Chelsea fans loved Gary Cahill’s performance up against Mohamed Salah

Chelsea boosted their hopes of qualifying for next season’s UEFA Champions League with a 1-0 win over Liverpool at Stamford Bridge on Sunday.

Olivier Giroud’s 32nd minute goal was enough to give the Blues a victory in the English Premier League which moves them two points behind fourth-placed Tottenham Hotspur and three points behind the Reds.

It ensures that the battle for the top four will go into the final two games of the season.

Fans were delighted with the result and performance against the Champions League finalists, paying particular tribute to the likes of defender Gary Cahill for keeping attacking talents like Mohamed Salah quiet all afternoon.

Salah has scored an incredible 42 goals this season but couldn’t find the back of the net in the face of top-tier defending from the home side.

Cahill has received a fair amount of criticism this season for under-par performances so fans were happy to pay him special praise for his Sunday display.
