Chelsea’s robust midfielder Cesc Fabregas has expressed his thoughts on the best football of his career so far and picked Chelsea ahead of Arsenal. The former Arsenal man joined Chelsea last summer and has already dished out ten assists in the Premier League, while was in the thick of the action against Schalke in Chelsea’s 5-0 victory. The Spanish International is loving his role under Jose Mourinho.
” “I don’t remember playing as well and enjoying the football [this much],I’ve played in World Cup finals, European Championship finals, Champions League finals with great teams. I am not saying West Bromwich Albion [last Saturday] or Schalke were the best games in which I’ve played – probably they weren’t – but definitely they were games I enjoyed a lot. I feel right now I am playing the best football of my career.” said Fabregas.
““When I chose this challenge [of joining Chelsea] it’s because I felt it could be this way. But I didn’t come here to just play well and that’s it. I came to win trophies and if I could play well and enjoy myself, all the better. There will be games I cannot enjoy myself the way I am now because other teams will approach games differently. But the most important thing for me is we know what we are doing: when we defend, when we attack, when we have to slow the pace, go quicker. We are being composed, mature, disciplined, and are playing very well.””
Fabregas joined Chelsea from Barcelona, wherein he was deployed as a false nine. But the Spanish International believes that his best position lies in the midfield and his loving life with his midfield partner Nemanja Matic.
“This is my best position, 100%,I feel more in control of the game: I touch the ball all the time; I feel happy; I go and get the ball from here, from there; I can go forward and Oscar drops deep. So I feel free, I feel confident, I feel in control and that’s what I like the most in football. Sometimes in the last three or four years in the national team and Barcelona, I was playing like a No9. I have to do it for the team and I enjoy it, it’s all good, but here where I am playing is where I enjoy playing my football the most.”
Although the Spanish International shunned and rubbished talks of Chelsea already running away with the Premier League. He believes that the next few month could be pivotal in deciding the Premier League campaign.
” “There is a long way to go. We have played 12 games, there are 26 to go – it’s a long way especially with the Christmas period.”
