Gary Cahill’s brilliant tackle on Joe Allen during Chelsea’s 2-1 win over Liverpool [GIFs]

The chatter since Chelsea’s 2-1 win over Liverpool has been dominated by the controversial moments.

But, there was plenty to admire from both sides at Stamford Bridge on Sunday, not least a wonder tackle from Gary Cahill on Joe Allen in the first half.

Cahill, one of the most underrated defenders in the Premier League and a player who could be absolutely crucial for England at the World Cup in the summer, has made a habit of last-ditch saving tackles, that Chelsea captain John Terry would be proud of.

It was not only a glorious challenge but came at a crucial time in the game, with the score 1-1 and came 10 minutes before Samuel Eto’o would put Chelsea 2-1 up.
