LIVERPOOL VS CHELSEA Chelsea hit Liverpool's Barclays Premier League title hopes at Anfield for a second straight season after a 2-1 win on Saturday. Brendan Rodgers' side came into the game looking to banish the memories of last term's corresponding fixture, Steven Gerrard's slip and the defeat which halted their trophy charge. But again they came out second best as Gary Cahill and Diego Costa overturned Emre Can's first Liverpool goal and Chelsea moved a daunting 15 points clear of the Merseysiders. Gerrard, Mario Balotelli and Jordan Henderson were recalled after being omitted from the starting line-up for the Uefa Champions League match with Real Madrid, but it was the only change from last week’s BPL defeat by Newcastle United, Can, who put the hosts ahead early on with an effort that deflected in off Cahill. The England man, against whom twice claims for handball in the Chelsea area were dismissed, atoned just five minutes later, bundling home despite Simon Mignolet's best efforts. Jose Mourinho's ...
Chelsea have little time to recover from their excursions in the Champions League last night as they travel to Anfield to take on Liverpool on Saturday lunchtime. Here is the line-up we think Jose Mourinho will go with: Goalkeeper: Thibaut Courtois should come straight back in after Petr Cech was given a rare run-out against Maribor last night. Defence: Cesar Azpilicueta is likely to replace Filipe Luis at left-back after serving his three-match domestic ban. Gary Cahill will also be recalled in place of Kurt Zouma after being given a breather on Wednesday night. John Terry and Branislav Ivanovic will retain their places at the back. Midfield: Mourinho is unlikely to make any changes in midfield as Cesc Fabregas and Nemanja Matic are excelling in the middle of the park. John Obi Mikel is struggling with a knee injury which limits his options for rotation in any case. Attack: Diego Costa came on at half- time last night but he’s expected to be restored to the starting eleven on Saturday with Didier Drogb ...

Chelsea skipper Terry struggling to make Atletico Madrid clash Chelsea captain John Terry is struggling to make their Champions League semifinal second-leg against Atletico Madrid. The Daily Star says he is rated 50-50 to make a shock return from an ankle injury and face Atletico tomorrow. It is understood Mourinho is planning to play Branislav Ivanovic at centre back alongside Gary Cahill - with Cesar Azpilicueta and Ashley Cole the full backs - if Terry cannot make it.
THREE Reasons Why Chelsea WILL Win The Champions League The semi-finalists for the Champions League are now confirmed - Chelsea will go up against one of Atletico Madrid, Bayern Munich or Real Madrid. The draw is on Friday, but whoever they get I think Chelsea will win the tournament. Here are three reasons why. 1) Jose Mourinho The Portuguese coach has vast experience across European football and knows exactly what is needed to win the competition. Mourinho won the Champions League against all odds whilst in charge of Porto, and then picked up the trophy when at Inter Milan. If there is one coach who you'd want in charge going into the Champions League semi-final it would be him. 2) Solid defence John Terry and Gary Cahill are one of the best central pairings I have seen this season. They are half of the Premier League's tightest defence and have proved to be a tough nut to crack in Europe. Atletico Madrid have Diego Costa, Real Madrid have Cristiano Ronaldo and Bayern Munich have a host of top-class att ...
TEAM NEWS: CHELSEA V STOKE CITY Jose Mourinho gives a rest to Eden Hazard and with Oscar also on the bench, there is a full debut for Mohamed Salah. Fernando Torresis centre-forward and with Ramires unavailable as he completes a three-match suspension, Nemanja Matic returns to the midfield having been ineligible for the Champions League. Frank Lampard also starts with David Luiz making way. The defence is unchanged for the 10thgame. Chelsea are expected to line up in the following 4-2-3-1 formation: 1 Petr Cech; 2 Branislav Ivanovic, 24 Gary Cahill, 26 John Terry(c), 28 Cesar Azpilicueta; 8 Frank Lampard, 21 Nemanja Matic; 14 Andre Schurrle, 22 Willian, 15 Mohamed Salah; 9 Fernando Torres.

Blues boss Jose Mourinho has used the 26 year old Brazilian sparingly this term and his display against Crystal Palace has apparently convinced him to sell the former Benfica man. Chelsea are confident of winning the race to sign £45m rated Atletico Madrid star Costa and will look to bank £35m from the sale of Luiz to help cover the lion’s share of the cost. Mourinho ‘hauled’ off Luiz at half-time during the club’s surprise defeat to Crystal Palace and that may well prove his last Premier League run-out in Chelsea colours. Luiz is however expected to face PSG this week due to first choice midfielder Nemanja Matic being cup-tied. PSG and Barcelona are both thought to be keen on Luiz and both sides see the player as an option to be used at centre-back, where he is seemingly no longer required at Chelsea with Mourinho seeing Gary Cahill and John Terry as his first choice pairing. David Luiz was pivotal in Chelsea’s Champions League and Europa League triumph but doesn’t appear to be a key part o ...

