Chelsea have lifted 10 major trophies since 2010, including the Champions League which is the joint-most by an English club.

Chelsea skipper Cesar Azpilicueta joined the club in 2012 and has lifted silverware in five of his seven full seasons as a Blue.

The Spaniard who recently marked his 100th game captaining the club by scoring against Brighton, has admitted that winning trophies is in Chelsea’s DNA.

“I think one of the characteristics of Chelsea throughout this period has been winning trophies and even when we didn’t win something, we didn’t have any long spells without lifting a trophy,” Azpilicueta told Chelsea magazine.

“That’s obviously a big part of the ambition of the club, to always aim for trophies, and it’s something we have done not only in England, but also in Europe, with the Champions League and the Europa League twice.

“We have won the Premier League a couple of times since I arrived as well, so I think it’s in our DNA that we always fight for trophies and hopefully we can keep going in this direction.”

Azpilicueta has won two Europa League titles, two Premier League titles, one League Cup and one FA Cup crown since joining the club.
