Chelsea fans slam captain Cesar Azpilicueta for his performance v Crystal Palace

Chelsea made it 11 league games unbeaten on Sunday afternoon as they comfortably beat Crystal Palace 3-1 and Blues captain Cesar Azpilicueta used the win as a platform to send a warning to champions Manchester City, stating that by December 8th there will be new league leaders in the form of the Stamford Bridge outfit.

However many of the Chelsea faithful were less than pleased with his individual performance, with some even calling for the London club’s hierarchy to find a replacement for the Spanish defender as soon as possible.

Maurizio Sarri’s system might have been successful so far, with the Italian also bringing through the likes of Ross Barkley and Ruben Loftus-Cheek to great effect, but one man who certainly hasn’t flourished under new management is the 5-foot-10 full-back.

The former Marseille man was arguably the best defender in the league under Antonio Conte, who tucked him inside into a back three. Chalking up six assists and two goals in the 17/18 season, the 29-year-old was a threat going forward when allowed to pick out a cross, but his one assist so far this season indicates he is struggling and this has been noticed by the Blues fans.

Here’s how they reacted on Twitter.
