England defender Gary Cahill is reportedly set to stay and fight for his place at Chelsea after reports suggesting an overseas move emerged, leaving supporters reacting on social media.

Cahill captained the side last season and for the majority of the 2016/17 campaign while John Terry was out with injury. Turkish reports claim Galatasaray are interested in signing the player, with former club Aston Villa also interested in him. "Those two players can attack and also defend as well".

If United are to be battered by most teams this season, they may as well do it in a good strip, I guess.

Chelsea have had this odd "one season on, one season off" history for the last few years in the Premier League.

That is despite the fact Cahill may find the captaincy given to either César Azpilicueta or Eden Hazard on a long-term basis, with Sarri still considering who to make his full-time captain. It is not so easy in this period because we play only once a week, but I have told the team in this month they have to be patient. "So I think that, at this moment, he needs to have a lot more defensive training with us." said Sarri when asked about dropping Cahill from their squad. "And that he is very important for us".

As for Drinkwater, the former Leicester midfielder also wants to remain at Stamford Bridge but faces a tough ask to force his way into a midfield now occupied by Jorginho, N'Golo Kante and Mateo Kovacic.

But the Chelsea star refused to back down and netted the Blues opener from the penalty spot during a man-of-the-match display at St. James Park.

If the situation remains unaltered, he will have to spend time warming the bench.
