Chelsea suffered a surprising defeat to West Ham last week and must respond positively by bagging all 3 points away to Huddersfield Town on Tuesday according to Chelsea defender Cesar Azpilicueta.
Chelsea lost by a lone goal to David Moyes’ Hammers in a London derby and are now 14 points behind league leaders Manchester City.
Azpilicueta has come out to urge his teammates to channel their disappointment over the loss towards an impressive performance as they visit a stubborn Huddersfield side at John Smith’s stadium.
“Big teams, after a defeat, we have to answer in a strong way,” Azpilicueta told Chelsea’s official website.
“We know it is a tough place. We have the character and hopefully we can get the three points.
“We are in December and we cannot think more than this. We have a tough game against Huddersfield, we will try to get the three points on the road and get back to winning ways and keep going, keep pushing.”
Meanwhile, David Wagner’s Huddersfield side have won three of their last four home games, with the only loss to league leaders Manchester City.
