Chelsea captain Azpilicueta: Potter already getting his ideas across

Chelsea captain Cesar Azpilcueta is confident his team are heading in the right direction under new manager Graham Potter.

The Blues suffered a surprising 1-1 draw with RB Salzburg in Potter’s first game in charge of Thursday.

They now have one point from their first two Champions League group stage matches, but Azpilicueta is optimistic about the future.

“I think we are quite flexible in terms of system and position of players and that is the way the manager believed that we could hurt them and be stronger as a team and we work on that,’ Azpilicueta told the club’s website.

“Of course we are disappointed with the result but I think there are as well a lot of positives to take.

“We will keep working hard now we have an international break and we then have a run coming with a lot of games every three days, and we have to be ready for it.

“The manager has made very clear what he wanted from the players individually and as a team and we have to keep working.

“We know that we can do better, we have a big room for improvement, we need to keep sticking together and working hard and hopefully the results will arrive.”
