After an imperious season last time around as Chelsea marched to the Premier League title with a minimum of fuss, Gary Cahill looked a natural fit for the Blues’ captaincy when John Terry finally left the club in the summer.
The England international’s season started with him leading out the reigning champions and destined for Russia but now, his Three Lions place is in serious jeopardy after an extended period out of the Chelsea team under Antonio Conte.
The man valued at £13.5m by Transfermarkt has been integrated back into the setup under the Italian potentially just in time to make the FA Cup final next month against Manchester United and it remains to be seen whether he has done enough to impress Gareth Southgate ahead of this summer’s World Cup.
For their part, Blues fans do not want Cahill to back in their team between now and the end of the season and have urged Conte to carry on leaving him out…
Wtf?.. glad he's leaving next month

I'm paranoid about Cahill in the defence. Don't risk.
