Deadwood: Chelsea cannot afford to carry these 2 passengers any more

Our Chelsea fans are hoping the downward spiral they seem on at the moment will sort itself soon.

Indeed, while things aren’t quite as bad as that infamous title defence under Jose Mourinho, the punters propping up our bar haven’t enjoyed the season as a whole.

Since the turn of the year, Chelsea have struggled for wins, in fact only three in total so far.

With constant rumours surrounding Antonio Conte’s future and the team somewhat playing like strangers, it seems that it’s going to take a lot for the team to turn its fortunes around in the latter part of the season.

With the fans in the bar and the board looking forward to the summer, many of them will be hoping that Chelsea can manage better in this window than the previous two, at least.

Indeed, the Blues board now runs the football club more like a business than a hobby like previous years and surely they’ll want to offload some players in a bid to balance the books.

We takes a look at two deadwood players that should be moved on in the summer…’

GARY CAHILL

The club captain is not having the best of seasons so far and stats suggest the Blues are a better team without him in it currently, an unthinkable thought prior to the start of the campaign.

Cahill has won everything during his time at the club and at the age of 32, it seems that the years may be catching up with him, much like his predecessor John Terry.

He’s had many a good year at Stamford Bridge since his move from Bolton, however, it may be time to move on as he seems to be replaced with the younger Andreas Christensen.

MICHY BATSHUAYI

Michy Batshuayi is currently on a short loan at Borussia Dortmund and is massively out of favour with Conte, with the striker looking likely to move on in the summer.

Despite his popularity on social media, Chelsea’s Italian coach has never seemed to trust the former Marseille man, however much he is proving to be a goal-getter

The Belgian hasn’t had the best of times at Stamford Bridge during his 18 months at the club and following the World Cup, he will be hoping to put himself back in the transfer spotlight.
