Cesar Azpilicueta is not the average defender. He makes attacking runs which causes trouble for the opposition defense. He is also known for his crosses and passes into the opposing box as well as his defensive capabilities.
With his recent assist against Manchester City. Azpilicueta has now surpassed Ashley Cole to be record holder for the most assists by a Chelsea defender in the Premier League.
Ashley Cole made 385 appearances in the Premier League and has 31 assists to his name. Ashley Cole retired from football officially in August 18th, 2019. Azpilicueta has made 293 appearances in the EPL with 32 assists. The statistics shows Ashley Cole is still more of a goal scorer. Hopefully Azpilicueta can close that game or even pass it.
The Chelsea defender still has time on his side and will surely make more Premier League appearances.
