Cesc Fabregas has had to face a chunk of the criticism for Chelsea’s poor form this season. The Spaniard feels that this is undeserved, but it is largely down to the impact that he had at the club last season.
Fabregas was an instrumental figure in Chelsea winning the league title – after a gap of five years – last season. He came up with a record 18 assists – most of them in the first half of the season – and a fair number of goals. This time around, he has scored only once and created only one goal for the team.
Cesc Fabregas, as many other people, also believes that Diego Costa did not deserve the ban that he was handed for his demeanour in the Arsenal game that had taken place earlier this month.
Costa has, however, completed his ban now and is all set to return to take on Porto in the European Cup. According to Fabregas, his countryman is annoyed at the moment and he has every reason to be in that sort of mood. Fabregas said, “You are never happy when you are treated that harshly and Diego is no different. He feels he’s hard done by and he is probably right.”
