SHAFAQNA – The Spaniard scored his first Premier League goal in a blue shirt in Saturday’s 2-1 win over Crystal Palace, adding to the seven assists he has already notched this season
Cesc Fabregas insists he draws more pride from Chelsea‘s stylish attacking football than his own personal tally of goals or assists.
Fabregas notched his first Premier League goal in a blue shirt in Saturday’s 2-1 win over Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park to add to the seven assists already to his name this season – the best total in the division.
But the Spaniard insists it is the increasing chemistry he shares with Eden Hazard and Oscar – along with the impressive nature of Chelsea’s all-round performances this season – that pleases him most.
“I like to play this kind of football, and Eden and Oscar do as well, and the three of us connect very well and that goal showed well the qualities of the whole team,” Fabregas told the club’s official website.
“Now I am playing deeper in midfield there will be moments during the season when maybe I go five or six games without a goal or an assist, and I am more proud about the team work, the discipline, the way we coped with the sending off, than my goals or my assists. I give those to other people to talk about.
“We played a good second half when 10 against 10. We did have difficulties in the first few minutes but thankfully Oscar scored a fantastic goal and it helped us, and 10 against 10 is a different game and it was a solid performance.”
