Chelsea play host to Manchester City at Stamford Bridge on Saturday, and Blues fans are divided on whether their captain Gary Cahill should start the game.
The Blues have recovered well from their opening day defeat at home to Burnley by going unbeaten in their last five Premier League games, including a 4-0 win against Stoke City at the Britannia Stadium last weekend.
They followed that success up with an impressive 2-1 victory against Atletico Madrid in the Spanish capital in the Champions League during the week, and even though Cahill performed brilliantly he continues to come under scrutiny from the Stamford Bridge faithful.
Meanwhile, City go into the weekend top of the table and having netted 21 goals in their six top flight games, although they will be missing Sergio Aguero after he broke a rib in a car accident in the Netherlands on Thursday.
Chelsea supporters were quick to have their say on whether Cahill should be included in the starting XI via social media, and while some said they ‘don’t think he should start’, others believe the side will “need” him.
Here is just a selection of the Twitter reaction…

I wish Antonio Conte starts Rudiger ahead of Cahill and play Kante, Bakayoko and Fabregas in midfield. If this could happen Chelsea will win

Cahill was class against Atletico. If he starts today I'll be 100% behind him but I'd rather Rüdiger starts

In a game this big Chelsea are gonna need Cahill in the back. Played solid against atletico, and his leadership is huge

I like Cahill. Divided opinion within Chelsea fans, but for me he's proper Chels.
Chips in with fair share of goals each season too 👌
