Cesar Azpilicueta has become an integral part of the Chelsea team and he proved how vital he is once again during Saturday’s Premier League clash against Liverpool.
The Spaniard made some crucial blocks and timely interceptions to deny the Reds at Anfield.
The Blues did end up conceding as Mohamed Salah put the hosts ahead in the second half, but Willian found an equaliser with what appeared to be an intended cross to the far post.
Since Antonio Conte took over as manager at Stamford Bridge, Azpilicueta has been a regular member of a defensive three.
The former Marseille player has been consistently strong for Chelsea and the fans are quick to recognise the importance of having the Spaniard in the team.
After the final whistle at Anfield, Azpilicueta tweeted his post-match thoughts, and the fans were quick to comment.
