Table toppers, Chelsea took a huge boast to their title chances by beating in form Stoke City to go 13 points clear at the summit of the Premier League.
At first, they look set to miss the chance to extend their lead, but Cahill atoned for giving away a penalty by pouncing after a tactical switch from Antonio Conte to pile more pressure on Tottenham, Manchester City and Liverpool – all of whom play on Sunday.
With the teams level after 70 minutes, Conte – who was without star forward Eden Hazard due to a reported muscle injury – changed his much-vaunted 3-4-3 formation to a 4-2-3-1 and Chelsea responded by upping the pressure to force a late winner.
