    Cahill race: Chelsea steal a march on Man U

    "Chelsea could do with some reinforcement at the back"

    Same applies to Man U too, who may be one injury to Rio away from being exposed badly at the back.

    The current centre-back cover of either Smalling and Evans or Smalling and Jones doesn't exactly instill fear into the oppositions's attack (imo) especially in the big games away from OT. Remember Man U have many these games in the 2nd half of the season than the other top 6 sides.

    I honestly think both CB pairings would struggle without the experience and cool heads of a senior player such as Vidic or Rio beside them, hence the need for Cahill to steady the ship until the big guns recover.
