Chelsea have recorded back-to-back wins for the first time in two months.
The Blues travel to White Hart Lane on Sunday on the back of successive wins over Maccabi Tel Aviv and Norwich City, but face the daunting task of taking points off Mauricio Pochettino’s resilient side.
The Argentine tactician has transformed Spurs into genuine title contenders, with the north London side losing just one of their first 13 Premier League games this season.
Tottenham stunned the champions in a 5-3 win in the same fixture last season, and Pochettino will be hoping that the likes of Dele Alli and Harry Kane can inspire his side to another important victory.
However, Cahill is adamant that Chelsea’s recent results can help Jose Mourinho’s men come away with all three points as they chase a top-four finish.
The England international told Chelsea TV: “It’s important we keep this momentum going.
“It was [important to beat Maccabi] for a number of reasons. First and foremost, the most important one was for the Champions League and to make sure we put ourselves in a position to try to qualify top.
“But as well as to build to momentum off the back of the Norwich result and keep building these wins and try to gather these wins to turn this around.
“It was important for a lot of reasons and very pleasing. We’ve got this week to prepare for the Tottenham game.
“They’re playing very well at the minute. I’ve no doubt it’ll be an entertaining game and one where we’re hoping to be on the end of the right result.”
Goals from Cahill, Willian, Oscar and Kurt Zouma helped Chelsea cruise to a 4-0 win over Maccabi on Tuesday evening, although the result was overshadowed by an injury to John Terry.
Ramires also suffered a problem during a training session on Monday, but Cahill admits that Chelsea are still happy to be travelling home with all three points after fellow group stage rivals Dynamo Kiev secured a surprise away win against Porto.
He added: “We knew at half-time they [Kiev] were leading [Porto] so it meant it was even more important for us [to win].
“We knew, if we won, it would be in our hands at Stamford Bridge. So bring it on.”
