Chelsea fans here in the Tavern are hopeful that their side can escape the trenches of despair they currently find themselves in, as the Blues have gone three Premier League games without a win.
Antonio Conte’s future at Chelsea continues to remain uncertain after the defending champions suffered their second straight defeat at the hands of Watford last night, with the post-match press conference causing the Italian to try and dodge heavy artillery from the media. However, one man who never fails to keep his cool under pressure is vice-captain Cesar Azpilicueta as the club’s saviour in the most desperate of times, and he looks to have come to the rescue once again, as Chelsea’s official website posted some morale-boosting post-match comments from the Spaniard after their defeat.
Indeed, Chelsea fans often overlook Gary Cahill as the club captain with the Spanish international often outdoing the Englishman both on and off the pitch, as he continues to find a place deep in the hearts of many of our residents here in the Tavern. And, they found themselves in unfamiliar realms last night after conceding the most goals in a match all season, with fans hitting an all-time low in the English capital as the slide continues to provide hostile crowds at the Bridge.
“We are Chelsea, a big club and when we lose one game it’s a bad time for us,”
“Obviously to lose two in a row is even worse but I’m sure this team will fight back. We have three targets to go for and we have a massive three or four months ahead of us.”
“Of course it’s very difficult to take, we’ve had two heavy defeats and obviously we are really disappointed. It’s a massive setback for us.”
“As a player what I want is to get back on the training field as soon as possible, work hard for Monday’s game, get the three points and get some confidence back.”
Cesar Azpilicueta is the definition of a professional who always gives his all for the cause and never fails to produce for the side even at the most troubling of times. Indeed, a luxury for fans to have in their side with the Spaniard often playing a huge part in the fans mood off the pitch, with post-match comments and his positive nature rubbing off on surrounding fans. Although, in the crisis Chelsea currently find themselves in, it’ll be tough for one player’s words to override the general feeling amongst Blues fans here in the Tavern.
