‘Reliable, uncompromising and criminally underrated’ – Chelsea fans are delighted as key player reaches another milestone

The Chelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern think that Cesar Azpilicueta is one of the world’s best…

The Spaniard arrived at Stamford Bridge in 2012 in underwhelming fashion, with several other top players joining the club during the same period.

He has remained relatively under-the-radar ever since, with the defender quietly going about his business in impressive fashion – much to the joy of the Chelsea fans in the pub.

Under Antonio Conte, the defender has been moved to a more central role, and with that has come arguably his best season yet. Flourishing alongside David Luiz and Gary Cahill, Azpilicueta has finally become a household name in the pub as a result.

His accomplishments are even better than what first meets the eye, too, with Azpilicueta’s display against Sunderland serving as a milestone for the Spaniard. Indeed, his completion of the game means that he has played every single minute of every single Premier League game this year – a remarkable feat.

Unsurprisingly, this has given the Chelsea fans on Reddit another excuse to take to the site and lavish praise upon the defender, with fans touting him as one of Europe’s best.
