Cesc Fabregas had a good pre-season for Chelsea, but has been forced to watch games from the sidelines after being forced out of the side due to a knee injury.

The 31-year-old has now recovered from his injury and is looking to break into the team upon his return, with Mateo Kovacic and Ross Barkley the two favourites for the advanced central midfield position.

Fabregas who is known for his technical qualities has revealed that he has been impressed with the team’s performance and the new manager’s game suits him perfectly.

“We have a new coach with new tactics, new philosophy, new everything to be honest,” Fabregas said.

“It’s always interesting and exciting to see what is going to happen. We have been winning, which is important but we need to be more consistent. It’s not easy – it takes time. I think the coach is happy.

“I believe a lot in this team. My type of football has always been to have the ball, to play with the ball, create chances. I have a forward mentality, I always look forward and have movement with and without the ball.”
