Chelsea face Barcelona in the second leg of the UEFA Champions League, and the game is one of the biggest in the round of sixteen.
Many have written Chelsea off in that game, but Fabregas who’s looking forward to the game has assured fans that the players will put in a good performance.
“It’s a big game for everyone I think, for the whole club, and I think for English football,” said Fabregas.
“It’s always great to welcome these fantastic teams in European football. It’s a massive night for the players, for the club and for English football in general. Hopefully we can do well and give a good image of what we can do and give a good performance.’
Fabregas also insists he will not have any problems putting his emotions to one side as he attempts to knock his former club out of the Champions League.
He added: “Of course, it’s my hometown, it’s the club I supported for all my life, but once you step on the pitch it just goes away. I did it before with Arsenal. I don’t try, it just happens naturally. You want to do well for your club and that’s it.”
