Cesar Azpilicueta enjoyed a full 90 for Chelsea U21s in their friendly defeat to Charlton Athletic.

The 23-year-old, making his first appearance in a Chelsea shirt since completing his switch from Marseille, started at right-back in a side which also contained Ross Turnbull and Paulo Ferreira, as the Blues were beaten 3-2 by a Charlton team who were able to field a number of players with first team experience.

The watching Roberto Di Matteo will have taken heart from a solid display by the Spaniard, who was defensively sound throughout, while also offering a glimpse of his attacking threat with a delightful cross from which Adam Phillip went close.
