Cesar Azpilicueta played at centre-back in the draw against Leicester City on Sunday – and some of the Chelsea fans on Twitter were impressed by his performance.

Maurizio Sarri’s team were involved in a low-key match at the end of the season, but their point means they have finished the third in the league table.

Despite a good amount of critics, Sarri has got the club back in the Champions League for next year during his first campaign at Stamford Bridge and still has the opportunity to win silverware.

A selection of Blues fans picked out Azpilicueta on social media for praise following his display.

But the 29-year-old played centre-back alongside David Luiz against Leicester and looked comfortable in the heart of defence, where he managed to shackle centre-forward Jamie Vardy.

Azpilicueta has performed well at centre-back as part of a back three in the past, but he’s shown even more versatility by being comfortable there in a different system.

It will be intriguing to see how Sarri plans on using the Chelsea captain next season in his first team.

Here are some Chelsea fans commenting on Azpilicueta:
