Cesar Azpilicueta insists Chelsea are now aiming their sights on the top of the Premier League following their 2-0 Capital One Cup victory over Arsenal on Tuesday night.

"Arsenal now have two really hard games but we don't need to look at other teams. We need to keep working," said the former Osasuna player.

"We are improving in every game and this is the most important thing. We are growing up as a team. We are in second, two points less than Arsenal, and we're now going to try and get up to first.

"We play in a difficult stadium as well in Newcastle on Saturday. It's always hard there. This league is really competitive."
