Cape Town - Chelsea defender Gary Cahill has acknowledged the club's below-par campaign was unacceptable, but insists they will turn things around next season.

The Blues have endured their worst record in two decades, after failing to defend their Premier League title this season, as they finished 10th with just 50 points in the league standings, adding to their elimination from the Champions League Round of 16 and the FA Cup.

"The season was not good at all, it was obviously disappointing and it didn’t go to plan for us," Cahill told the official Chelsea website. "But all we can do now is go again next season.

"We know it is unacceptable for a club like Chelsea to have a season like we have had this year. We take this bad taste in the mouth into next year because we don't want to have it again.

"We don't want to have a period of playing football matches for nothing. It is the worst feeling ever so we need to remember this time.

"What doesn't kill you makes you stronger and we need to be stronger for this."
