Chelsea boss Mourinho tells Cole: Azpilicueta simply better

Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho says he's backing Cesar Azpilicueta over Ashley Cole because the Spaniard has been flawless.

Cole will again be on the bench tonight against Arsenal.

"In this moment Azpi's playing better," said Mourinho.

"He is showing me he's physically better, very strong.

"I don't remember one defensive positional mistake from Azpi.

"When we're going to face people like Mesut coming from the right, or Walcott making diagonal runs, or Rosicky attacking defenders with the ball at his feet, I'd want Azpi to go."
