Chelsea fans demand Antonio Conte drops Gary Cahill against West Brom

Chelsea will look to bounce back from their 4-1 defeat to Watford at Vicarage Road last week when they host bottom of the table West Bromwich Albion at Stamford Bridge on Monday night, and Blues fans have demanded that Antonio Conte doesn’t start key figure Gary Cahill.

The club captain was one of those in particular that struggled against the Hornets, and he has often come under criticism for some of his performances for the Premier League holders this season.

The skipper started alongside Cesar Azpilicueta and David Luiz at the back in Hertfordshire, and Antonio Rudiger and Andreas Christensen – if he is fit enough to be involved after a hamstring injury – could be in contention to come into the back three against the Baggies.

Chelsea supporters were quick to have their say on Cahill via social media, and while one said “as for Cahill I just can’t understand why he plays him”, another said “if Cahill starts I won’t watch the match”.
