Cesar Azpilicueta scored the decisive goal in Chelsea’s 2-1 victory over Lille on Tuesday night.

Tammy Abraham had fired us in front against Lille at Stamford Bridge with his 13th goal of the season before Azpilicueta headed in a second before half-time.

Reflecting on Chelsea’s victory over Lille that sealed qualification to the last-16, Azpilicueta said: “It was very important to have a reaction from Saturday’s game.

“We started very well and scored two goals but in the second half we didn’t find our rhythm. We could still have scored more goals but we didn’t and in the end we had to suffer.

“It has been happening a lot lately where we play much better than the score suggests and at 2-1 we had to suffer in the last minutes because obviously we needed to win. I hope we can finish the games earlier and enjoy them more.”
