“It was a great finish from Christian and he showed great composure when he was in front of the goal,” Azpilicueta told Chelsea’s official website.

“He took the best decision when he was on the ball and when he is off the ball, he makes intelligent runs which are hard to defend against.

“He is an amazing player. He came here from another country, he is growing and improving with every game and I’m very pleased for him to get his goal because he is a very important player for the team.”
