How has Azpilicueta adapted since the change to 3-4-3?

Chelsea have consolidated their position at the top of the league after making it eleven successive victories in the Premier League.

The humiliating defeat to Iceland was Hodgson’s final act as England manager and summed up his handling of this tournament. Yes, England did not have the best squad of players heading into Euro 2016, despite the hype, and their ceiling was probably a semi-final at best, but the way they were …

It led to the sacking of the Portuguese ‘Special One’ and saw the 2014-15 PFA Player of the Year become invisible in the space of six months.
