Chelsea captain Cesar Azpilicueta has said that he wanted the Blues to win by a bigger margin after their Europa League win against Malmo in Sweden. Maurizio Sarri’s men conceded a late goal in the match as they won the contest by 1-2 in the first leg of the match away from home.
Speaking to the media after the match, the Chelsea defender said, “It was a tough defeat last Sunday, but we are in the knockout stage and it’s important to start well.”
He added, “We had chances to have a more comfortable result, but they scored and there is still a lot to play for next week. In the second half we had whole control of the game and had a lot of chances. It’s frustrating to concede a goal and not to have a better result. It’s still all to play for.”
Speaking of the upcoming fixtures on the domestic as well as European front, the Chelsea skipper said, “This tournament is very important, we are fighting for trophies and to be in the top four. We are in the EFL Cup final [against City] next week, every trophy is important.”
