Chelsea captain Azpilicueta: I'm sure Kepa will turn things around

Chelsea captain Cesar Azpilicueta says Kepa Arrizabalaga has the squad's full support.

Azpilicueta tried to offer his countryman some words of encouragement.

“In football, we have difficult times," he said. “In my position as captain, obviously I know him from a long time ago. I always try to help him.

“Sometimes you feel like everything goes against you. You have to have the character to face it. I have no doubt Kepa will work hard to reverse the situation.

“The whole squad are fighting for targets as a collective. When you are a goalkeeper, it's a completely different situation, but he will keep working hard, giving his best."
