‘No One Deserves A Champions League More’ ‘He’s Never Out Of Form’ Fans Single Out Chelsea Star For Praise

A number of Chelsea players were praised for their excellent performances in the FA Cup semi-final against Manchester City at the weekend, but captain Cesar Azpilciueta’s own display was somewhat overlooked.

The Spaniard did start the game sloppily, and he was beaten for pace by Gabriel Jesus which led to Kepa having to make a save, but he grew into the match. After the Blues went 1-0 up, he was superb at snuffing out danger, including a great piece of defending that stopped Raheem Sterling in his tracks.

Azpilicueta’s consistency is one of his standout attributes and some supporters on Twitter have recognised the 31-year-old’s contribution to Thomas Tuchel side’s improved defensive organisation:

Since Tuchel’s arrival in January, Azpilicueta has only failed to start two out of 19 matches, and those came in the earlier rounds of the FA Cup. When he has been named in the starting lineup, Chelsea have kept an extremely impressive 12 clean sheets.
