Chelsea beat Bournemouth 1-0 on Wednesday night in a Carabao Cup quarterfinal game and will now play Tottenham over two legs in the semifinal.
Our first loss of the season was the 3-1 loss to Tottenham last month in Wembley and Cesar Azpilicueta admits the loss was very tough.
Azpilicueta admits Chelsea were poor in the loss to Tottenham and has warned about such performance happening again when we play Tottenham.
“Obviously after the loss of a few weeks ago, you always have it inside and you want to turn it around,” Azpilicueta said.
“We have the chance to qualify for a final, we play a derby over two legs so we will try everything to get through.
“That loss was very tough. From the first minute to the last we were really bad. They were better than us.
“We cannot let this happen again. We have to improve.
“After that game we understood what we can improve on and obviously when the game gets closer, we will study them more and try to get better because the game we played that day was not acceptable.”
Chelsea are facing a UEFA investigation after some supporters sang an alleged anti-semitic chant that referred to Tottenham as ‘Yids’ during the 2-2 draw with Vidi in Hungary.
Azpilicueta has urged Chelsea fans to be on their best behaviour when Chelsea play Tottenham in the Carabao Cup semifinal.
Azpilicueta said: “It’s a massive game for everyone. We have to show how we are personally as a club. Hopefully we can show how we are, how we behave.”