Jose Mourinho gave Didier Drogba the kiss of death - and then claimed Chelsea's win lifted them back among the world's elite. Stamford Bridge legend Drogba and the Special One shared a warm embrace before kick-off, and Chelsea presented Drogba with a mounted silver boot to commemorate the Ivory Coast striker's 157 goals and trophy-laden eight years at the club. But first-half goals from Samuel Eto'o and Gary Cahill condemned Drogba to a miserable night as Mourinho's men kept the blue flag flying over Europe and marched comfortably into the Champions League quarter-finals. Mourinho will today be charged with misconduct by the FA for encroaching on the pitch before he was sent to the stand at Aston Villa on Saturday, which is likely to land him with a £10,000 fine. But a brown envelope on the doormat from Wembley could not diminish the pleasure he took from a commanding Chelsea display. He said: "We are there in the last eight, but it's different from last season because the Europa League was a different l ...
Chelsea eased into the quarter-finals of the Champions League at the expense of Galatasaray on Tuesday, while Cristiano Ronaldo scored twice as Real Madrid completed a comprehensive win against Schalke 04. First-half goals from Samuel Eto'o and Gary Cahill gave Chelsea a 2-0 victory as they saw off their Turkish opponents 3-1 on aggregate to succeed where fellow Premier League clubs Arsenal and Manchester City failed and make it into the last eight. Meanwhile, Carlo Ancelotti's Madrid defeated Schalke 3-1 at the Santiago Bernabeu to advance 9-2 on aggregate and extend their long unbeaten run to 31 games. The build-up to the game at Stamford Bridge had been dominated by the return of Didier Drogba to the ground where he is still hailed as a hero and the Ivorian - scorer of the winning penalty when Chelsea beat Bayern Munich in a shoot-out in the 2012 final - was presented with a silver boot prior to kick-off. Chelsea's away-goal advantage from last month's meeting in Istanbul meant they had no obligation t ...
Chelsea ease through on Drogba's homecoming day On a day when their supporters paid homage to one of the club’s all-time greats, Chelsea shone the light for English teams in European competition with a comfortable 2-0 win over Galatasaray at Stamford Bridge. The win ensures the Blues' participation in the quarterfinals of the Champions League at the expense of Didier Drogba’s side thanks to goals from Samuel Eto’o and Gary Cahill in a match played in a jubilant and almost expectant atmosphere. From the moment the deadlock was broken by Eto'o after just four minutes, the result never seemed in doubt, a testament to the solidity that Jose Mourinho has instilled into the team as well as the relatively blunt edge presented by the visitors. One of the hallmarks of this season has been the return of defensive parsimony, irrespective of the opposition. It has been the cornerstone to Chelsea’s upsurge in the past few months and was evident once again on Tuesday. At no point did progress ever look in any d ...
Chelsea dominant in dispatching Galatasaray Chelsea FC made it an unhappy return to Stamford Bridge for Galatasaray AŞ's Didier Drogba by marching into the Uefa Champions League quarter-finals for the eighth time in 11 seasons. While all the attention had been focused on the reunion with their former forward, it was one of their current ones, Samuel Eto'o, who got the ball rolling Chelsea's way with a strike after four minutes. If that was a well-worked incursion, the second goal owed everything to smart reactions, Gary Cahill following up a John Terry header to score from close range. Drogba – a winner of ten major prizes with Chelsea and who will always be remembered for the decisive penalty against FC Bayern München which ensured they lifted the 2011/12 Uefa Champions League – battled as hard as he could and typically won a number of headers and free-kicks, but support was in short supply simply because the home side were so dominant. The game panned out that way from the fourth minute when Eden ...

