Ceasar Azpilicueta has remain one of the key figures in the current Chelsea squad. The Spaniard since his arrival to Chelsea has been one of the most consistent defenders for the London club.

Why the former Marseille fullback has proven himself to be consistent, Chelsea have been marred by inconsistency. The London club has failed to establish a strong grip as the have failed to defend their titles when called upon.

Azpilicueta, who has been part of the Chelsea story has given a reason for the club’s inconsistency.

Azpilicueta said: “It is difficult to explain. We have been the club in England that has won the most trophies in the last couple of years.

“We are Chelsea we are fighting for trophies and we have to be up there and it is frustrating when you see we are able to win the title and then the next year we are not.

“I would like to be at the top always. It is difficult but it is our job and we have to try to do it.”

Chelsea seemed to be back in the title chase in the current league season. The London club sit two points behind league leaders Manchester City and Liverpool in the league standings.

Azpilicueta further said: “It is important to be in the group and be as high as possible and be ready, because we are still in October, nearly November, and there is still a long way until May.”
