Azpilicueta discuss Saul's Chelsea rough debut

Saul Niguez had a less than ideal first game for Chelsea, finding himself taken off after just 45 minutes of football against Aston Villa.

The midfielder himself has spoken about his desire to improve, but Cesar Azpilicueta also offered his two cents on the issue during the pre-match press conference ahead of the Zenit game.

He said: "When he signed for Chelsea he had a bit of a stressful last hours in the transfer window, he arrived in a new country with a few training sessions.

"His first game was against good opposition, very aggressive. It’s normal, you need time to adapt. His response has been spot on.

"He wants to improve, asking questions. He wants to adapt as quickly as possible. Some players need more time than others, that's natural. He has our full support. 

"He is a great addition, I’m happy to have him in the team. I’m sure he will keep growing and help the team because we need from everybody. I’m sure he will be an important player this season."

With N'Golo Kante set to miss the game against Zenit as well, Saul may get a chance to redeem himself as early as Tuesday!