FULL-TIME: Chelsea 2 Galatasaray 0 and we are through to the quarter-finals of the Champions League! Goals from Samuel Etoo' and defender Gary Cahill
A squad of 21 players is travelling from London to Istanbul today (Monday) ahead of Wednesday's Champions League Round of 16 first- leg match. David Luiz and John Mikel Obi are both included. They missed Saturday's win over Everton due to injury and Oscar also travels. Jose Mourinho reported after Saturday's game that the Brazilian attacking midfielder, who was substituted at half-time, had discomfort in his ankle. Henrique Hilario is the third goalkeeper having been added, along with Tomas Kalas , to the Champions League squad A-List for the knockout phase. Nathan Ake is the one young player from the B-List travelling. January signings Nemanja Matic and Mohamed Salah cannot play for Chelsea in the Champions League this season having appeared in the group stage for their former clubs. The full squad is: Petr Cech , Mark Schwarzer , Henrique Hilario , John Terry , Gary Cahill , David Luiz , Ashley Cole , Cesar Azpilicueta , Branislav Ivanovic , Tomas Kalas , Nathan Ake, Frank Lampard , John Mikel Obi , Ram ...
Jose Mourinho is ready to risk an Fa Cup embarrassment at Manchester City on Saturday as he targets the Premier League title. After losing calf-injury victim Gary Cahill for Chelsea's second trip to the Etihad in 12 days, Mourinho is weighing up giving his centre-back partner and skipper John Terry extra time off to ensure he is fit for their next league game, at home to Everton on February 22, and the Champions League trip to Galatasaray four days later. Terry, who had played every minute of this Premier League season until he sat out the weekend win over Newcastle, was badly missed on Tuesday as the Blues let two vital points slip at West Brom.The Chelsea skipper is keen to return to action after what Mourinho has described as a "double muscle injury" sustained in training last Friday. But the Portuguese is aware that a recurrence of the injury against City, or rushing the 33-year-old to get him back, could lead to a longer absence at a pivotal point in the season. Mourinho is also keen to give Ashley C ...
Mourinho willing to let Chelsea star leave for Bayern Munich in £41m January transfer The Portuguese boss is open to allowing Luiz to transfer to Germany. Chelsea defender David Luiz is the subject of interest from German giants Bayern Munich and Jose Mourinho is willing to let the Brazilian leave in January for £41m, reports A Bola. The 26-year-old was one of the Blues best players last season, but Mourinho has concerns over Luiz’s defensive capabilities and has generally preferred a partnership of Gary Cahill and captain John Terry. This lack of game time is frustrating for the South American and the chance to switch to the Allianz Arena would be a prospect most players would find difficult to turn down. Bayern are currently a treble-winning club after securing the Bundesliga title, German Cup and Champions League in 2012/13. Since then maverick coach Pep Guardiola has also taken over as manager and the Spaniard is a great draw for top players. Luiz would also be able to link up with fellow Brazilia ...
Chelsea recovered from a shock early Southampton goal to win 3-1 and close the gap on Premier League leaders Arsenal to four points again. Stamford Bridge was silenced in the first minute of Sunday's clash when Jay Rodriguez punished an error from Michael Essien - making his first Premier League start since May 2012 - to put Saints ahead. But second-half goals from Gary Cahill, John Terry and substitute Demba Ba produced an emphatic turnaround and kept the Blues on the Gunners' heels. Jose Mourinho made four changes to his side, with midfielders Juan Mata and Essien, striker Fernando Torres and forward Eden Hazard all starting. John Obi Mikel, Frank Lampard, Willian and the injured Samuel Eto'o were the players who made way following the 1-0 Uefa Champions League defeat at Basel in midweek. Saints showed two changes from the side which began last weekend's loss at Arsenal, with Dejan Lovren and Dani Osvaldo replacing Jos Hooiveld and Rickie Lambert.
Chelsea are inviting January offers for David Luiz. The Mail on Sunday says Luiz was axed for the midweek Champions League win over Schalke and was left on the bench again for the 2-2 draw with West Brom on Saturday, with John Terry and Gary Cahill the preferred and first-choice pairing. The 26-year-old is hugely popular with the fans but some of the Chelsea players have started to agree with manager Jose Mourinho’s belief the player is too casual and showy. For all his talent, Mourinho feels the rugged edge he likes from his central defenders is missing and he doesn’t see Luiz as an option in midfield.
Eto'o too sharp for Schalke. A Timo Hildebrand howler helped Samuel Eto'o set Chelsea on their way to a 3-0 Champions League home win over Schalke on Wednesday night. The Cameroon striker scored his first goal in Europe for the Blues on 31 minutes after a bad mistake from visiting goalkeeper Hildebrand, and fired in a second nine minutes after the break. There was time for Eto'o's replacement Demba Ba to get on the scoresheet too seven minutes from time as Chelsea took control of Group E by matching their margin of victory in Gelsenkirchen on Matchday Three. Following Saturday's 2-0 Premier League defeat at Newcastle, Blues boss Jose Mourinho made six changes to his starting line-up. Gary Cahill, Cesar Azpilicueta, Andre Schurrle, John Obi Mikel, Willian and Eto'o came in, with David Luiz, Ashley Cole, Juan Mata and Frank Lampard dropping to the bench. Fernando Torres was missing with a leg injury, but there was some confusion over why Eden Hazard was left out of the matchday 18. Before kick-off, Mourinho ...
