Azpilicueta: We’ve come a long way and now must finish the job

The Blues have occasionally struggled against opponents who play with a more compact, safety-first approach and Leicester’s game plan is expected to be similar to that this evening given a point will be a useful result for the visitors.

In the Cup final, Azpilicueta felt fine margins decided the 1-0 result in the Foxes’ favour and hopes we will come out on the right side of those tight moments tonight.

‘We face a team that is well organised and that has their threats,’ he added. ‘On Saturday, there were not many opportunities and we were sometimes not able to make the right decisions in the final third to be more dangerous.

‘They scored a good strike from long distance and then we had the goal ruled out by VAR by centimetres, as well as a great save in the last minute. In the big games, just the little details can make the difference and they were not for us.

‘We will try to do everything to win and get the three points so we go into the final game of the season with everything in our hands.’
