Cesc Fabregas has revealed that he prioritises winning the Champions League above all else and hopes to do it with Chelsea within the next five years.

The Spanish playmaker has been a revelation at Stamford Bridge since joining from Barcelona in the summer. He has already formed a deadly partnership with fellow new arrival Diego Costa and leads the Premier League assist charts with nine in ten games.

He put pen paper on a £200,000-a-week deal after Chelsea agreed to pay the La Liga giants £27 million and now looks set to inspire the Blues to a Premier League title. However, Fabregas has his eyes on a much bigger prize; the Champions League.

‘’ It is important; the Champions League is the competition I still need to win," he told the Daily Mirror.

‘’It would give me enormous satisfaction. We have a great team. I do not know if it will happen this year, next year or in the next five years. That is football.’’

Champions League glory

Fabregas can put Chelsea one step closer to their second Champions League title tonight as they travel to Maribor for the fourth game in the group stage. Jose Mourinho's men could qualify with a win against the Slovenian outfit tonight so long as Sporting Lisbon fail to beat Schalke 04.

The former Arsenal skipper has never won the Premier League, failing to inspire the Gunners to the title during his eight-year spell in north London. He was part of the team that fell just short in 2006, losing to his eventual club Barcelona in the final.

The new Invincibles

He was also unlucky to have just missed out on being part of the Arsenal Invincibles team. But he has a good chance to achieve that feat with his new club, who remain unbeaten and untroubled ten games into the campaign.

‘’When people talk about us going unbeaten, we’re just laughing it off" - Gary Cahill

The growing pressure on Chelsea to go the season unbeaten has been downplayed by Fabregas, who insisted that Arsenal team were the only ones capable of doing it.

His team-mate Gary Cahill has revealed that they are still laughing off suggestions that they could go 38 games without defeat.

Laughing off suggestions

Cahill told the same source: ‘’When people talk about us going unbeaten, we’re just laughing it off.

‘’I think it gets in the heads of the opposition and will do so even more the longer it goes on. It does put a feeling in their minds that we haven’t lost before they come and play us and gives us confidence too.

‘’Even when things haven’t gone perfect for us, like over the last week, we are still unbeaten. You have to respond to adversity and that’s what we do. We are reacting and responding when things go against us.’’
