Cesar Azpilicueta comments on Mykhailo Mudryk’s debut for Chelsea.
Cesar Azpilicueta gives verdict on Mykhailo Mudryk’s Chelsea debut.
The Blues dethroned Arsenal in the pecking order by signing the Ukraine international, who made his debut in Saturday’s 0-0 draw with Liverpool at Anfield.
While neither Mudryk nor any other player on the field were able to break the standoff between the two struggling giants, his burst of speed and technique on the ball surprised Azpilicueta, who just achieved 500 appearances for Chelsea.
“I’ve seen a very focused lad with great determination, great ambition,” Azpilicueta said.

“It was his first game since November so, for him, it was like pre-season, he played 35 minutes at Anfield so it’s not the easiest debut and I think he did brilliantly.
“He’s very confident. The price tag, I know from the outside it’s there but we players don’t make the prices, it’s a market and when you are in the market, you have competition to get players so I don’t think it has to lie on his shoulders.
Chelsea sit tenth in the Premier League and will not play again until early February, after being knocked out of the FA Cup.
