Chelsea fans tore into Gary Cahill on Twitter yesterday afternoon after the Blues captain put in a dismal display during the 0-0 stalemate with Arsenal.

Cahill had not featured in the Premier League since the opening day when he was sent off against Burnley. Antonio Rudiger had deputised in his absence and scarcely put a foot wrong. Yet, as soon as Cahill was back available for selection, Antonio Conte opted to fast-track him straight back into the starting side.

Chelsea fans are not happy at all, and understandably so. Despite keeping a clean sheet against the Gunners, Cahill’s distribution from the back-line was poor and the team suffered as a result.

It is difficult to see why Conte drafted him straight back into his starting eleven. What sort of message does it send out when both Rudiger and Andreas Christensen have performed in his absence, yet are shunned when he returns?

Many of the Blues faithful took to Twitter to share their discontent. Here’s how some of them reacted to the England international’s forgettable performance.

He was really bad against Arsenal, and the sending off against Burnley doesn’t help him. He should be dropped and Rudiger og Christensen should play instead. Both of them can send a pass forwards, not just back to the keeper or David Luiz or Azpi

It’s sickening to watch the guy play in that team, sometimes i feel so irritated watching him. He doesn’t trust his game and at the same time, he wants to act like a boss, but does not know the job of a boss. Chelsea should just send him packing, of… Read more »
