Former Chelsea skipper John Terry was a high scoring defender during his playing career, and the Blues have also had the likes of Branislav Ivanovic who always popped up with some important goals during his time at the Bridge.

Current skipper Cesar Azpilicueta is enjoying his best ever tally at the club with four goals already, which could have been six had VAR not ruled out his goals against Liverpool and Bayern Munich.

Azpilicueta has revealed that the improvement in his goalscoring is a product of the training ground.

“I have improved at my movement attacking set-plays,” he told the official Chelsea website.

“For most of my career I was not going up for attacking set-plays, but a few years ago I started, and then you improve. At training I work on my movements, getting in to the right spaces.

“I have a determination as well. To be hungry is very important, because I’m not the tallest. I’m pleased to score goals, even if it’s not my main job.”

We’d be hoping for more special goals from the skipper in upcoming big clashes coming at the Bridge.
