Chelsea’s season went from bad to worse as they lost 3-1 at home to Southampton on Saturday.
Things were looking up for Jose Mourinho’s men when they took a 10th-minute lead through Brazilian midfielder Willian, but that was before goals from Steven Davis, Sadio Mane and Graziano Pelle secured three points for the visitors.
Chelsea are now 16th in the Premier League after picking up just eight points from their first eight matches, and the Blues’ defence was put under the spotlight after yet another poor performance – this time with John Terry and Gary Cahill playing centrally.
The latter has featured regularly for Chelsea this season but against Southampton he had a match to forget.
Cahill gave the ball away in the move that led to Mane’s goal and the England international looked out of sorts throughout.
After the match we took to Twitter to see what Chelsea fans thought of Cahill’s performance and you can read a selection of what we found below:
Cahill has not been great for some time so playing him on the right side of CB,Ivanovic will always expose him— KRYP (@kwakuzii) October 4, 2015
I don't know what else he has to do. The players just won't perform. Look at Terry, Brana, Hazard, Pedro, Matic, even Cahill. Oh and Falcao.— CHAMPIONS! (@Tooyib) October 4, 2015
