Cape Town - Chelsea defender Cesar Azpilicueta is relishing a return to Stamford Bridge as the Blues complete their pre-season schedule against Fiorentina on Wednesday evening.
Azpilicueta was a key figure in last season's Barclays Premier League title success, built on the club's impressive unbeaten record at their home ground.
"We are looking forward to coming again to our stadium, to be together with the fans and obviously looking forward to starting the season after that in the Premier League," Azpilicueta told the club's website.
"It's a friendly game for our fans but we have to treat it as the last game before the start of the season and try to be 100 per cent ready for Swansea City on Saturday."
"Very good memories," the Spanish full-back nodded when recalling his last time out at the Bridge - the champions parade at Stamford Bridge.
"It was all our efforts during the season that came together in that moment and we have to think about it a lot to be there again at the end of the season."
Chelsea open their Premier League title defence at home to Swansea City on Saturday.
Kick-off at Stamford Bridge is set for 18:30.
