Chelsea’s Spanish midfielder Cesc Fabregas thinks he should be pushed further forward and not at the front of the defence.
This is coming as a response to Sarri’s game plan of starting the experience Spanish midfielder at the base of the midfield in the EFL cup matches.
Since the arrival of the new manager, 31-year-old Cesc Fabregas has only featured in one league game with his most appearances coming in the Carabo cup as a deep-lying midfielder.
The former Barcelona and Arsenal player hopes that Sarri will take note of him after his exploits for the side in midweek where he scored the winning goal against Derby County.
He claims he is aware that he is not getting younger and that it will be foolish of him to play in every game but he however hopes that he can feature regularly in the premier league behind the attacking trio of Hazard, Willian and Morata or Giroud as he is more influential in that position.
‘I know it is difficult mentally [not playing in the Premier League], but after playing so many years, I think I can read a coach’s brain easier,’ the Spaniard said after the win. ‘I know exactly what position I’m in.
I’m not saying I can play every three days for 90 minutes for 60 games a season now. I probably can’t do that in a sharp way any more. That’s why I try to just enjoy it and be up for it.’
For the Spaniard to feature for the first team, he’ll have to work tirelessly as the current midfield combinations of Jorginho, Kovacic and Kante are making impeccable contributions for the team.
