Cesc Fabregas sends warning to Chelsea's rivals after impressive win
Chelsea star Cesc Fabregas has claimed the club will need their squad this season after a huge win in the Champions League.
The Blues eased to an opening day win, but the player made sure to mention the sheer amount of games they have in comparison to last season, where of course they weren’t in the Champions League – and missed out on the League Cup latter stages as well.
Not only that, but he said the team are getting better and better – and it seems that the club could well be contenders to retain their title despite a poor start in the Premier League.
Now, they’re looking stronger and stronger – and you can see the latest betting odds for the Premier League here. In terms of their Champions League campaign, they couldn’t have seen a better start – and it was needed given their group is no easy task to navigate.
“It’s a good performance, a good result,” Fabregas said.
“You never know if goals [difference] will count at the end of the group stage.
“I think it’s a good performance from everyone. We are getting back to our best.
“We rotated five players. We have nine games in 21 days. It’s a difficult period.
“We weren’t used to this last year as we weren’t in the Champions League.”
