Chelsea youngster Billy Gilmour has revealed the toughest trainer in the Chelsea team, and for Gilmour, it’s no other than the Blues captain Cesar Azpilicueta.

“In training Azpilicueta trains like how he plays,” he said during a live stream on Twitch.

“He’s really high tempo, he’s always working hard in training.”

Meanwhile, the Blues skipper has been rated as the club’s most underrated player this season.

“Captain, leader…legend? We’ll leave that up to you,” 90min said of Azpilicueta.

“One thing that is for sure is that Azpilicueta is a world-class defender and with ​Chelsea now having a very youthful look about them, the Spaniard’s role has become even more important.

“He has missed just two league games this season, underlining his importance to the team. With Reece James beginning to force his way into the starting lineup, such is Azpilicueta’s ability and understanding of the game, he has often shifted over to play left back numerous times.

“Not to mention, he has also popped up with a few important goals and assists this season, as well.”
