Chelsea and Spain defender Cesar Azpilicueta has vowed to break his record of playing 74 consecutive games for the Blues, reports the Daily Mail.

The Spain global was rested from last month's 1-0 win over Swansea at Stamford Bridge with the Chelsea boss needing to rotate his squad in light of a hectic schedule which will see the Premier League champions play five times in just over a fortnight.

The logic behind the decision was that the Italian manager wanted Azpilicueta to be fresh against both Newcastle and Atletico Madrid.

Chelsea are looking to win their third Premier League title in their last four seasons.

'Of course I want to play every game. "But we are a team, the manager makes the best decisions for the team, and it was important we won".

"It was a nice run", he admitted.

"I think after the performance from tonight, I think we deserve to win it, but we were not able to do it and now we have to be focused on the draw and who we play". He sees the performance, the training'.

Chelsea have endured some inconsistent results in the Champions League over the past couple of months despite Antonio Conte's men securing a place in the last 16 of the competition.

Following taking on Chelsea, West Ham then welcome Arsene Wenger's Arsenal to the London Stadium before a crunch trip to Stoke City on 16th December, with the pressure on Moyes to lead the side up the table. If we finished first, we could also face big teams.

Chelsea failed to top Group C after drawing against Atletico Madrid on Tuesday night.

"For now it's time to focus on the Premier League, on the Carabao Cup and FA Cup that we will start in January, and when the Champions League is back in February we will see how we are".
