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.
Cesc Fabregas has attributed this poor season to a lack of effort on their part. He said that as Champions every team wants to beat them and that they have failed to prepare themselves for this challenge. He hopes that they will be able to prepare themselves well for next season and that they will be a lot more competitive as from the start.
Fabregas has thanked Hiddink that has devised a system that allows him to play more freely and to participate more in the team attack. He added that at some moment during the early season slump he forgot how to play football, and it is thanks to Hiddink that he got his form back.
