thumbnail Hello,

The centre-back is wary of the threat held by the German outfit but is keen for him and his team-mates to make amends for the shock 2-0 loss to Newcastle United

Gary Cahill has called for Chelsea to "put things right" in Wednesday's Champions League clash with Schalke following the weekend loss to Newcastle.

Goals from Yoan Gouffran and Loic Remy ended the Blues' six-game winning streak with a 2-0 defeat at St. James' Park as they lost ground on Premier League table-toppers Arsenal.

And the England international has urged his team-mates to make amends immediately against Schalke as they look to strengthen their chances of qualifying for the knockout rounds.

"You're going to be angry and disappointed when you lose games. The manager is no different to the players and we all feel the same way because we're all in it together," Cahill told the club's official website.

"Unfortunately we had a poor result but before that we had three great results against three massive teams. The best thing as players is to get straight back out there and put things right.

"We have the opportunity to show a positive reaction tomorrow and I'm sure we'll do it."

Jose Mourinho's men won the reverse fixture 3-0 in Gelsenkirchen two weeks ago and Cahill is confident of a repeat result, though remains cautious of complacency in a relatively tight Group F.

"I think we're expecting a similar game to the one in Germany," he continued. "We were very organised out there, and we limited them to long-distance efforts.

"We caught them on the counter attack a few times but nevertheless they did have a lot of possession and they have some great players.

"The onus will be on us tomorrow to be on the front foot because we are playing at home. If we can go out there with the same attitude as we had in the away game then I'm sure we will be okay."
