Cesc Fabregas will be a key player in Chelsea’s predicted successful season although being overshadowed by team-mate Diego Costa.
We all have heard the buzz new Chelsea star Costa makes since his arrival at the club this summer, and it’s probably fair that he is attracting all attention, as he already scored seven goals for the Blues.
But his immediate success cannot just rely on his efforts; his teammates are obviously contributing to the glory the man receives claiming the first Barclays Player of the Month award this season.
Cesc Fabregas who joined Stamford Bridge for £27 million this summer transfer window is another Spaniard responsible for placing Chelsea three points clear at top of the Premier League table.
The 27-year-old midfielder is yet to open his Premier League goal account with Chelsea but has contributed with six assists in five League fixtures.
Setting up two of the three Chelsea goals in the opening match of the season against Burnley left the player to be rewarded man of the match, although Costa netted twice in the same afternoon.
And repeating the same performance against Swansea two weeks ago was just the icing on the cake that confirmed he would be a regular contributor in the glory nights at Stamford Bridge - he will be one of those to applaud at the end of the season.
His strengths have well improved Chelsea’s midfield potential, with his talents for key passes and to place some clever through balls it has a lot increased the Blues creativity upfront.
And holding on to the ball makes Fabregas a fantastic playmaker, always looking to provide goal opportunities for his peers, and Mourinho has found the perfect replacement for Frank Lampard who made the weekend sensational after scoring against his old team.
Fabregas also showed his skills to finish off some great passing movement upfront, as scoring in Chelsea’s Champions League Group G opening match against FC Schalke allowed the Blues to avoid to start their European campaign on the losing foot.
Defensively Fabregas has his own contribution too; playing in front of the defence the Spaniard put a lot of energy in chasing his opponents when they have the ball in their favour.
But the midfielder will have to improve with tackles as his losing one left Schalke running wide and open the scoring last week.. Winning aerial duels is another fields that Fabregas will have to improve.
