Cesar Azpilicueta insists the Chelsea fans deserve a winning performance against Manchester City after a disappointing result in midweek. The west London outfit have lost momentum over the last month and they head into Saturday’s game with just one league win from their last four outings.
Wednesday’s 2-1 loss at Wolves has left a sour taste in the mouth of Azpilicueta and the Spaniard feels the fans deserve much better.
The home clash with City, who are yet to lose in the league this term, will certainly prove difficult but the 29-year-old believes they can get back to winning ways with a “big performance”.
Azpilicueta told Chelsea’s official website: “The only response that we can give is on the pitch in this game today. We know we are facing a team that at the moment is unbeaten but it does not matter who is in front of us, the fans deserve a reaction from the first minute at the Bridge. “We have to do a big game as a team, playing all together. We know that after a defeat it is not easy but there is no choice, we have to analyse what we did wrong and what we are doing well to try to win today. We need a big, big performance from everyone. Hopefully we can bring back the happiness to the club and the fans.”
