Chelsea captain Cesar Azpilicueta believes the Blues are more than ready to win the match against Tottenham Hotspur.
Chelsea and Spurs have a history of rivalry between them and the two potential title contenders see each other face to face on Sunday evening.
“It’s one of those kinds of games when you usually feel a special atmosphere at the Bridge and that game [in 2016], we were having a terrible season, we were losing 2-0 at half-time,” Azpilicueta told the Telegraph on the London derby.
“But, in the second half, the electricity around the stadium…I think something clicked that day that even though we were not playing for anything, just to not let Tottenham win the league. It was not only the game, it was the title race as well that they were involved in.
“Every year is different and we had a very good record against them until two or three seasons ago when we lost, but, hopefully, we can keep beating them at the Bridge.
“Since I arrived at Chelsea, I always tried to have the winning mentality of every game to finish at the top for the top trophies. That includes being the top team in London and we want to be at the top because that means we are the no.1s. That’s what we fight for. We are in good form and, hopefully, we can improve on last season and now reach higher levels.”
