Chelsea defender and captain Gary Cahill was crucial in 2012 when the Blues eliminated Barcelona, before winning the UEFA Champions League trophy against Bayern Munich at Allianz ArenA.

The England defender, who featured alongside David Luiz in Munich, told Chelsea’s official website: “In a weird way I kind of expected it, there were only three options so it was quite a likely outcome. It will be a very tough game but it’s a great fixture to look forward to, both for us as players and the supporters”.

“It’s a very difficult tie but hugely exciting for everybody. We have good memories from the last time we played them and obviously we went on to win the trophy”.

Then he reminded: “We beat them 1-0 at home and then held them away, that famous game at the Nou Camp, so they’re great memories”.

“This stands alone, two big games. They’re a tough opponent but I’m sure they will be looking at us in the same way”.

Chelsea defender Cesar Azpilicueta is confident ahead of tomorrow’s clash against newly-promoted side Huddersfield as the Premier League champions are keen to bounce back from their last disappointing defeat against West Ham United at Olympic Stadium.


“Every time you concede an early goal it makes it even more difficult, – the Spaniard said – Every game is difficult. You have to play 90 minutes very well to get the points. When you are 1-0 down it becomes harder. We are obviously disappointed with it. We need to analyse to bounce back from the defeat. I think we did not start the way that we had to start. We conceded an early goal and after this West Ham were in a dangerous position”.

West Ham are still involved in the relegation battle despite beating Chelsea in the London Derby: “Every point is important for them, but the same for us. So after this we were not able to create chances to score and when you are 1-0 down it is difficult and we were not able to come back. Big teams, after a defeat, we have to answer in a strong way. We know it is a tough place. We have the character and hopefully we can get the three points”.

‘We are in December and we cannot think more than this. – Azpilicueta added – We have a tough game against Huddersfield, we will try to get the three points on the road and get back to winning ways and keep going, keep pushing”.

“The first thing for us is to change the final result” said Chelsea manager Antonio Conte when asked about their last Premier League game against West Ham United.

“We dominated the game and controlled the game, shooted 19 times but we lost the game – he added – Tomorrow [against Huddersfield] we have to have a good final result. It is important to find a solution for the moment and not look too far. In this case it is right to make a rotation”.

Chelsea will face Huddersfield at 8PM tomorrow, while Manchester City and Manchester United will play their games on Wednesday night.
