‘Mr Reliable’ ‘Love Him, What A Professional’ Chelsea Fans On Twitter Praise 30 Year Old Following Lille Display

Chelsea made hard work of progressing to the knockout stages of the Champions League last night but one player who stood out in the 2-1 win against Lille was Cesar Azpilicueta.

The 30-year-old was reinstated at right-back following a few games on the opposite flank, and he made a telling contribution by heading in the second goal from a corner.

Fans on Twitter have been praising Azpilicueta’s dependability and work ethic:

In the long term, supporters would like to see Reece James take Azpilicueta’s place in the side, but the youngster could learn a thing or two from his captain.

The fullback is a reliable leader in the side, who manager Frank Lampard can count on, and while he may not offer so much in the attacking third of the pitch, he more than makes up for it with his defensive qualities.

Whether he will be moved back to left-back to make room for James against Bournemouth this weekend, we shall have to wait and see.
