Crystal Palace defender Gary Cahill is determined to help put this Crystal Palace team into the record books.
Palace have virtually sealed their place in the Premier League for another year following Saturday’s 1-0 win at home to Watford.
Cahill believes Palace should now look to beating their best-ever points tally of 49 set last season and also improve on their highest placing of 10th.
“Now we have to look forward to see how high we can finish,” Cahill told reporters. “To better last season and better the records set in previous seasons in terms of points tallies.
“Then who knows next season, let’s see. Hopefully we go into next season with a fully fit squad and maybe some additions and we’ll see where we go.”
The former Chelsea and England star has paid tribute to manager Roy Hodgson’s thirst for the game after the 74-year-old signed a new deal with the Eagles.
“It is incredible the appetite for the game he has got, unbelievable at that age,” added Cahill. “It is incredible. He has been in the game for so long, in different countries, leagues and with national teams so there is not much he probably hasn’t experienced.
“It is great for the lads that he has signed an extension, it is the stability for the club and players for next season.
“His drive to still be involved and still be hungry to come in every single day is unbelievable, it is crazy, I’m not sure that will be me!”
