Chelsea's Eto'o subject of Cahill praise

Chelsea defender Gary Cahill has spoken in a very complimentary manner towards teammate Samuel Eto'o.

The Cameroonian striker netted a hat-trick as the Blues beat Manchester United 3-1 on Sunday and his performance was certainly not lost on Cahill.

"This hat-trick is going to do his confidence the world of good," Cahill said.

"He is a top, top player, a great performer. He's been involved in massive games in the past.

"It's great to have a player of that ability - with all his experience - in our squad."

Since joining Chelsea from Anzhi Makhachkala in the summer, the former Inter Milan, Barcelona and Real Mallorca forward has scored eight goals in 20 outings in all competitions.
