Cesar Azpilicueta has given his vote of confidence to Tammy Abraham and Mason Mount.
“If they are here it is because they deserve to be. They are fighting in every training session. We trust in them,” Azpilicueta said.
“All the boys, they train to play for the Chelsea first team since they were young and now we have a massive opportunity to create a fantastic group, to learn from every game.
“Obviously everyone would like to start in a better way but we have to face the reality and become stronger from it.”
Ahead of their final against Liverpool, the captain has asked his team to give it all.
“We know that Chelsea always fights for everything. When you don’t win, the questions around get more and more but we have to cope with it,” he said.
“We know that playing for Chelsea requires your best effort in every game so we have to learn from the game.
“We know that we can improve. We have to face it, take the responsibility and move forward. We have a trophy to fight for on Wednesday against a good team and we have to be ready for it.”
