Chelsea back on track…Says Cesc Fabregas

Fabregas CESC Fabregas believes Chelsea are firmly back on track with their Premier League title challenge after their mini-slump around the turn of the year.

The Blues were caught by Manchester City at the top of the table on New Year’s Day after drawing 1-1 at Southampton and then losing 5-3 at London rivals Tottenham.

However, they returned to winning ways by beating Watford 3-0 in the FA Cup and followed that up by defeating Newcastle 2-0 at Stamford Bridge last weekend, as City drew at Everton, to move two points clear again at the summit.

“There is never complacency at Chelsea, we just want to win every game,” Spanish playmaker Fabregas told the Evening Standard. “Of course that’s not possible through the season, there are many, many games.

“You can always have a bad day and things won’t go your way. But we are ready. Some of us had a little break.”

“We have recovered from the Christmas schedule. It was tough but we feel that we had a few days to rest.”

“Losing to Tottenham like we did was a shock, but when you watch the game again you see that every chance they had, they scored.”

“It was one of those days where we hit the post, Ramires and Cesar Azpilicueta also had a chance.”

“Things didn’t go our way, but credit to Tottenham, they played a good game. But that’s it, we are just looking to move forward now.” — Sportinglife
