The Spain international defender has been one of the Blues most consistent player in recent years and he performed brilliantly once again when called to duty on Sunday.

And the Spanish striker was glad to be assisted by his Country mate as the Blues claimed a vital 1-0 win over their English Premier League title rivals at the Bridge.
Talking to Sky Sports after the match, Alvaro Morata said: “It is for sure the most important goal I [Alvaro Morata] have scored for the team [Chelsea].
“I [Alvaro Morata] told [Cesar] Azpilicueta before the match I [Morata] need a pass like this and he made it [assisted].”
The striker will be expecting to play for the Blues when they return to English Premier League duty after the next weekend’s international break with a tie with West Bromwich Albion.
