Man United legend announces Chelsea star is “best in Premier League”

Manchester United legend Gary Neville rates Chelsea fullback Cesar Azpilicueta as the best defender in the Premier League.

The Spain defender has helped Chelsea get off to a near-perfect start to the season, with the unbeaten Blues four points clear at the top of the table after 10 games.

As quoted on the Sky Sports website, he said: “I’d say, for consistency of performances, it would be one of the Chelsea lads – and I’d probably say Azpilicueta.

“For technical defending, not making a mistake, not being in the wrong position, not getting caught out… I don’t see him making a mistake. And I have to say the Chelsea defenders aren’t far behind him; Gary Cahill, John Terry and Branislav Ivanovic.

“But Azpilicueta, when I watch him, he’s as near to perfect as possible when it comes to defending; he’s immaculate.” © 2017 Frontier Theme
