Chelsea captain Azpilicueta opens up about his performances and Chelsea loss to Arsenal; Here’s what he said
The Gunners cruised to a 3-1 win via a double from Martin Odegaard and Gabriel Jesus’ goal. Noni Madueke struck for the visitors.
Azpilicueta later said: “The first half we were quite passive. We know they are a dangerous team and will bring a lot of people forward but we should’ve done better with the ball.
“In the second half we showed a bit of a reaction, in the first half we were far from there. It’s tough for everybody, we’re not in a good position. The reality is what we have now. We have to go through it.
“We are all disappointed, the fans at the club. We have to take responsibility and that’s the only way. It’s very hard, we didn’t expect to be here but that’s where we are. We have five games left, we have to show a positive energy and win games.
“It’s the worst run since I’ve been at the club. We’re the ones playing on the pitch and we have to turn this around. It’s hard for everybody and we have to come through these moments. Off the pitch we have a lot of things to work on.”
