Cesar Azpilicueta has revealed his surprise after the victory over Swansea City, the Chelsea defender admits being dropped from the starting XI was a big surprise to him.

The Spanish was an unused substitute against the Swans and before the game, Azpilicueta had not missed a single minute of the Premier League action for nearly two years.

He said: “It was a nice run. I never thought about the number of games I played in a row — all 90 minutes.

“But I would try to beat that mark, and I'm pleased with the number of games because I know it's difficult.

“I want to play every game, but the manager makes the best decisions for the team. It was important we won (against Swansea)."

The former  Osasuna and Marseille defender is one of the most reliable players in the world.

Up next for the Premier League Champions is the visit to London Stadium to face West Ham United.
