Cahill says the Chelsea squad have not been discussing their bid for a place
in the Premier League record books.
The England defender thinks that will remain the case ahead of Wednesday's
massive London derby at Tottenham.
Chelsea equalled Arsenal's single-season record for Premier League wins when
they beat Stoke 4-2 on Saturday to make it 13 in a row.
And they will equal the Gunners' overall record tally of 14 victories if
they can leave White Hart Lane with three points.
But Cahill told Chelsea TV after the Stoke game: "It's not been something
we've spoken about.
"It's not like all week we've been saying 'we want this record, we want this
"We've just kept going, and I think that's the right mentality to have.
"Being aware of the record and wanting to achieve it, there's nothing wrong
with that. For sure, I want to achieve it.
"Every player wants to be a part of records - I'm not shy about saying that
- but it's not something we speak about.
"We just have to keep focused on the job that we're doing.
"We're getting this run and we're getting this success through hard work and
through everyone chipping in with their part in the game. That's the
mentality we should have, that shouldn't change."
Chelsea ended Tottenham's title challenge last season when an intense
Stamford Bridge tussle ended in a draw and now the teams will lock horns in
another high profile clash.
Cahill added: "We realise it's a game everyone's going to be speaking about.
"Because it's Tottenham that's not going to change our preparation, the way
we go about things.
"It's going to be exactly the same. We expect exactly the same from each and
every player come kick-off time, and we'll be OK."
