While last time, Chelsea's game plan included soaking up pressure before hitting back on the counter, Azpilicueta believes that under Sarri, Chelsea will be more aggressive in their approach. "They can control the ball with possession".
"Nowadays one time is one too much". That season, we conceded quite a few goals though we might have been winning games.
"We need to be careful because we don't want to expose ourselves too much because we know they are quality, especially on the counter-attack and they have an awesome three strikers so we are aware of that".

"I'm not sure that's in anyone's mind".
The Italian said: "We need to think the second leg will be hard because these opponents are hard away". Callum Hudson-Odoi had to rest but he is in my thoughts for the next match against Liverpool.
The Premier League side can take some confidence into the second leg knowing that they have never lost a European knockout tie having won the first leg away from home, progressing on all of the previous 10 occasions.
In Thursday's second leg, Slavia will have to score at least one goal at Stamford Bridge in order to have any hope of advancing into the semi-finals. Impressive goalkeeper Alex Meret stopped the Gunners winning by more. We're delighted with that.
"We were able to suffer and I am happy with the result and the performance". "They are a quality team", he told BT Sport. We had to dig in. It's another sign something is going wrong outside there.
They have also been knocked out of the FA Cup and are on the brink of Champions League elimination after losing 1-0 to Barcelona at Old Trafford on Wednesday. They are a quality team.
"But for our supporters it's a great opportunity".
It was the Czech side who were on top, but Chelsea suddenly came out of their shell as Pedro fed Willian, and the Brazilian cut inside before unleashing a dipping drive that came back off the bar. "Turning this around will be hard now, but we'll be home at the San Paolo and our supporters will help us".
"We want to make the next step because it's not over yet". Meanwhile, Sarri's under-strength Blues struggled to find rhythm for large spells, but grew into the game after Eden Hazard was introduced off the bench just before the hour mark.
"It might have been 5-3 or 5-2 or something like that".
