Chelsea defender Tim Cahill believes they can win at Newcastle to complete a perfect week after great wins against Manchester City and Arsenal.

Fernando Torres pounced on Joe Hart's mistake to secure a last-gasp 2-1 victory over City at Stamford Bridge last Sunday. 

Just 48 hours later the Blues knocked London rivals Arsenal out of the Capital One Cup curtesy of goals from Cesar Azpilicueta and Juan Mata.

And Cahill is confident his team continue their good form of late when they face Newcastle at St James' Park in Saturday's early kick-off.

“Every game is important at the moment,” Cahill told Chelsea's official website.

“It's another big one at the end of what's been a good week for us so far, with victories against two big teams.

“We're going into the game full of confidence and feeling extremely positive, and it's important we keep the momentum which we've built up over the last few matches.

“Man City was a massive game, we all knew the importance of it, so to get the result was fantastic, and to then follow that up at Arsenal, not just the result, but the performance as well, was great from the lads.

“Everybody's feeling sharp because we're winning football matches, but there are no easy games in the Premier League and Newcastle will be another tough test for us."

The England international defender was the only player who started against both Manchester City and Arsenal, but insists everyone at the club understands the difficulty Jose Mourinho faces, having to choose who to start each game.

“The manager asked for selection problems before the Arsenal game and that's what he got,” explained the 27-year-old.

“We've got a squad of players who could all quite easily be starting, over the last two games we've pretty much played with two different teams and played really well.

“It can only be a positive that everybody's performing and looking fresh, as a squad we're going well and the manager will have a difficult job choosing the team to play at Newcastle."

The Blues have the opportunity to go to temporarily top of the Premier League table tomorrow if they emerge victorious against the Magpies, as Arsenal and Liverpool clash later on in the day.
