Gary Cahill may have hit his last run of luck last season under former boss Antonio Conte. The veteran England defender has found game hard to come by this season under 60-year-old manager Maurizio Sarri.
With only one Premier League appearance under his belt this campaign, Cahill looks set to be dropped eventually by Chelsea when the new season finally takes shape.
Boss Sarri has refused to give the 33-year-old a chance, sticking adamantly to his consistent back four of: Antonio Rudiger, David Luiz, Caesar Azpilicueta and Marcos Alonso.
Chelsea travel to Craven Cottage on Sunday to take on Cottagers Fulham.
Chelsea could move just one point within rivals Arsenal if they can pip Fulham who recently gave Claudio Ranieri the boot after just four months in the job.
But Sarri has described the encounter as tough given the new change in the driver’s seat for Fulham.
Scott Parker has been handed the reins of the outfit, and the former player could sprinkle some motivation on the players, a situation Sarri has described could making winning come hard.
Cahill however, will not make it into the starting line-up and his future at Chelsea still remains bleak at the moment.
According to Sarri, “there are some problems for the new contract. You have to ask the club I think.”
