It’s quite ironical, isn’t it? That what could easily have passed for a horrible season and year for Cesc Fabregas at Stamford Bridge is in fact being talked about in this manner? But this is the reality, isn’t it? This season has been extraordinary for the talented Spanish international. He started off on the bench, but rather than sulk and let frustration get the best of him, he kept his focus on getting better, and today, he’s starting games again.
The 2014/15 season was remarkable for Fabregas. He went on a fabulous run of assists, and helped us secure the title. That season he was a regular starter; so it’s easy to understand how he ended up leading the assists chart, but this season, it’s an entirely different case. Cesc Fabregas hasn’t started up to 10 games in the Premier League (just 6 league games) this season, but he already has 7 assists to his credit, with 3 goals to cap it off. Obviously, it’s far less than his tally from his first year at Chelsea, but when you compare the number of appearances he had then to this one, then you’ll understand why it’s impressive. For a player not to play often enough, yet still manage to be at his best every time he gets a chance is wonderful. I mean, it only makes you wonder how many goals and assists he’d have if he started more. Cesc Fabregas has always been good, I can’t deny that, but his latest performances make you think he’s never been so good.
Personally, I think he is enjoying a very good moment of his career, made possible by him being benched by Conte at the start of the current campaign, and as a fan I really hope he keeps shining and continues to help us to the top.
