Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher says Chelsea defender Cesar Azpilicueta as the best in the league.

Azpilicueta was named Chelsea‘s man of the match for his superb performance in the club’s 1-0 win over Crystal Palace on Saturday, which saw the 27-year-old set up Diego Costa for the only goal of the game in the 43rd minute.

Carragher said of the Spaniard: “Azpilicueta is the best defender in the league.

“You can talk about full-backs now being wingers. If there was any full-back who I’d want on my team it’d be Azpilicueta, straight in.

“You know what you’re getting week in, week out.”
