Ahead of Tuesday’s Champions League game against Lille at Stamford Bridge, Chelsea captain Cesar Azpilicueta has admitted the Blues must improve at both ends of the pitch.

“Defence is an area where we have to improve, but we are not strong enough in both boxes right now,” Azpilicueta said.

“We are conceding a lot and when we arrive in the dangerous areas, we are not clinical enough to score our chances.

“It’s a major problem because in ­football the key is to be clinical in both boxes and at the moment we are not, so we have to work on that.”