MATCH REPORT: CHELSEA 2 TOTTENHAM HOTSPUR 2 RC98 Summary A Brazilian brace was not enough to secure victory in a ferocious London derby that leaves us waiting to secure Champions League football. Oscar and Ramires twice put Chelsea in front during the first half, but Spurs fought back and earned a point they probably deserved thanks to a late equaliser. We went in front early when Oscar nodded in at the far post after Gary Cahill had flicked on Juan Mata's corner, but Spurs, led by former Chelsea manager Andre Villas-Boas, equalised 15 minutes later through Emmanuel Adebayor's solo effort. Both sides had chances before the Blues retook the lead through the ever-fresh Ramires, bursting beyond Tottenham's midfield and backline before poking home seven minutes before the break. It looked as though that would be enough to see us through but the visitors equalised once more 11 minutes from time through substitute Gylfi Sigurdsson, after Adebayor, possibly offside, had fed him inside the area. The game continue ...

Dear collectors, customers and fellow sellers... I am not sure who knows what with recent SoccerStarz developments over the past few days but this is what I believe to be the plan having been in conversation with them recently. CHELSEA BLUE BASES There will be 9 blue base Champions League blisters available. There will be no more than 750 blisters produced per figure. This means the 23-man pack is now limited to 4250 units. Paulo Ferreira, Frank Lampard, David Luiz, Fernando Torres, Gary Cahill, Obi Mikel, Oriol Romeu, Ross Turnbull, Ryan Bertrand. This may be the reason why Bosingwa has a blue base although I would imagine there are a lot more than 750 made! The other 13 players (14 inc. Bosingwa) will be detained by SoccerStarz and used in the future in some way to be decided. ARSENAL NEW SQUAD NUMBERS Wilshere will NOT be available in blister pack but will be released in blind sachets. Szcesny will be released within the next month (possibly in limited numbers).

»Rafael Benitez’s tumultuous reign as Chelsea interim manager took another twist last night after he risked opening a rift with captain John Terry. The Spaniard, who has proved an unpopular appointment among Blues fans, left the 32-year-old former England captain on the bench in their 1-0 win at Sparta Prague in the Europa League. Brazilian forward Oscar scored a late winner for last season’s European champions, and after the game Benitez warned Terry he was no longer guaranteed a place in the team. The centre-back is seen as a legend among Chelsea fans after captaining the club to three Premier League titles and the Champions League, although he was suspended for the final. Bad part for the former three lions skipper: Terry has also been involved in five Fa Cup-winning teams and has won the League Cup twice, although he has attracted a number of negative headlines for non-football issues. Gary Cahill and Branislav Ivanovic were preferred to Terry last night as, Benitez claims, the Chelsea captain st ...

Chelsea - Arsenal Preview: Benitez's side looking to halt Stamford Bridge woes The Blues have been horribly out of form at home recently, and take on a Gunners team that will be eager to close the gap on their rivals for a Champions League spot PROBABLE LINEUPS CHELSEA Cech Azpilicueta, Ivanovic, Luiz, Cole Ramires, Lampard Oscar, Mata, Hazard Ba ARSENAL Szczesny Sagna, Koscielny, Vermaelen, Gibbs Wilshere, Diaby Oxlade-Chamberlain, Cazorla, Podolski Walcott Chelsea have an almost fully fit squad to choose from, with Oriol Romeu (knee) the only long-term absentee. John Terry has returned to fitness but is unlikely to start. Nigerian duo Victor Moses and John Obi Mikel have both travelled to South Africa for the Africa Cup of Nations so are unavailable for selection.

Chelsea beaten to CWC title * Chelsea were beaten 1-0 by Corinthians on Sunday as they became the first Champions League holders to fail to win the Club World Cup for six years. A week and a half after making the wrong sort of history by crashing out of the competition that means the most to them, the Blues were at it again in Japan as they surrendered a trophy for the fourth time already this season. Despite being firm favourites to beat Corinthians in Yokohama, they were outplayed and - more worryingly - outfought by the South American champions, who sealed victory through Paolo Guerrero in front of a partisan crowd of die-hard supporters. Fernando Torres had a golden chance to take the game to extra-time - as Didier Drogba managed so famously in the Champions League final - but the Spaniard missed an absolute sitter and saw a stoppage-time header ruled out for offside after Gary Cahill was sent off. It all added to the feeling that Chelsea's £80million summer overhaul had left them with a team of also ...
