Gary Cahill Chelsea

A round up of news stories this morning about Chelsea.

England boss Roy Hodgson has eased fears relating to Chelsea centre-back Gary Cahill.

Cahill is thought to be carrying a slight ankle knock but Hodgson confirmed that he doesn’t think the defender is suffering after his appearance against Norway last night.

“He [Cahill] came with knock on the ankle as you know from the Everton-Chelsea game,” said Hodgson.

“He trained yesterday and could have completed the game today but we thought it was prudent to take him off with 10-15 minutes left but there should be no doubt about him being available [for Switzerland].”

Chelsea star Andre Schurrle grabbed a goal for Germany in an otherwise below par performance for the world champions against Argentina.

The Argentines were able to get some revenge over the side that defeated them in the World Cup final with a 4-2 victory in Germany’s back yard.

Schurrle pounced to score from a corner when Argentina were already 4-0 up.

Cesar Azpilicueta has revealed his delight after signing a new five-year contract at the club.

The Spanish defender signed the deal earlier this week immediately attracting praise from all corners of the club’s support base.

“Happy for staying five years more at Chelsea,” is what Azpilicueta Tweeted on Twitter.
