Cesc Fabregas will be up against his former side when Chelsea and Barcelona meet in the second round of the UEFA Champions League.

Fabregas is expecting a tough game against the Catalan club, and also spoke about their tactics and style of play.

“I think they’re still a great side. You can see with Ernesto Valverde they play a different type of formation, especially when they defend they play more of a 4-4-2. You can see that everyone is committed, everyone is giving their all, defensively and offensively,” said Fabregas.

“They are a team that try to put the first pressure very, very high, always working to have the ball, so if we can pass this first phase of their pressure, if we have the cool head to do that and not put ourselves under too much pressure, I think we can hurt them, because they will leave a lot of spaces at the back. We have days now to work on the game and I’m sure the manager will find the best solution.”
