Just before the highly anticipated game between Tottenham and Chelsea, Blues boss Frank Lampard vowed not to say much about the game but put all his focus on training.

Lampard had vowed that the team spent the past week working very hard on the training ground, and the resultant effect was a 2-0 win over Tottenham.

Chelsea skipper Cesar Azpilicueta who tirelessly gave his all playing as a right wing-back has now revealed that Chelsea’s secret weapon was the work that was done in training.

Azpilicueta reveals his excitement at getting the win as he said after the game: “Amazing. It feels very good for us, for the fans, to come here and win after the run we have had.

“We prepared very well in the week, and we knew we had to rediscover our fighting spirit. We fought and then we played some very good football. We kept a clean sheet as well, and we are very happy about that.”

Speaking about the racist abuse targeted at Chelsea defender Antonio Rudiger, Azpilicueta had reported the incident to the referee, and he said after the game:

“We have been told to report any racist abuse to the referee. Tony told me there had been some racist songs towards him, so I told the referee straight away and left it to him to do his job.

“We are very concerned and very aware of this behaviour, and all together we need to stop it. It’s an issue in life, not only football.”
