After Wednesday’s goalless draw against Watford, Spanish full-back Cesar Azpilicueta believes the Blues now have the confidence to win all of their matches.
Azpilicueta, 26, has been playing regularly at left-back having been signed as a right back from French side Marseille in 2012. He spoke to Chelsea’s Official website after the game against Watford.
“It was a tough game, obviously we are a little bit disappointed because we felt we deserved more, it was a good performance from the team but at the end of the day we didn’t get the three points.
‘We need to move (up the table) quickly. The whole team worked a lot and we are going in the right direction. Keeping a clean sheet is important but their keeper made some great saves, we were so close to winning the game.’
The focus now turns to the game against Louis Van Gaal’s Manchester United team on Sunday, as they begin to hit some form, scoring six goals in their last two games.
‘It will be a hard match,’ he said. ‘They are a team who keep the ball and won their last match well. They are a good team with very good players.
‘We have confidence to win all our matches. That’s our objective before every match. We are playing at home and we will go for the three points.
‘We have three competitions to play for: the FA Cup, the Champions League and the league, where we want to finish as well as possible.’
Azpilicueta will be hoping Chelsea can keep up their unbeaten streak under Guus Hiddink as they take on Manchester United at Stamford Bridge on Sunday.
