Chelsea can make life uncomfortable for Manchester City when they visit Eastlands in two weeks time, despite the sky blues' 'devastating' home form.
That's the boast of Gary Cahill, who says Chelsea will give City the sort of game that they wouldn't want to face every week.
Chelsea are set to visit Manuel Pellegrini's side on Monday February 3, with some already talking about the clash between the Premier League's two form sides as being crucial to the destination of the title.
Cahill is reticent to pin so much significance on the game, but insists Chelsea can and will give City a tough game.
“I don’t think it’s a decider,” he said. “There is a long way to go, we’re just over halfway through the season.
“There have been times where we’ve slipped up and they’ve slipped up away from home.
“We know how devastating they are at home, it’s going to be tough. We beat them here and it’s going to be even harder up there to get a result. It’s one to look forward to.”
Chelsea remain unbeaten against the Premier League's top sides this season, and Cahill believes this gives them an extra something when they do make the much-feared trip to the blue half of Manchester.
“It gives us hope (to break their 100 per cent home record) because of the quality in our squad,” he added.
“They won’t want to play against us every week and we wouldn’t want to play against them every week. They have been devastating at home – it’s going to be very tough.”
