Chelsea followed up their Barcelona victory with another win – this time winning nervously, defeating Championship side Reading 4-3. Mason Mount bagged a brace whilst Ross Barkley and Kenedy also got on the scoresheet.
Versatile defender Cesar Azpilicueta put up his thoughts post match saying “we keep working!”…

Azpilicueta has been at Chelsea since 2012 when he joined the club for just £6.5m from Marseille. He’s now one of their longest-serving players having made 337 appearances in the blue colours of West London. Last season, he captained the side in every single Premier League game.
A number of fans were quick to reply to his tweet, some were serious while many were of a light-hearted nature. One supporter told him to work on that defending with another similarly asking him to tighten that defence.
Others were harsher telling the 29-year-old that he can’t play with a leaking defence in the Premier League and expect to win matches whilst one fan called him buddy when asking him to learn how to cross a ball.
One member of the Stamford Bridge crowd pointed out the fact he had shaved his beard off, saying nice one. Though, a lot of fans simply labelled him captain fantastic.

Lets tighten that defence and we ready to go
