Former Arsenal play maker, Cesc Fabregas opines that the much anticipated UEFA Champions League final match billed for the 28th of this month might go into extra time, just like the last time both teams, Real Madrid and their city rivals, Atletico Madrid, met two years ago.

The Chelsea’s Spanish midfielder predicted an even UEFA Champions League final between both teams on Saturday, noting that the football game might go beyond the regular play.

The Ex-Barcelona midfielder who was pictured taking a dip with his girlfriend Daniella Semaan, 41, in Miami, played against both teams when he was playing in Spain. The 29-year old star used the holiday to relax ahead of the Summer Championship in France, with Spain among the favourites to lift the coveted prize despite successive victories. Spain lifted the trophy in the 2008 and 2012 seasons and are gunning for the third consecutive victory. Read More

Cesc Fabregas prefer to see Leicester win the title than Tottenham Hotspurs

Cesc Fabregas has stated that he would want to see Leicester City win the league rather than their London rivals, Tottenham Hotspurs.

This could add further spark to the next game which sees Tottenham visit Chelsea on Monday.

But some pundits believe that this comment has added pressure on Chelsea to beat Tottenham. But with Leicester City visiting Manchester United on Sunday, there is the possibility that Leicester would have already been crowned as champions.

If not, then Chelsea will have a major say in the destination of the Premier League title as they still have to play against Leicester City in the final game of the season.

Eden Hazard has also stated that he want Leicester City to win the title and has vowed to have a good game to help beat their London rivals.

Chelsea, who is currently the defending champions, have had a poor campaign this season and is currently 9th in the league. Their poor start to the season has even caused their manager Jose Mourinho to be sacked and replaced with GuusHiddink. Read More

Fabregas: ‘’It was the players who let Mourinho down’’

Back in December of 2015, Jose Mourinho was sacked from his managerial position in Chelsea and this was due to the string of negative results that the Premier League club sustained under the tutelage of the Portuguese coach.

Jose Mourinho was heavily critiqued in this period of time with the media insulting the playing style, formations and decisions that the veteran manager was doing in his last year in charge of Chelsea.

However, Cesc Fabregas has recently come out and stated that it was the performers of the Premier League club which had to be blamed for the string of underwhelming and Jose Mourinho did not deserve all the criticism that he received.

Cesc Fabregas was once regarded as a legend around North London

Cesc Fabregas was once regarded as a legend around North London – especially around the Emirates stadium. He had spent eight years at Arsenal before moving to his home club Barcelona. However, he has become enemy number one all of the sudden after making the move to Chelsea, who are one of the big rivals for Arsenal apart from Tottenham.

This combined with Fabregas winning the league title in his first season at Chelsea – after having failed to do the same in eight years at Arsenal – has made him viewed as one of the opposition. The midfielder, though, says that he still has the same love for Arsenal that he developed while playing more than 300 games for the club.

The 28-year-old will be coming up against his former club once again. He has already been against Arsenal twice last season. On both occasions, Chelsea came out in front. His role in the home match against the gunners was especially impressive, as he provided the assist for Diego Costa to score one of his 20 league goals. Fabregas is set to face more abuse from his former supporters when Chelsea take on Arsenal in the Community Shield on Sunday. This match is the traditional curtain raiser for the Premier League campaign. Read More

Vicente del Bosque came up with a highly experimental line-up

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. Read More

Cesc Fabregas has managed to score 3 goals

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.” Read More

Cesc Fabregas emerged as Top Assist Maker

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.

Different Stroke Of Fabregas In Chelsea

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.
