Gary Neville: This Chelsea star is absolutely brilliant, he’s the best in England
Gary Neville singles out Cesar Azpilicueta for special praise following his brilliant form for Chelsea
Gary Neville has lavished praise on Cesar Azpilicueta following his brilliant form for Chelsea this season.
The Spaniard has been a regular fixture in Antonio Conte’s side this season and his performances have helped Chelsea win the Premier League title this term.
The 27-year-old has scored one goal and made four assists in the Premier League this season and has featured in all 37 of Chelsea’s games.
Azpilicueta helped Chelsea clinch the Premier League title on Friday night thanks to their 1-0 win over West Brom at The Hawthorns.
And former Manchester United star Neville has been very impressed by what he has seen from the Spaniard so far this season.
Speaking on Sky Sports’ Monday Night Football, Neville said: “His movements with Cesc Fabregas at West Brom were really telling in terms of his intelligence.
“He gets into really good positions. He is the best defender in the league. He is a brilliant, brilliant defender.”
Azpilicueta will be hoping to feature when Chelsea take on Arsenal in the FA Cup final at Wembley as they look to win a domestic double this season following Conte’s arrival last summer.
