Azpilicueta blames Chelsea forwards for five-year Premier League title drought

It is five seasons since the last time Azpilicueta won the Premier League.

Cesar Azpilicueta has blamed Chelsea’s misfiring forwards for the club’s Premier League title drought. The West London club have not lifted the league title for five years.

Thomas Tuchel’s men started their 2022/23 campaign with a 1-0 away win over Everton on Saturday. It was Chelsea’s first victory at Goodison Park since 2017.

Azpilicueta explained post-match, “You know, every team wants to score a lot of goals and not concede. It’s true that maybe at the top it is obvious for the last few years we were a bit far.

“You know it is five seasons since the last time we won the Premier League. We need to score goals if we want to win anything. We need to score goals and not to concede anything.

“Lately, the last couple of games in the Premier League, we didn’t score enough and with a half-chance we concede. So that’s our problem, and that’s why we finished third with 20 or more points behind Manchester City.”

Azpilicueta recently signed a new contract with the Blues and he would look to end the title drought in his final years with the club.
