Chelsea defender Cesar Azpilicueta insisted our rivals were waiting for Chelsea to drop points against Manchester City but the win over Manchester City proved Chelsea have mental toughness.
“It was a massive game after the defeat on Saturday,” Azpilicueta said.
“I’m sure our rivals were waiting for us to drop that mental strength and lose points again.
“We feel the pressure because we know it’s only a month and a half to the end of the season and we are in the best position to be in.
“We were disappointed to lose three points at home to Palace but we recovered and coped really well.
“We came back in a strong way against a really tough team. We showed character and we worked really hard.”
