‘Worst ever’, ‘Horrid’ – Chelsea fans slaughter one player after first-half display v Roma

Chelsea fans took to Twitter to slaughter Gary Cahill for his first-half display in their Champions League clash against Roma.

Two goals from Stephan El Shaarawy put the Italian club 2-0 up at half-time of the showdown in Rome to give the visitors a mountain to climb in the second period.

Cahill returned to the Chelsea starting XI after being omitted at the weekend when they secured a 1-0 Premier League win against Bournemouth.

The England international was selected on the right side of a three-man defence that also included David Luiz and Antonio Rudiger, flanked by wing-back pair Cesar Azpilicueta and Marcos Alonso.

Cahill was not directly at fault for either of El Shaarawy’s goals, which came after 42 seconds through a brilliant strike and then an opportunist goal after a Rudiger error.

But Chelsea fans took to social media en masse to lay into their 31-year-old most senior central defender.

We have rounded up some of the best tweets:


  1. that game had absolutely nothing to do with cahill that was just a very performance from Chelsea lets hope to improve before sunday against munchester united.

  2. We talk of the defenders leaving the attackers on safe side, while they did nothing to keep opponents far from our box, the whole team is at fault, thanks to the goal keeper otherwise it could be even 6 goals.
