So far, out of the 21 Premier League matches which have been played in this season CescFabregas has emerged as the top assist maker and the price tag of €33 million which was spent in order to lure him away from Barcelona seems to have been money well spent as the Spanish midfielder has had a huge impact in the team of Jose Mourinho on so many levels that it’s hard to not consider him as one of the best players in the Premier League in the current season.
Fabregas has formed a midfield partnership with NemanjaMatic which has given Chelsea positive results as the Serbian defender is in charge of the defensive section of the midfield while Fabregas only has to focus on going upfront as the main creative source for Chelsea. Continue reading
The Spaniard was missed last season in Chelsea. With other weak opponents as well Chelsea was unable to make the cut when Fabregas was out of the team. Today Chelsea remains in the front foot so Fabregas has made the tables turn for Chelsea.
The beauty of the game played by Fabregas is that his approach towards it is quite simple. The move and the pass that he makes are quite craftily. He also releases the ball skillfully. He does make his job simple but other teammates job as well and the opponents remain clueless about it. Confronting against QPR, the team of Chelsea was not up to the mark so they should not be carried away easily. Robin Van Persie and Fabregas shared all the love which they had in similar situation to Louis Van Gal and Mourinho at Old Trafford.
Both the managers and the players share common history with each other. The embrace before the match was also warm. The defender of Chelsea, Branislav Ivanovic was not impressed with the sight. The incident is titled as the tunnel love. Fabregas has to keep on continuing with the same effort with his perfect match of Oscar. Fabregas has a lot to contribute yet to the team of Chelsea. His record of tackles as well as attempts is very high and it will be very difficult for his team mates to match up to his standards. The team of Chelsea revolves around him in completion so he has to gear up for all the upcoming matches soon.
Mourinho accepts that he has to acknowledge Fabregas but he still believes that he has more to contribute in terms of scores and also his individual standards. Fabregas intends to remain in backseat and not taste the praise that he deserves.
Cesc Fabregas has said that setting up goals for the forwards gives him more satisfaction than shaking the net himself.
Fabregas has been one of the top assisters for Chelsea this season. Both in the Premiership and in Europe, he has been excellent in playmaking. His coordination with Diego Costa has created serious headaches for the opposition defences. Continue reading
Blackburn Rovers have lofty ambitions of returning to the Premier League this season, but inconsistent form at the start of the season is threatening to cost them an automatic promotion spot. Under the managerial reign of Gary Bowyer, the team has had three wins in the last five matches. However, they have also suffered two defeats during the same period and this inconsistent form places them just 10th in the table already several points behind leaders Nottingham Forest. There are still several matches left in the Championship season, but midfielder Corry Evans says that it is vital to find consistent form in order to get automatic promotion.
Inconsistent teams rarely find themselves closer to the top two places. They may have to settle for a play-off place, while in some cases it may also not be available. After a lot of struggles in the last two seasons, Blackburn finally appear to have a steady team that manager Bowyer can rely upon. Despite transfer rumours surrounding star names like Jordan Rhodes, Blackburn ended up keeping most of the important players during the summer. They will be aware that this situation may not last long since the parachute payments from the Premier League are set to run out soon.
Evans has been a key player and has played in all of the league matches this campaign. “The nature of this league is there are so many good teams who all think they can go and get promoted this year. I think it’s the toughest it’s been for a number of years and so it’s just about finding the consistency. The teams who have the most consistency usually come out on top – and we definitely have to find that. We have got to go to Fulham on Saturday and try and pick up points and get back to winning ways,” said Evans.
Blackburn Rovers midfielder Corry Evans states that he wants the club to achieve promotion back into the Premier League in the new Championship season. After being relegated to the second division of English football two years ago, Blackburn have been struggling to find consistent form that would enable them to compete in a play-off match or even qualify automatically to the top division. Their first season in the Championship after long time ended almost in a fight against relegation, while last season they finished a disappointing mid-table place.
A threat for the play-offs or even the automatic places never materialised throughout the campaign, but Evans says that he wants this to change in the new campaign. Last season, the club finished the campaign on a 12 match unbeaten run. Should they continue this in the new campaign, they could very well be in a position to finish in the top sides towards the end of the campaign. The club start the new season with a home match against Cardiff, who have just been relegated from the Premier League. Hence, this is a difficult match for Gary Bowyer’s men.
Upcoming matches against the likes of Blackpool, Norwich, and Wolverhampton Wanderers also look potentially tricky fixtures for the 1992 Premier League champions.
“We’re wanting to get promotion, be it automatic or through the play-offs; that’s our goal. It’s really everyone’s goal in this division because anyone can beat anyone. But I think the experience we had as a team last year gelled us well. We know our style and we know the way we want to play. Hopefully we can put that into good practice this year. It’s important we start with a bang and put a marker down for where we go from there,” said the former Hull City midfielder ahead of the new season.
