Chelsea defender Cesar Azpilicueta has been one of Chelsea’s best players and even among the best defenders in the league this season.

The 27-year-old’s versatility has been a plus for Antonio Conte, and everyone who has worked with him keep saying one thing – Cesar is the hardest worker in training and a true professional.

The Spaniard has played every single minute for Chelsea this season, and this only shows how indispensable he has been in Chelsea’s title win.

Conte couldn’t help but praise the Spaniard who could yet start again in Chelsea’s last league game on Sunday.

He said: “It’s incredible to have a player playing every single minute in this league. Unbelievable.

“It means Azpi is a great player and a champion on, and off the pitch. When you do this and you haven’t an injury, you are able to play every single minute, it means you are great on and above all off the pitch. This is a great achievement for him.”
