Cesc Fabregas has revealed he is learning new things under Antonio Conte’s guidance.

“I can understand there are doubts, the philosophy of the manager. He came in, wanted to see if I could adapt and I understand that,” Fabregas said.

“As a player, I’m someone who wants to play with the ball, maybe not so much the defensive side. But I adapted to the way he wants to play and hopefully I can play more.

“Now with Conte, I’m learning new things, new football. It makes it entertaining. I know sometimes I didn’t play as much but even in training, I’m learning and sometimes you think if you’ve been for a long time, won a lot, you’ve done everything and then you realise that in football you never know everything.

“Hopefully I’ve reversed the situation from the beginning of the season to now and I can keep playing like that to keep my place.”
