Gary Cahill helped Chelsea move to the top of their Champions League group with an early goal in their 4-0 win over Maccabi Tel Aviv.
Cahill started a four goal run for the Blues in what was a dominant performance from Chelsea. This is now two games in a row that the Blues have showed improvement, and one wonders how they'll perform this weekend against rivals Tottenham. Cahill is expected to keep his starting spot after a good match against Tel-Aviv today and with John Terry picking up an injury in the encounter. Nov 24 - 7:01 PM

Gary Cahill and John Terry are battling for Chelsea's center-back starting spot alongside Kurt Zouma.

It seems that Zouma has won himself a starting job with his speed and versatility and that leaves Cahill and Terry to battle for the spot next to him. Neither Cahill nor Terry provide much in the fantasy game, especially with Chelsea's defense struggling quite a bit lately, so we don't recommend using either one in fantasy.

Gary Cahill may have a broken nose after getting hit in the head by Barcelona's goalkeeper yesterday.

Jose Mourinho confirmed that Gary Cahill may have a broken nose but mentioned that he should be good to go for Sunday's match regardless of the results. If it is broken, Cahill will get a mask tomorrow to be ready for the match against Arsenal. He is very probable for the week one match against Swansea.

Gary Cahill scored the equalizer in Chelsea's 2-2 match against Barcelona, simultaneously taking a punch from the Barcelona goalkeeper.

Cahill was hit fairly hard as he went up to score the second Chelsea goal and was bleeding badly. He had to leave the match, but we are assuming he would have been left in if this was a competitive game. We'll wait for an update just in case, but assume he should be OK heading into week one. Cahill is looking at another season as Chelsea's starting central defender alongside John Terry and is a good fantasy option as part of the best Premier League defense. The match is now headed to penalties.

Gary Cahill was f I rtunate to avoid being penalized as he blocked an Arsenal shot with an extended arm in the nil-nil draw at the Emirates.

There were three potential first half penalties, two for the Blues and one for Arsenal, but none were called. There were some OK chances both ways but mostly it was a cagey affair as Chelsea again conceded possession and defended stoutly against a top challenger. The draw brings the Blues a step closer to the title.

Gary Cahill confirmed his knee will be OK after a clash with Chelsea midfielder John Obi Mikel this past weekend.

It seemed Cahill had lost his starting job to Kurt Zouma but then he was given the start this weekend against Aston Villa. The center-back situation now seems cloudy at Stamford Bridge, so it's hard to trust either player at the moment. Our own analyst Nik Argiropoulos believes it will be Zouma who earns the start on Wednesday, but we recommend avoiding both Zouma and Cahill until one establishes a consistent role. Both could make a fine choice in leagues where you can change your lineup up until kickoff.

Chelsea were stunned by League One Bradford City at Stamford Bridge as the allowed the Bantams to come from two goals down to win 4-2 in the Fourth Round of the FA Cup

No Premier League team has taken points from Chelsea at Stamford Bridge this season but League One club Bradford City responded to Gary Cahill and Ramires goals in the first half by scoring four unanswered to win at the Bridge. Chelsea Manager said it would be a "disgrace" if his side were to exit the competition early to lower division opposition and disgraced they were. Jon Stead, former Chelsea trainee Filipe Morais, Andy Halliday, and Mark Yeates scored for the Bantams. The magic of the FA Cup lives.

Chelsea defender Gary Cahill was given an unexpected rest day today with Kurt Zouma getting the start.

Chelsea assistant Steve Holland said after the match that Cahill had played every game over the Christmas period and the club decided to give their 20-year old a chance today. Zouma was immaculate in the start but will likely head back to the bench next week as Cahill regains his starting spot. It's worth noting Gary Cahill really struggled against Tottenham last week and this could be a sign of him getting benched instead of rested. We'll know more once we see next week's lineup.

Gary Cahill recovered well from his suffered knock earlier in the week and finished the day with 11 fantasy points.

Cahill started and played the entire match. He walked away with four passes intercepted, a shot on target, a blocked shot, and two tackles won. This is a good return for Cahill despite not getting a clean sheet and he should be a solid option for managers with Chelsea's schedule getting easier ahead.

Gary Cahill's withdrawal from the midweek match against Tottenham was just precautionary and he does not have concussion according to Jose Mourinho.

Cahill was taken off at halftime yesterday after he clashed heads with Jan Vertonghen but Mourinho insists that was just a precaution. We have reason to believe him as Chelsea looked to be in control and were up 2-0 at the time, allowing the Blues boss to take off one of his best defenders as a precaution. Kurt Zouma replaced him and finished the game strongly but he doesn't look primed for frequent playing time unless an injury occurs. With only having played 45 minutes in midweek, Cahill should start against Newcastle this weekend. Vertonghen seemed to be unaffected by the clash and finished the match.

Gary Cahill believes the experience of facing Luis Suarez and Mario Balotelli will help him in the World Cup.

Cahill has faced Balotelli during the Italian striker's time at Manchester City and has faced Luis Suarez multiple times in the Premier League. He believes the experience of facing them at club level will help when he faces both in the group stages of the World Cup. The good news for Cahill is that his Chelsea side have kept Suarez relatively quiet this season and the defender will surely be bringing some of the tactics Chelsea used at the club level into the English squad in an attempt to once again prevent Suarez from scoring.

Gary Cahill scored a goal in England's 3-0 win over Peru as the squad prepares for the 2014 FIFA World Cup.

Cahill is expected to be a starter for England in this World Cup and his solid play on Friday helped his case. The goal was one of two goals from the center-backs as Phil Jagielka scored as well. England didn't look too impressive against Peru despite winning 3-0 and they will need to improve if they want to make it out of the group. The other goal came from Daniel Sturridge who scored a fantastic strike to open up the scoring. He will be relied upon for goals this summer and will be a good choice in World Cup Fantasy.

Gary Cahill was struggling with an injury after Chelsea's game against West Brom but he returned quickly to face Manchester City in the FA Cup and is expected to play against Everton this weekend.

Chelsea's defense is best when both Cahill and John Terry are playing and the team can't afford to lose points due to defensive errors like they did against West Brom. Chelsea's clean sheet record with both Cahill and Terry on the field is impressive and it bumps up the value for all Chelsea defenders.

Gary Cahill couldn't finish the training session today because of a calf injury he picked up against West Brom.

Cahill has been ruled out for tomorrow's FA Cup clash at the Etihad and will have a scan to determine the severity of the injury. Considering the fact that he attempted to train today is a good sign and Cahill is unlikely to miss much time. Check back before the Everton clash to confirm he is back before you play him in fantasy.

Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho wants to acquire defenders Eliaquim Mangala and Marco van Ginkel.

Mangala is 22 year old Porto defender who is rated at about £20m. He can provide instant impact and has a bright future ahead of him. Marco van Ginkel is a 20 year old Dutch defender who plays for Vitesse Arnhem. He would probably cost around £8m, but doesn't have as much experience as Mangala and may not be fully ready for English football just yet.
