The victory moved the Blues back into the Premier League top four ahead of another meeting with Merseyside opposition on Monday night, when Everton are the visitors to Stamford Bridge. Carlo Ancelotti’s side are a point behind us with a game in hand, which is why Azpilicueta has warned of the need to stay focused and avoid complacency.
‘We know there are still a lot of games to play,’ added the captain. ‘When you get closer and closer, every game is so important because it’s more difficult to get back if you lose points.
‘We are very happy to beat Liverpool, a rival we are fighting with to get into the top four, and to get a clean sheet again.
‘The team is improving and we’re looking forward to the future but on Monday we have another challenge against Everton so now it is well done for the team but we have to focus only on that.’
