Cesar Azpilicueta has given his opinion on what he feels went wrong for Chelsea against Manchester United.

Maurizio Sarri’s Blues were beaten 2-0 at Stamford Bridge on Monday night as they crashed out of the FA Cup.

First half headers from Ander Herrera and Paul Pogba was enough for the visitors to seal a spot in the quarter-finals of the competition, and Azpilicueta felt Chelsea weren’t sharp enough in front of goal when they had the opportunity to hit the target.

"It has been a tough night," the Spaniard told Chelsea TV. "We didn't put Manchester in difficulties even at 2-0 down.

"We were not very good in the final metres, so we paid (for) that. And at the end we couldn't score."

Azpilicueta also feels Chelsea's fixtures over the next few days will be key to their season, and is keen to bring joy back to the Chelsea fans.

They face Malmo in the Europa League on Thursday before taking on Manchester City in the Carabao Cup final at Wembley on Sunday, and then host Spurs in the Premier League next Wednesday.

"Hopefully we can have a good nine days. It's the whole season," the right-back added. "Now in three days we will be back at the Bridge against Malmo, to finish the job we started last Thursday, to get through to the next round.

"Then we have two massive games. We know that a trophy in the middle is everything, to bring the fans back to Wembley with the spirit to get the cup.

"Hopefully we can give a bit of happiness to them, to enjoy a bit of joy. Then we know Tottenham at home is something special."
