Chelsea midfielder Cesc Fabregas started the season spending time on the sidelines but the playmaker forced his way into Antonio Conte’s plans as the season progressed.
Fabregas revealed he got himself back into the team through hard work and belief.
“I feel in great shape,” said Fabregas.
“I’ve been feeling like that since early December. At the beginning it was frustrating and if you don’t get into the team then you don’t really know what will happen.
‘But through hard work and belief I made it happen. I’ve worked hard to get back into the team and I feel I’m getting the rewards and have made it happen.”
