César Azpilicueta Chelsea
On 24 August 2012, Chelsea signed Azpilicueta for an undisclosed fee, reported as £7 million. Due to his surname being difficult for some speakers of English to pronounce, club fans gave him the mononymous nickname “Dave”. He made his first debut on 25 September 2012, starting in a 6–0 home win against Wolverhampton Wanderers in a League Cup tie.
He played his first Premier League game the following week, coming on as a substitute for Branislav Ivanović in a 4–1 success over Norwich City, also at Stamford Bridge. On 3 November 2012, he made his first league start, appearing against Swansea City in a 1–1 away draw. He played 48 official contests in his first year with the Rafael Benítez-led side, including eight in the Blues’ victorious campaign in the UEFA Europa League. In the final against S.L. Benfica his 67th-minute handball led to Óscar Cardozo equalising through a penalty kick, in an eventual 2–1 win in Amsterdam.
Azpilicueta scored his first competitive goal for Chelsea on 29 October 2013, netting the first in a 2–0 victory at Arsenal in the fourth round of the League Cup. At the end of the season, he was voted the club’s Player’s Player of the Year. Before the start of the 2014–15 season, Cole was released and the club spent £15.8 million on Filipe Luís, but Azpilicueta began the season as first-choice left-back.
On 2 September 2014, he signed a new five-year contract with the club and, on 18 October, he was sent off in the first half of a 2–1 win at Crystal Palace for a foul on Mile Jedinak. he started as Chelsea won the League Cup on 1 March 2015. In the second half, he was injured in a collision with Tottenham Hotspur’s Eric Dier, and had to leave the pitch for a bandage to be wrapped around his head.
On 2 August 2015, Azpilicueta featured for 69 minutes in the 1–0 loss to Arsenal in the FA Community Shield. Nineteen days later, he scored the team’s third goal in a 3–2 away win over West Bromwich Albion, for what was his first Premier League goal, and he netted again in a 2–2 draw in the reverse fixture on 13 January 2016.
Although Azpilicueta was initially used as a left-back under new coach Antonio Conte, after two consecutive league defeats the latter converted into a back-three formation, with the former playing as a centre-back in the following match against Hull City on 1 October 2016, which ended in a 2–0 away win. On 13 December 2016 he signed a new three-and-a-half-year contract with Chelsea, running until 2020; in his first appearance following the agreement he made his 200th competitive appearance for the club, in a 1–0 away victory over Sunderland.
Azpilicueta played every minute of the season as his team won the domestic league, and scored in a 4–3 home win against Watford after the title was already won. In late July 2017, after the departure of John Terry, he was appointed vice-captain. On 12 September 2017, Azpilicueta scored his first Champions League goal, in a 6–0 group stage home win against Qarabağ FK.
