Cesar Azpilicueta is Chelsea’s Mr Reliable. He’s barely out of form, rarely has injury problems, rarely has a bad game and can play in different positions.

He started life under Antonio Conte as a left-back in a 4-2-3-1 system and then moved to the right side of a back three and flourished for the remainder of the campaign as we won the league with two games to spare and reached the FA Cup final.

The 27-year-old also featured as a wing-back at some point and has reiterated his willingness to perform wherever required and help the team.

He said: “Last season I played really comfortably in that central position and the manager asked me to stay there.

“He’s helped me a lot and obviously when you win you get the assurance and you are happier.

“I’m happy to play anywhere the manager asks me to play. It’s true that last season I played in many positions, but I’m happy to help the team in whichever way the manager requires.”

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.
