England defender Gary Cahill is confident that Chelsea will bounce back from their poor start to the season when the Premier League returns after the international break.
Jose Mourinho’s men has lost four of their opening eight Premier League matches and sit 16th on the log in what is their worst start in the Portuguese era with the Blues.
“Luck’s not on our side at the minute, but you have to make your own luck in terms of performances at the club,” Cahill told reporters.
“That’s something I’m determined to put right and I’m sure everyone else is. It’s not a nice feeling at the minute and one we don’t want to have for very much longer.”
Cahill also spoke about his joy at wearing the Three Lions armband in the absence of Wayne Rooney during the 2-0 victory over Estonia on Friday.
“It was an amazing feeling for me and my family and a moment I’ll never ever forget.
“Once I knew I was captain, I wanted to make it work and to lead them to a positive result, and thankfully it went that way.
“I thought I played well, and the team played well. The most important thing was that we won, so it was a good night.”
Chelsea returns to the Premier League on Saturday as they host Aston Villa at Stamford Bridge.
