Chelsea captain, Cesar Azpilicueta has insisted that he bears no hard feelings towards Manchester United’s striker, Romelu Lukaku, after the Belgian sent him crashing into a photographer during their 1-1 draw at Old Trafford on Sunday.

Azpilicueta went shoulder to shoulder with Lukaku near the corner flag and the Manchester United’s frontman sent the Spaniard off the pitch towards United’s supporters who were sitting in the front row.

Azpilicueta crashed into United’s official photographer who was sitting just yards from the edge of the pitch before colliding with a metal gate in front of the fans.

After the match, the Spanish defender was asked if he was okay, and Azpilicueta told Sky Sports, “I was okay, maybe I was lucky I had the photographer just in front of me. I was going straight to the wall.

“It’s a fight, it’s a fight, we knew they are a very physical team.

“Physicality is part of football, the battles, I’m happy for it.”