CAHILL: THE BIG TIME Posted on: Wed 12 Dec 2012 Gary Cahill trained for the first time in the Yokohama International Stadium today (Wednesday). As kick-off draws near for the start of Chelsea's quest to win the Club World Cup, it only emphasises the significance of his decision to join the club less than 12 months ago. The central defender already has significant reasons to value that choice, having won the Champions League and been part of a victorious Fa Cup campaign, even though injury did deny him a place in the Wembley final. Now as he hopes for selection to play in the stadium that hosted the World Cup Final a decade ago, he can feel the hunger for silverware once again. 'When I came to Chelsea I came to win trophies and this is a big opportunity to do that,' Cahill says. 'It is one that doesn't come around very often and we have travelled all this way and we want to go as far as we can. Since we have been over here we have realised how big it is and we have some Brazilians in our squad and it is hu ...
Gary Cahill accepts JT's criticism - Gary Cahill has admitted John Terry was right to blast Chelsea's players for their alarming slump after revealing the squad were at a loss to explain it. Blues captain Terry used his programme notes for Wednesday night's Champions League game with FC Nordsjaelland to brand results during his injury absence as "simply not good enough", demanding more "fight and desire" from his team-mates following a six-match winless run he dubbed the worst of his entire Stamford Bridge career. "If there's a time where it needs to be done then, sure, it's a positive, as long as it's taken in the right way," the England defender said. "You have to dig in as a group. That's the only way you can go forward." Chelsea's squad are known to hold no-holds-barred team meetings in the midst of a crisis. Cahill declined to reveal whether Terry had repeated the sentiments expressed in his programme notes to the players but added: "We've had meetings before at the club, definitely. "When we need th ...
Fernando Torres Fernando Torres has been dropped to the bench for Chelsea 's crucial Champions League group-stage clash with Juventus . Eden Hazard will start as a false No.9 in the absence of the out-of-form Spaniard, with Juan Mata and Oscar tasked with providing the service for the tricky Belgian. In defence, Roberto Di Matteo shifts to a back three of Branislav Ivanovic, David Luiz and Gary Cahill, with the returning Ashley Cole andCesar Azpilicueta are expected to operate as wing-backs. Juventus, meanwhile, prefer Fabio Quagliarella to Sebastian Giovinco up front in what is otherwise a full-strength lineup. Juventus starting XI (3-5-2): Buffon; Chiellini, Barzagli, Bonucci; Lichtsteiner, Marchisio, Pirlo, Vidal, Asamoah; Vucinic, Quagliarella Subs: Storari, Caceres, Pogba, Pepe, Giovinco, Giaccherini, Matri
The Chelsea manager Roberto Di Matteo is likely to drop Fernando Torres and play Eden Hazard in a lone striking role in tonight's Champions League match with Juventus.With Daniel Sturridge apparently having suffered a setback in training, Hazard will play at centre-forward,David Luiz is set to partner Gary Cahill at centre-half, with Branislav Ivanovic starting at right-back and Ashley Cole returning at left-back, according to the Daily Mail.
WAR CRY ... Chelsea boss Roberto Di Matteo Rob tells Blues to carry on fighting From MARK IRWIN in Turin Published: 1 hr ago 4 Roberto Di Matteo has told his warring Chelsea stars to carry on arguing after Saturday’s dressing-room row at The Hawthorns. The Blues will virtually be out of the Champions League if they lose at Juventus tonight and under- fire boss Di Matteo said: “Saturday wasn’t the first time there have been raised voices in the dressing room and I have always encouraged the players to express themselves. “We demand a lot of ourselves and we were very disappointed and frustrated with the defeat at West Brom. “So it was good to see the way the players reacted. We don’t want people to accept poor performances. “It’s important we communicate with each other and now it’s important we show the commitment that is necessary for the game we have to play against Juventus.” Centre-half Gary Cahill was equally candid about the heated inquest at West Brom. He said: “In the short s ...
