Cahill Picks up Minor Injury!

Cahill Picks up Minor Injury!

Let`s hope it isn`t anything serious!

After our more than decent start to the new Premier League season, a start where we find ourselves sat, proudly, on top of the pile with maximum points from three games, the last thing we needed was an enforced international break.

Jose Mourinho will be anxious that those players who have departed for international duty all return safely and are fit and available for our next game.

Last night at Wembley, where the crowd were either playing hide-and-seek or were doing a damn fine job of turning up in fancy dress as seats, Jose would have watched on (if he could manage to stay awake like the rest of us) whilst Gary Cahill battled on at the heart of the England defence.

However, Jose would have been none too impressed to see Cahill limping with what appeared to be an ankle injury.

The word from the England camp is that it is nothing serious and that Cahill should be fit for the EURO 2016 qualifier against Switzerland, on Monday.

But, a little part of me, nay a big part of me, wouldn`t be too upset if the injury turned out to be enough to rule him out of contention but will have sufficiently healed to allow him to play for Chelsea next weekend.

Does any one else buy into my thought patterns?

Look we need Gaz, but Ivanovic can slot in with Luis coming in at LB and Azpi at RB if necessary. Iva could play as a striker and score a hattrick right now, with the way he is playing.

what Cahill was doing on the pitch in 84th minute in a friendly kickabout is beyoind my comprehension considering Jagielka was on the bench. Hogson shoulld not ruin our season please... Hope He does not play in that qualifiers though

Hopefully he's left out of the Swiss game. Jagielka and Stones can play at CB.
