Cesc Fabregas made only his sixth Premier League start of the season for Chelsea during our 3-1 win over Swansea City on Saturday.
Despite his reduced role at Chelsea under Antonio Conte, Fabregas stayed at Chelsea to fight for his place.
“Experience and maturity give you this because in the beginning when I didn’t play, I told people not to speak to me because I was really upset,” Fabregas said.
“Time and age help you understand that the most important thing is always the team. Don’t get me wrong, I want to play but sometimes you have to fight for it.
“Sometimes the easy way is to escape, to run away, to sulk and to want to leave, to create a drama.”
