Gary Cahill’s reaction to the statement that he will lose his place to Andreas Christensen

Chelsea defender Gary Cahill is clearly not worried about losing his place to Andreas Christensen next season after responding to trolls on Twitter.

The England international captained the Blues for much of their 2016/17 title-winning campaign, but continues to be something of a divisive figure among the club’s fans.

Cahill started the season poorly with some high-profile individual errors and general sloppy performances in a draw with Swansea City and defeats to Liverpool and Arsenal.

However, he improved since then and became a crucial part of Antonio Conte’s rock-solid side, despite speculation heading into the summer that the Italian wants to sign another centre-back.

Chelsea will also welcome back highly-rated youngster Christensen in that position after a highly impressive two-season loan at Borussia Monchengladbach, prompting one Chelsea fan to tweet Cahill telling him he’d end his Stamford Bridge career.

Cahill gave a simple reply that spoke volumes, however, simply responding with the laughing face emoji.

Cahill has had something of a tough time on the popular social media site anyway this week, following a poor performance for England in their 3-2 friendly defeat to France.

But he’s having none of it, and also gave the perfect response to another of his critics by simply uploading a photo of himself smiling with the Premier League trophy.

The message here is clear: don’t throw shade at Gary Cahill without expecting your fair share thrown back at you.

Still, will Conte continue to hunt for a new defender after the 31-year-old’s patchy form?
