As promised, Spain manager Vicente del Bosque came up with a highly experimental line-up for the recent game against Costa Rica.
The team had suffered a 2-0 defeat against Netherlands in the previous game back in April. This shock score was yet another setback for the national team and it has been continuing since the World Cup 2014. Del Bosque has been urged by the Spain fans in order to try new players for the national team. The ageing names like Andres Iniesta and Iker Casillas could depart from the national team once and for all.
However, this will give a great opportunity for the likes of Cesc Fabregas to finally establish themselves on the international stage. The Chelsea midfielder is a crucial player for the national team but he has never got the attention as the likes of Iniesta. Part of the problem has been Fabregas’ positioning on the field. The 28-year-old has been shifted across numerous positions in order to accommodate the players. This one second was the case in the recent game against Costa Rica, but Fabregas made his mark felt by scoring an excellent goal. This was the Spain midfielder’s 14th goal in 97 appearances. He will join the growing band of Spain stars to have made more than 100 appearances. Continue reading
In 28 Premier League appearances CescFabregas has managed to score 3 goals and provide 16 assists which is a higher amount of assists than in any other seasons that the Spanish midfielder has managed to provide for any of his clubs.
During these last few months and weeks that are remaining in the Premier League, the influence that Fabregas has made for Chelsea has started to fade away but he is still considered to be one of the best players in this season.
Back when Fabregas used to perform for Barcelona, he was given the role of No.10 but now with Chelsea things have changed as Jose Mourinho puts the Spanish midfielder further behind in the pitch and this is one of the reasons on why Fabregas believes that he has been performing so much better and Chelsea have improved a lot more as well.
The 27 year old midfielder said: “Where I am playing right now is the position I like the most because I feel I can dictate the play and I feel in control. At Barcelona, I was playing as a false nine, as a No.10, everything except what I felt was my best position, but I was feeling comfortable because we had a great team and great players, so it was going well.” Continue reading
Former Arsenal midfielder Cesc Fabregas began his career with Chelsea in an impressive fashion. This has now been confirmed by the Spanish midfielder playing an important role in the club’s 2-0 win over Tottenham in the League Cup final.
After securing his first trophy with Chelsea, Fabregas spoke about the hunger to go on and win more titles in the future. The 27-year-old has already matched the total number of trophies that he won at Arsenal in his eight-year spell. Chelsea are still in contention for two more trophies before the end of the season. Fabregas says that they will use this title success as motivation going forward.
It was the perfect day for the blues after they also witnessed their Premier League contenders Manchester City lose against Liverpool, a few hours before kick-off. As a result, their advantage in the league over City remains at five points, but Chelsea have a game in hand. Continue reading
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