Gary Cahill is keen for Chelsea to put their Saturday defeat by West Brom behind them by beating Juventus in a key Champions League tie
West Brom maintained their impressive start to the season as they beat Chelsea 2-1 at The Hawthorns. Peter Odemwingie nodded in the winning goal early in the second half after Shane Long and Eden Hazard had also scored with close-range headers before the break. Roberto Di Matteo, on his return to West Brom, saw his side push hard for a second equaliser but they were unable to find a way past Boaz Myhill who was deputising for the injured Ben Foster in the Baggies goal. Chelsea were much changed as they had one eye on Tuesday's crunch clash with Juventus in the Uefa Champions League and left the likes of Ashley Cole, Ramires, Oscar and Juan Mata on the bench. And it showed in their sluggish start when Shane Long escaped the clutches of David Luiz to head past Petr Cech at the far post from a probing James Morrison cross. Chelsea enjoyed plenty of possession in the early stages but Long was a constant threat on the break and got the better of Gary Cahill on two occasions without finding the net. At the othe ...
Chelsea boss Roberto Di Matteo appears to have one eye on his side's Champions League game against Juventus in midweek. He makes five changes with centre-backs Gary Cahill and David Luiz, midfielder Oriol Romeu, winger Victor Moses as well as striker Daniel Sturridge starting. They replace Branislav Ivanovic, John Terry, Ramires, Juan Mata and Oscar.

We Have History PRE-MATCH BRIEFING: SWANSEA CITY V CHELSEA The first game in November sees Chelsea go west, looking to stay top of the pile. Club historian Rick Glanvill and club statistician Paul Dutton switch their attention from cup to league… TALKING POINTS Chelsea's unbeaten runs in the Champions League and Barclays Premier League were ended in consecutive games over the last 10 days, so a return to winning ways on Wednesday was timely. The manner of the success over Manchester United - coming from behind three times, scoring a hatful and never giving up - is becoming a hallmark of this Chelsea side. Late goals have also served the team well. The three on Wednesday brought to eight the total notched from the 80th minute onwards this season. The Blues' back four has also weighed in with an impressive 13 goals this season. Gary Cahill (pictured below) now has five to his name and is behind only Juan Mata (seven) and Fernando Torres (six) on the top scorers list. KEY STAT Chelsea are averaging 2.6 goa ...
Chelsea career Gary Cahill signed for Chelsea in mid-January 2012. He became the fifth current England international in the squad and on moving to Stamford Bridge from Bolton Wanderers, and took the number 24 shirt. He didn't get his first Blues appearances for a couple of weeks as Andre Villas-Boas chose to give him time to acclimatise in west London, but did start the dramatic 3-3 draw with Manchester United and, despite the comeback from the visitors, looked to be showing the early signs of a promising partnership with David Luiz. From that point onwards, Cahill was regularly involved, as knocks to central defenders afforded him opportunities, and he also showed the goalscoring prowess previously on display at former club Bolton and with the England national team, netting two during March. Cahill enjoyed arguably his most impressive game in a Chelsea shirt during the 1-0 Champions League semi-final first leg victory over Barcelona, but having picked up an injury in the return, he missed the last month ...
If, as seems likely, Chelsea have to do without John Terry for at least four domestic games in the near future, then Gary Cahill and David Luiz will need to form a far more solid partnership than was evident in the 4-0 Champions League victory away to Nordsjaelland in Copenhagen on Tuesday.
Chelsea's Cahill backed to cover Terry absence for England Chelsea defender Gary Cahill is ready to step in for the missing John Terry as England prepare to face Ukraine. Frank Lampard has backed Cahill to fill the void. "Gary has grown completely. I have nothing but massive things to say for Gary," he said. "To come to Chelsea after the season we had last year, fit in and play the games he did against Barcelona and then the (Champions League) final he has proven he is a top centre half in world football. Internationally he can go on and play for a long time."

Liverpool's England captain Steven Gerrard is angry over their growing injury list. But Gerrard does not blame Belgium player Dries Mertens whose push on Chelsea defender Gary Cahill during Saturday's international at Wembley led to him colliding with Joe Hart and suffering a double fracture of the jaw. Gerrard said: "Losing Gary is a massive blow. "His performances in the last six months have been colossal for Chelsea. He was a colossus in the Champions League final win over Bayern Munich. We needed him. "I am angry because we have lost some big players with a tournament eight or nine days away. "That's the blow and that's the price you pay for these warm-up games. "To do well in these tournaments you have to have your big players and to lose Gary is another huge blow on the back of Frank Lampard and Gareth Barry." But, as regards the challenge by Mertens, Gerrard said: "I don't think you can blame the guy because he was itching to score a goal. "Maybe he got carried away but I don't think you can put an ...
The England squad selection process is an absolute farce.. Frank Lampard and Gary Cahill get injured and you replace them with Jordan Henderson and Martin Kelly???... Leaving out Champions League winners Carrick and Ferdinand, EPL champs Micah Richards and Adam Johnson. Wow.
