Blues hold a 1-0 first-leg advantage ahead of Stamford Bridge return.
Chelsea take a 1-0 lead with them into the second leg of their Europa League round-of-32 tie with Sparta Prague at Stamford Bride on Thursday.
“I think it’s important for us because, obviously, it’s a chance for us to win something this year,” said defender Gary Cahill.
“We’re still in the FA Cup but I think we’ve got to look at it from that point of view, that it’s a chance for us to go a try and win a trophy. So we need to go and do as well as we possibly can in there.”
“Obviously Pete’s (Petr Cech, goalkeeper) massive, he’s been massive for many years, he’s won many trophies here at Chelsea – and he’s become a bit of legend here. So he’s a fantastic goalkeeper, it’s great to play in front of him that’s for sure. He’s a big player for us.”
Meanwhile, Blues head coach Rafa Benitez said his side were in good heart going into the tie: “I was not just analysing players, just the performance of the team. I think the team had good ideas about what they wanted to do, that means that the manager was doing a good job.
“The shape of the team, the movements, the patterns, they were good. We were talking about that before. So we know it will not be an easy game. I don’t say it will be difficult or not because it depends, but it will not be an easy game, for sure.”
