thumbnail Hello,

The Spain defender featured as one of three allotted players over the age of 21 and played the whole 90 minutes at right-back in a 3-2 defeat to Charlton Athletic

Cesar Azpilicueta made his first appearance in a Chelsea shirt on Friday, playing the full 90 minutes as the club's reserve side were beaten 3-2 by Charlton.

The 23-year-old featured at right-back in a Blues side containing experienced first team squad members in Paulo Ferreira and Ross Turnbull.

Azpilicueta is yet to make a first-team appearance for the west London outfit, following his summer move from Ligue 1 outfit Marseille, but could now be in contention following the international break.

However, his first experience of playing for the club was tainted by disappointment, as Chelsea drew level from being 2-0 down before being denied a share of the points late on.

The full-back made his name with L'OM where he made 68 appearances over three years.
