Manchester City were much better rested to beat Chelsea - Cesc Fabregas

Cesc Fabregas has apparently downplayed the significance of Chelsea's 1-0 defeat to Manchester City by insisting the Citizens were simply 'better rested'.


The reigning champions were outclassed by Pep Guardiola's men in the Premier League last weekend with former graduate Kevin de Bruyne bagging the winner in the second-half. As a result, the Blues are six points behind table-toppers City heading into the second international break of the campaign.

Cesc Fabregas is a Liability Alongside N’Golo Kante, Says Robson

Stewart Robson is well known for his time with Arsenal, and the former midfielder claims that Cesc Fabregas was a liability for Chelsea in the opening match against Burnley.


The blues suffered a surprise defeat on the opening game of the season, despite being the reigning champions, as Burnley were able to take advantage of two red cards for the home team. Gary Cahill was given a straight red card in the first half, while Fabregas was sent off for a double yellow in the second half. Robson believes that Antonio Conte cannot consider playing Cesc Fabregas and N’Golo Kante in the same midfield.

FABREGAS TO CEMENT HIS EPL GREATNESS

Cesc Fabregas has been a top talent from when he first started out as a teenager in the Premier League. He was tasked with skipper duties at a young age too at Arsenal, helping him develop faster. He has consistently provided at least ten assists for over six seasons in the Premier League.

Fabregas bailed Chelsea from the creativity conundrum last season and he is expected to continue to do so this term. With Juan Mata and Oscar gone, Fabregas was the man the team relied on in the 2014/2015 title winning season. The experienced playmaker delivered the title as he played a key role in that squad.

Fabregas fires a shot towards Arsenal and their FA win

Chelsea’s season of 2016-17 was very impressive as Antonio Conte lifted the English Premier League title during his debut season at the helm of the club but not everything was perfect as they did crash out from the 2017 FA Cup.


The finals of the 2017 FA Cup was played on May 27 of 2017 between Arsenal and Chelsea. Goals from Alexis Sanchez and Aaron Ramsey was enough for the team of Arsene Wenger to claim a triumph as the final scoreboard displayed 2-1 with Chelsea’s only goal arriving from Diego Costa.

Antonio Conte Praises Chelsea Midfielder Cesc Fabregas as Decisive

Chelsea manager Antonio Conte has heaped praise on midfielder Cesc Fabregas by saying that the Spaniard has been decisive when it comes to contributing towards Chelsea’s title challenge.


The Spaniard has largely been used as an impact substitute by the manager. Fabregas has largely come on as a substitute late in the matches in order to make an impact. Nemanja Matic has been preferred as the first choice alongside N’Golo Kante. However, the attitude towards Fabregas has certainly changed in the second half of the season with Conte witnessing first-hand the ability of the former Barcelona star to make a decisive impact on matches.
