Cesar Azpilicueta has taken to Twitter to celebrate Chelsea’s 4-0 victory over Stoke City at the bet365 Stadium.

Stoke away is always considered one of the toughest fixtures on the calendar, but the Premier League champions made light work of it, largely thanks to the brilliance of summer signing Alvaro Morata.

The Spaniard scored his first ever Chelsea hat-trick against the Potters, and two of the goals were assisted by teammate and compatriot Azpilicueta. ‘Dave’ wore the armband prior to Gary Cahill’s introduction, and he put in a captain’s performance.

Following the game, Azpilicueta took to Twitter to celebrate the victory, and congratulate Morata on earning the match ball.

He may have not been given the captaincy full-time following John Terry’s departure, but Azpilicueta is a born leader and having these kind of characters in the dressing room is invaluable. If he continues to provide for Morata, too, we’re going to fall even further in love with him.
