The Chelsea star produced another impressive display as his side claimed their eleventh successive Premier League win against Crystal Palace today.
Azpilicueta set up Diego Costa’s first-half header with a fine cross and that proved enough to secure the Blues’ 1-0 win at Selhurt Park.
And former Chelsea full-back Cole was certainly impressed by Azpilicueta’s performance.
“The way he trains and gets up against people, for me, he is unstoppable at right back,” Cole said on Sky Sports.
“Cesar Azpilicueta’s going to go a long way”
Chelsea legend Ashley Cole
“If you have that mentality, he’s going to go a long way.”
Chelsea’s win over Palace moved them nine points clear at the top of the Premier League table.
Antonio Conte’s side have been superb in recent weeks and are firm favourites to claim title glory this term.
Cole believe’s their victory today showed they can go all the way and lift the league trophy in May.
“It was a Championship performance,” Cole said.
“They didn’t score the goals that we know Chelsea for this season.
“But it was a great defensive performance and, at the end, it was a deserved result.”
