Chelsea must respond to last weekend's defeat with a dominant victory at Huddersfield Town on Tuesday, defender Cesar Azpilicueta has said.

The Premier League champions suffered a shock 1-0 defeat at West Ham United last weekend that left them 14 points behind league leaders Manchester City.

Spain international Azpilicueta has urged the London outfit to channel their disappointment into a performance worthy of a major club at John Smith's Stadium.

"Big teams, after a defeat, we have to answer in a strong way," Azpilicueta told the club's website.

"We know it is a tough place. We have the character and hopefully we can get the three points.

"We are in December and we cannot think more than this. We have a tough game against Huddersfield, we will try to get the three points on the road and get back to winning ways and keep going, keep pushing."

Huddersfield have won three of their last four home league games, the exception being a 2-1 loss to leaders City last month.
