Chelsea captain Cesar Azpilicueta featured in the Blues’ opening game of Premier League 2018/19 against Huddersfield Town at John Smith’s Stadium last evening.
The Spaniard told BBC Sport: “Our new signings were very good. They are adapting very quickly to the team and being comfortable in the the team, and we have a very good squad.”
“It’s true when we created chances we were clinical. The goal just before half-time was massive going into the second-half. It meant we could control the game and we could have scored more goals in the end. In the first-half every ball and every cross was dangerous for them.”
Azpilicueta added: “We have been working really hard with him. He knows what he wants and our target was to start really well which we have done and now we must get ready for Arsenal.”
Chelsea will take on Arsenal next Saturday as Maurizio Sarri faces his first official game at Stamford Bridge.
