Chelsea captain Cesar Azpilicueta sent a special message to former Chelsea captain Gary Cahill as he returned to Stamford Bridge with Crystal Palace.

Cahill spent seven years at Stamford Bridge, winning the Premier League, FA Cup (twice), League Cup, Champions League and Europa League (twice), with Cahill captaining the Blues on 79 occasions.

Azpilicueta, who took the captain armband permanently from Cahill following his Chelsea exit, wrote a message for Cahill in the matchday programme: “Gaz my friend, I know it’s a special day for you to come back to your home – the place where you enjoyed all those amazing moments with the fans and where you left great memories for all of us.

“It will be great to see you, but as soon as the ball is kicked, I know we will both be looking only to win the game for our teams.”
