Cahill has insisted that his side can overturn their first-leg deficit against Paris Saint-Germain in the last 16 of the Champions League.

The Blues travelled to the Parc des Princes for the first leg this evening and scored an away goal, but ultimately succumbed to a 2-1 defeat at the hands of the French champions.

However, a 1-0 win in the second leg at Stamford Bridge next month would see Guus Hiddink's side qualify for the quarter-finals, and Cahill is confident of pulling it off.

"We are more confident at home, we know what we need to do. We knew how tough it was to come here and get a result. The way the tie is poised we have done it before at home," he told BT Sport.

The defeat was Chelsea's first in any competition since Jose Mourinho left the club in December.
