“Obviously it’s a big challenge for us, we know how difficult it is to win it as we’ve now won it two times in the past three years, but we are ready to fight”. – Azpilicueta told Chelsea official website – “Now every team will be fired up playing against the champions and we have to prepare well mentally to fight for it. This is a league where you compete against six or seven big teams. It’s very difficult to predict a champion before the start of the season. The biggest rivals will be the team you are playing against next and every team is difficult to play, so we have to perform in every game.”