LESSONS FROM MUNICH (3) GARY CAHILL Gary Cahill, born 19 December 1985, is an English footballer who plays as a central defender for Chelsea FC and he was part of the team that won the 2012 English Fa Cup and the Uefa Champions League on May 19 2012. Cahill began his career playing for the AFC Dronfield youth set-system before joining the Aston Villa Academy in 2000. He spent eight years at the club but was loaned out to smaller clubs for most of those years. By January 2008 he was still considered surplus to the team's requirements and was therefore sold to Bolton Wanderers for GBP 5m. His fortunes changed for better at Bolton, his game improved considerably and he became the team's defensive engine room and was made the vice-captain. However, his abilities soon caught the attention of the bigger clubs and he was eventually sold to Chelsea in January 2012 for GBP 7m. Bolton Wanderers had by then found themselves in a gripping battle against relegation, a battle they eventually lost on the last day of the ...
Chelsea's British defender Gary Cahill (C) holds the trophy after the Uefa Champions League final football match between FC Bayern Muenchen and Chelsea FC on May 19, 2012 at the Fussball Arena stadium in Munich. Chelsea won 4-3 in the penalty phase.
David Luiz led the crowd through a more traditional 'Blue is the Colour', Gary Cahill announced he was going to bounce in a minute and 'Happy Birthday' was sung to penalty shoot-out hero Petr Cech who turned 30 today. Frank Lampard took the mic to say that Saturday had been the best night of the players' careers and that Chelsea was the best club in the world, before John Terry told the fans how much they deserved to win the Champions League. And then it was off to the end of the parade and a full stop on a truly historic season, with the players now away from the club until July with mix of well-earned holiday and international matches between now and then.
A Chelsea player for a little over four months, Gary Cahill is reflecting on his acquisition of two winner's medals already, a far cry from the relegation battle he exchanged for Stamford Bridge in January.
Chelsea defender Gary Cahill has urged the club to hold on to their veterans after the Champions League triumph on Saturday. Cahill believes the penalty shoot-out victory over Bayern Munich would not have been possible without the efforts of Didier Drogba, Frank Lampard and Ashley Cole. Speculation has been rife for most of the season about a summer clear-out of the Stamford Bridge 'old guard'. Reports today suggested Munich hero Drogba had already agreed a deal to join Shanghai Shenhua, but Cahill does not believe it is the end of an era at the club. "I don't see it being the end," Cahill said. "Frank Lampard was fantastic. Ashley Cole was amazing and he's probably been the best left-back in the world for many years. "Didier, again, turned up, the big man for the big occasion. You just learn from these sorts of boys, especially myself
THE DAY THE CUP WAS BROUGHT HOME The European Cup has been paraded through the streets of London for the first time in its 57-year history as many thousands of fans, some of whom had made it back from Munich in time plus others who watched the game on television in the UK, lined the streets of Fulham as an open-top bus made its way from Stamford Bridge to Parson's Green. The blue-clad, flag-waving, whistle and horn-blowing throng had been growing for hours and matched that of 1997 when a long wait for silverware ended with an Fa Cup victory, and that of 2005 when an even longer wait for a league win came to an end. Every vantage point was filled. Parade The players and staff arrived at the Bridge from Heathrow Airport shortly before the 4pm parade start and hopped on board with the Fa Cup as well as the Champions League silverware. As with other recent parades the largest gathering was at Eel Brook Common where a big screen was located and Chelsea TV were broadcasting live. There the bus stopped for some ...
CHAMPIONS CHAT Posted on: Sun 20 May 2012 What a night. As the celebrations continued way into the evening, the newly-crowned European champions gave their verdict on what it all meant to them. Here are a selection of quotes from some of the Chelsea heroes, with more to follow as the dust settles on our first ever Champions League success. Petr Cech 'Finally. It's been eight years. We lost four years ago and we hoped for another chance. The chance came and in a moment when nobody expected it. We grabbed the chance. 'There were six penalties and I went the right way all the time, and saved three, so I was well prepared. 'This is amazing, it's incredible we finally got it. 'I said prior to the game that if we win the Cup I don't want a cake, and this is the best present I can get. It's a dream come true.' Gary Cahill 'When I picked up the injury against Barcelona I feared I wouldn't make the game but I am thankful to the staff that got David and me back. 'It's absolutely amazing. The team has stuck together ...

Gary Cahill: 6 months at Chelsea and he's Won the Fa Cup and Champions League...Robin Van Persie: 7yrs at Arsenal, 0 Trophies! Food 4 thought, its not how far but how Well Congrats CHELSEA!!
Barca could not break them; neither could suspensions, including John Terry’s; nor playing Bayern on their home patch; nor going behind with seven minutes left. Having somehow dug out an equaliser to force extra-time through - who else? - Didier Drogba, Chelsea would not be shaken by a further trauma: when Drogba tripped Franck Ribery to concede a penalty, Petr Cech plunged magnificently to stop Arjen Robben’s spot kick. The 30 minutes of extra-time were like the 90 minutes preceding them: Bayern in possession, on the attack, but Chelsea - with Gary Cahill making an extraordinary diving block to thwart Mario Gomez - somehow still on terms. Then came that old enemy, the penalty shootout. Chelsea don’t win those; the Germans never lose them. Except there has been something other-worldly about this campaign in general and Chelsea in the Champions League particularly. Logic was not among the participants of season 2011-12.

New England manager Roy Hodgson believes that it would be foolish to write Chelsea off ahead of the Champions League final in Munich. Hodgson would have been at the Allianz Arena anyway in his capacity as a member of UEFA's technical study group, but is now attending in his new official capacity. Hodgson will no doubt have an eye on the three likely members of Chelsea's starting line-up - Ashley Cole, Gary Cahill and Frank Lampard - to face Bayern Munich. Hodgson has seen the assessments of how one-sided this final is reportedly going to be, but disagrees based on his knowledge of Chelsea and their performance in this year's tournament. "It will be a lot closer than some of the pundits are predicting. Most people are writing Chelsea off but I don't see them as underdogs at all," Hodgson told the official FA website. "They have done extremely well to get to the final, they eliminated the favourites to win the tournament with two splendid performances. If they get anywhere close to those performances they h ...

Summary Fernando Torres hit a first Chelsea hat-trick as we stormed to a monumental win against our relegation-threatened rivals. After sealing our place in the Champions League final with his late goa lagainst Barcelona, Torres struck three times against QPR to help us to our best ever win against our neighbours from White City. The scoring was opened inside a minute by Daniel Sturridge's right foot, and captain John Terry headed a second after 12 before Torres took over with numbers three, four and five, his third a calm finish from 10 yards just after the hour. Florent Malouda, on as a sub, completed the Chelsea scoring with 13 minutes to go, before Djibril Cisse struck a late consolation for QPR. This victory ahead of Tottenham's game with Blackburn puts us above the north Londoners and right back into the top four race, while continuing the incredible momentum built up under Roberto Di Matteo. All in all, not a bad week to be a Chelsea fan, with Newcastle to come on Wednesday. Team news Just five day ...
Who is Chelsea’s Player of the Season? Goal.com names the top three stand-out performers for the Blues in 2011-12 and then declares the overall winner. Have your say below! May 2, 2012 9:00:00 AM Juan Mata, Chelsea This season was supposed to be the start of a new era at Stamford Bridge under the guidance of Andre Villas-Boas , who arrived fresh from guiding Porto to Europa League success and was handed the chance to overhaul an ageing Chelsea side. Juan Mata , Romelu Lukaku , Oriol Romeu and Raul Meireles all arrived at the club with fans hopeful of challenging for silverware. But the Blues stuttered their way through the first half of the season, losing a number of matches and finding themselves well off the blistering pace set by the two Manchester clubs at the top of the table. However, unlike both United and City, they scraped through to the knock-out stages of the Champions League. Gary Cahill arrived in January with the aim of shoring up a leaky defence seemingly struggling to come to terms with ...
Chelsea's Gary Cahill a major doubt for Champions League final • Injury adds to crisis in central defence with suspensions • Hopes that David Luiz can return to face Bayern Munich
Roberto Di Matteo admits Gary Cahill's fitness remains a cause of concern ahead of the Champions League final.
ReaCTION: BRIMMING WITH BELIEF As the team continued its sprint finish down the home straight of this season, Roberto Di Matteo admitted the record 6-1 win over Queens Park Rangers matched his hopes more than his expectations. 'The vanquishing of Barcelona couldn't help but be fresh in minds and its effect on legs meant the interim first team coach again named a much-changed side, this time making six changes to the team sheet from Tuesday night's game in Spain. The Blues have done pretty well off the back of Champions League matches this season and nothing but a win on this return to league action would have sufficed. The response was emphatic - our biggest win ever over QPR. 'After a Champions League game midweek it always proves difficult in the next game in the Premier League,' acknowledged Di Matteo, 'and I am very pleased with the way we played and the result. 'I have to say the team surprised me as well and I wasn't expecting, I was hoping that we would really put a great performance in today. 'Eve ...
