Azpilicueta Hoping For Chelsea Turnaround

Cesar Azpilicueta says he wants to bring some happiness to Chelsea supporters after another damaging defeat on Monday.

The Blues suffered a third defeat from their last five games after losing 2-0 at home to Manchester United in the fifth round of the FA Cup, missing out on a quarter-final clash with Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Maurizio Sarri is under increasing scrutiny after the disappointing results although Chelsea do have the opportunity to win a trophy on Sunday when they take on Manchester City in the Carabao Cup final at Wembley.

First, up for the west London outfit is Thursday’s Europa League last-32, second-leg tie at home to Malmo and Azpilicueta has urged focus from his side as they enter a crucial period of the campaign.

“Hopefully we can have a good nine days. It’s the whole season,” he told Chelsea TV. “Now, in three days, we will be back at the Bridge against Malmo, to finish the job we started last Thursday, to get through to the next round.

“Then we have two massive games. We know that a trophy in the middle is everything, to bring the fans back to Wembley with the spirit to get the cup.

Hopefully, we can give a bit of happiness to them, to enjoy a bit of joy. Then we know Tottenham at home is something special.”
