Gary Cahill declared Chelsea are ready to both play and fight their way to the Premier League title after Sunday's 1-1 draw at Burnley extended their lead at the top to 10 points.

Antonio Conte's side met fire with fire at Turf Moor, where Burnley demonstrated why they boast the third best home record in the top flight this season behind only Chelsea and Tottenham.

Pedro's early goal appeared to have set the Blues on their way to a ninth league win on the road, but they were forced to go toe-to-toe against fierce opposition after Robbie Brady's superb first-half free-kick on his full debut drew Burnley level.

"It was freezing cold, snowing, the pitch was average, it was going to be one of those games," Cahill said. "Sometimes you have to dig in at places like this to get the point and maybe it is an important point, we'll have to wait and see."
