(Video): Chelsea captain admits team aren’t at “best level”

They say that the sign of champions is playing badly but grinding out a win anyway.

Well Chelsea have managed that 3 times in seven days, looking second best for long periods against Aston Villa, Zenit and Tottenham, but coming out of those games with 3 wins and 0 goals conceded.

Speaking to Sky Sports after today’s 3-0 thrashing, Cesar Azpilicueta even admitted the team “know [they] are not at [their] best level.”

There’s only so unhappy one can be with a 3-0 win against your top rivals. We’re sure Azpi won’t be losing too much sleep tonight worrying about the performance.
