Chelsea fans on Twitter slam Gary Cahill for unconvincing showing against Derby County

Chelsea fans haven’t held back on laying into club-captain Gary Cahill for a rather forgettable performance against Derby County in the Carabao Cup on Wednesday.

The Blues welcomed Frank Lampard back to Stamford Bridge but were soon heaping the criticism on Cahill after slipping in defence that led in Jack Marriot to score the Rams’ opening goal in the ninth minute.

Although Chelsea claimed a 3-2 win in the end, the defender looked vulnerable with the ball at his feet, giving away a few risky passes, while in defence him and Andreas Christensen were far from their best.

The 32-year-old Cahill has mostly been seen on Maurizio Sarri’s bench this season with only one Premier League appearance so far while Antonio Rudiger and David Luiz have been the manager’s preferred choice of centre-backs.

Here are some of the Twitter reactions by Chelsea fans:
