Chelsea captain Azpilicueta: Revs friendly ideal prep for Baku

Chelsea captain Cesar Azpilicueta says Thursday's friendly against New England Revolution will provide good preparation for the Europa League final.

The Blues have two weeks until they face Arsenal in the final in Baku.

“We have the senior players and we are approaching our most important game of the season, the final in Baku," he said.

“And we are focused on keeping having good feelings and being a good team and keeping fit, because there are still nearly two weeks to the final.

“This game is the last game before the big game so we have to use it in the right way.

“We are facing an opponent who are also involved in their league at the moment so hopefully we can do what we have been doing this season and hopefully improve the team with new members in the squad, and we are very happy to have them with us."
