Cesar Azpilicueta is probably the most versatile defender in the Chelsea team. He has played everywhere in the Chelsea backline, from left-back to centre-back, and he has been outstanding.

The 27-year-old puts it down to his experiences during his younger days.

“When I was a kid I was a striker, then I started to be a winger and defender sometimes,” said Azpilicueta, who has played right-back, left-back and now centre-back for the Blues. “In the Osasuna academy I played as a striker and even as a central midfielder or right-back.

“I never complained about my position. I am ready for whatever position the manager wants.”
