Cesar Azpilicueta: 'Chelsea must create more chances'

Zinedine Zidane

An 87th-minute own goal from DeAndre Yedlin gave Chelsea victory after Joselu's header had cancelled out a controversial Eden Hazard penalty, ensuring that new head coach Maurizio Sarri has taken maximum points from his first three Premier League matches following wins over Huddersfield Town and Arsenal.

Chelsea defender Cesar Azpilicuets says that the Blues must create more chances in the final third, despite netting eight times in their first three top-flight games.

"We know the league is not finished, it's just the beginning but confidence is coming, goals is coming, so we just look forward for the next game".

Chelsea star Eden Hazard has admitted that his side are aiming to finish this season as Premier League Champions.

"By the tactical point of view, we didn't lose, but we lost the game". The drudgery and suffering associated with predecessor Antonio Conte has soon been forgotten as Chelsea have bamboozled their opponents to date this season with defence-dizzying "pass and move", and high-intensity, high-press football.

The matchday programme for Monday's Premier League clash against Tottenham included a wrap-around with the headline of 'The Pink is back!'

"We are in August, until May there is a big path to work, and we will see how far we can go". It is not so easy in this period because we play only once a week, but I have told the team in this month they have to be patient. It changes completely with Europe, with the cups, and we have to be ready.

"For [the attacking players], it's good because we mostly have the ball".

Chelsea face Bournemouth in their final game before the two-week break, facing the Cherries at Stamford Bridge on Saturday (3pm) as they look to maintain their ideal start.
