Chelsea defender Cesar Azpilicueta was part of the Chelsea backline that lost to Tottenham, and the Spaniard admitted afterwards that Chelsea went to White Hart Lane to take all 3 points.

He said: “We were expecting to win the game but we go away with zero points so obviously we are disappointed, so we have to learn from this and come back stronger.

“It is difficult to analyse straight after the game, it is better to have time to do that, with the manager and the staff, and then improve on what we didn’t do well. When you lose you can improve a lot of things but even when we had the 13 games in a row we were analysing and trying to improve. This was a tough night but we have to learn from this and to come back strong.”

Chelsea is more than just a football club to me; it's a passion I share, and my affinity with the Chelsea badge is one that will last forever. As far as watching my favourite team is concerned, I'd rather miss a meal than miss a Chelsea game.
