The 32-year-old was guilty of giving the ball away and slipping to allow Jack Marriott to score
Gary Cahill seems to be enduring the sort of fall from grace veteran sports stars fear will eventually happen when their time at the top is up.
Having already asked for a transfer away due to a lack of playing time, the England international must have already begun to fear his days at Stamford Bridge were up.
Now 32, there is no denying he could certainly do a job for many Premier League sides, but the former Bolton Wanderers man looks out of his depth playing in Maurizio Sarri’s new look side.
On Wednesday night, the Chelsea veteran criminally played a risky pass into midfield while the Blues were camped inside their own half against Derby County in the Carabao Cup.
Old boy Frank Lampard has drilled his troops to press from the front like some of the best sides and duly swarmed the pensive Tom Huddlestone.
With Cahill now the last line of defence, he inexplicably slipped and allowed Jack Marriott a clear route to goal to score the Rams’ first equaliser in what proved to be a pulsating clash.
The centre-half was subsequently torn to shreds on Twitter by some unforgiving Chelsea fans, with user even suggesting Sarri sell him in the January window.
