Chelsea are 1-0 up at half time thanks to Cesar Azpilicueta’s goal, and while the finish was nice and the assist from Callum Hudson-Odoi was smart, it was really the run from Azpi that made the goal.
Caughtoffside noted that the defender ran from the edge of his own box, covered the length of the pitch, then even went round the outside of CHO to receive the return pass.

He finds another gear though to motor through…

What a guy!
