Chelsea skipper Cesar Azpilicueta has had reduced playing time this season due to the fine form of academy product Reece James.

Azpilicueta was given a start in the Champions League clash against Sevilla, and Azpilicueta held his own at right-back and did a good job at that.

Chelsea fans were very pleased with the performance of Azpilicueta and made sure that they appreciated him on social media.

Speaking after the game, Azpilicueta admitted that he was pleased with the performance of the team.

“I think there were plenty of things to be proud of,” said Azpilicueta.

“We’re really pleased with how we performed against a team who are the Europa League champions and have some great strengths.

“We managed to dominate the game, which isn’t easy against a team of their calibre and with their top-level experience. Even though we were under pressure from time to time, we always kept that control, and that helped us win the match.”
