That’s according to pundit Garth Crooks.
The Blues are still three points clear at the summit of the Premier League table after their 1-0 victory over West Brom.
Antonio Conte’s men have now won nine games on the spin, conceding just two goals in that stretch.
“Another clean sheet for Chelsea and a captain’s performance by Cahill”
Garth Crooks on Chelsea star Gary Cahill
And Crooks has hailed England international Cahill, claiming he has become a true leader in the heart of Chelsea’s defence.
“Nine wins on the trot for the Blues suggests a Premier League title could be calling for Gary Cahill and his team-mates once more,” Crooks told the BBC.
“The Chelsea captain was superb against a disciplined and well-organised West Brom side – a point Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola might want to consider.
“It was obvious that David Luiz was still suffering from the effects of last week’s appalling challenge from Sergio Aguero, however the Brazilian was determined to play but needed some care and attention at the back and he got it from his skipper.
“Cahill covered everything and took charge of a situation that normally Luiz would have handled. Another clean sheet for Chelsea and a captain’s performance by Cahill.”
