Azpilicueta says victory over Stoke City will be vital for Chelsea

by -

Chelsea defender Cesar Azpilicueta has no doubt that the best way to forget about the defeat against West Ham will be the victory against Stoke City in the fourth round of the League Cup.

The Spaniard has urged his team to forget about Saturday’s defeat and to concentrate on Tuesday’s match against Stoke City. According to his words victory in the fourth round of the League Cup may be a turnaround for Chelsea.

Azpilicueta told Chelsea’s official website:

“We want to play again as soon as possible, because we need to win some games and so the match against Stoke comes at a good time,”
“We have to recover from this defeat [at West Ham] as quickly as possible, and our mentality has to be to win and get through to the next round. Nothing less than that is good enough.”
“The performance against Watford was not one I recognised to be perfectly honest,”
“But the good thing is that we have a big game on Tuesday against Chelsea, and that is the perfect game for us. We can get back on track.”
