Chelsea defender Cesar Azpilicueta filled in at the right wing-back position and scored a goal as Chelsea defeated Watford 4-3 at Stamford Bridge on Monday night.
When asked about Azpilicueta’s performance, Conte said: “It is a massive season for him.
“He has played in a fantastic way and when you have this type of player it is massive for the club. If I ask him to play in goal he is ready.
“He is a model footballer and can play in different roles. He played in wing-back, scored one goal and could have scored more.
“He is having a great season.”
