Chelsea captain Cesar Azpilicueta has revealed the secret behind Chelsea’s impressive 2-0 victory over Tottenham on Sunday.

According to Azpilicueta, the team’s great spirit was the secret behind the impressive victory over Tottenham.

“Following the international break we were not finding the consistency to win games,” the 30-year-old told Chelsea’s official website.

“We have been conceding a lot of goals, we did not win points, it is a fact that we lost many games for Chelsea and now we have come to Tottenham to play a team that were in good form and we showed great spirit, we fought and we know what it means for the fans and for all of us. That spirit made a huge difference in the game.

“It feels very good for us, for the fans, to come here and win after a run that was not the best, and to keep a clean sheet. It is a very good win.

“We prepared very well during the week, we knew that we were coming to play against a tough team but we did our job, we knew that we had to recover that fighting spirit and that it was a London derby with what that means to everybody in Chelsea.

“We did very well, with the quality we have in the team like with Willian with these two goals and every piece of football he did in the game was amazing. We fought and we played some very good football. It is due to the whole team doing an amazing job and I am very happy with it.”
