César Azpilicueta has had one of the best weeks in his career. Fresh from earning his first cap for Spain, he put in one of his best displays as a Chelsea player in the 4-1 win over Wigan. The Spaniard setting two goals up for Eden Hazard and Marko Marin came close to his first goal for Chelsea but Ali Al-Habsi produced a fine save, Marin then headed home the rebound.

Azpilicueta said: “When you win it is always a good week. But it is also true I played with the national team. And it was my dream to play for Spain so it is a very good week.”

He admitted that this win was really important, he added: “The last few games have been disappointing. We play for Chelsea and we know we must win every game,” he said. “We have this pressure every game – Tottenham had won before we played and we wanted to keep our position – and we did. We won and with our supporters here. The right-back also highlighted the clubs targets for next season by saying: “The main thing is the mentality is still there to keep going. We know we have to stay in the top four for the stability of the club. We have to play in the Champions League every season. We know it is going to be difficult but we have the quality to do it.”

This win will help Chelsea finish in the top four. It came courtesy of a brilliant Ramires goal, and Hazard added another soon after the break. Sean Maloney pulled one back for Wigan but Frank Lampard (he just cant stop scoring) killed the game off with the third and 198th Chelsea goal for him. Marin then headed home the fourth.
