Cahill Admits Chelsea's Performance Wasn't Good Enough

Cahill Admits Chelsea's Performance Wasn't Good Enough

Reading through the Match Day Moments thread, there were a great number of comments left querying as to whether Antonio Conte had picked the correct back three.

Some of those comments were also suggesting that Gary Cahill shouldn`t be in the side, but that`s a matter of opinion.

But, following the defeat at the hands of Crystal Palace, Cahill didn`t shy away from speaking to the media and our captain had this to say about what happened at Selhurst Park,

"The performance level today was not up to the standard it should be. We played poorly today, for whatever reason.

"We've had many international players who have been away but that's part and parcel of modern football. We need to be ready, we needed to be more lively, we were missing out on second balls. That's unlike us.

"We're not having the best of luck in terms of injuries - you saw Victor Moses today - and we`ve not got the biggest squad. But it needed to be a better performance today.

"We need to win games like this, and in terms of the title after Christmas we need to be there or thereabouts. We are disappointed by the result and disappointed in the quality of our performance.

"Listen, the best thing to do now is to play again as soon as possible. We can do better than that and we're very disappointed."

If representatives from Roma saw us play today, I bet they`re quaking in their boots!

Cahill didn't get to pick himself, so I won't blame him for coming to play today

Everyone in that team today deserves criticism, starting from Conte.

Stop making excuses Cahill - international duties injured players etc it happens to many other clubs. It’s not your fault you were selected to play.
