Chelsea ace Cesar Azpilicueta sends message to stars after Man Utd defeat

Chelsea ace Cesar Azpilicueta sends message to stars after Man Utd defeat”

Manchester United's Harry Maguire in action during their English Premier League match with Chelsea at Old Trafford in Manchester August 11, 2019.

Manchester United were in need of a fast start to the campaign to erase memories of a awful end to last season and got it.

Chelsea had the lion's share of possession and more shots at goal but were ultimately left reeling from their heaviest loss to United at Old Trafford since 1965.

"If they are here it is because they deserve to be. We trust in them", Azpilicueta said. They are fighting in every training session.

It was a bright start to the season for the Red Devils, whose impressive performance has given the United fans belief that they can better last season's underwhelming sixth-place finish. He also said that the selection of inexperienced trio Mason Mount, Andreas Christiansen and Tammy Abraham was a bad idea.

But they collapsed in the second half, making it a miserable first Premier League game in the dug-out for Chelsea legend Lampard.

"We took risks but that's the way here, you've got to go for it".

Azpilicueta has urged Chelsea to draw a line under the Manchester meltdown as they head to Istanbul to face Liverpool in Wednesday's European Super Cup final.

"Chelsea always fight for everything, so when we don't win then we know there will be more and more questions around us - but we have to cope with it".

"What's clear is the squad we've got".

What we do know for sure is that the longer the former Borussia Dortmund man is out of the team, the louder the calls to include him will grow. "There is a trophy to fight for on Wednesday against a good team - so we have to be ready for it".
