Cesc Fabregas has claimed he should be given more chances after his recent performances in the last couple of games.
Fabregas scored his first goal of the season as Chelsea got the better of Sunderland to go six points clear at the top. Antonio Conte decided to hand a rare start to the Spanish midfielder instead of Nemanja Matic. Fabregas didn’t disappoint his manager as he was quite brilliant against the Black Cats. He gave some delightful passes and also scored the solitary goal for his team.
He was linked with a move away to Stamford Bridge after not being picked by Conte. He returned to the starting XI in a 3-1 win over Manchester City and also set up Chelsea’s equaliser for Diego Costa.
The midfielder who won the Premier League in his debut season at Stamford Bridge insisted that he is now hoping for more game time, “It’s a bit our fault because we’re playing good football, we had such a good performance but we need to kill games off.
“We had so many chances but the performance was very good. We felt strong.
“We want to keep winning, this period in the year is important and we can say a lot. You have seen many times that teams win titles with 1-0 wins. Hopefully we can keep it up. But the result doesn’t reflect the game.”
“People forget that tonight is just the second time in my life that I have played this system. I am getting used to it, I have lots of players in front of me in space and protection behind me.
“In football today people forget very, very, very quickly who you are, and what you can do. Hopefully now I can get a run of games to keep my fitness high up and show what I can do more often.”
