Chelsea midfielder Cesc Fabregas has stated that the best managers he played under are Jose Mourinho and Arsene Wenger.

Cesc Fábregas noted José Mourinho and Arsene Wenger as his favorite coaches
Fabregas played under Wenger at Arsenal since he was 16 before leaving the club in 2011. The former Barcelona midfielder stated that Wenger was more important because he gave him the opportunity to show what he can do at the tender age of 16.

On the other hand, Fabregas praised Mourinho because he believed the former Chelsea manager gave him the belief he was lacking when he signed for the Blues in 2014. The Spanish midfielder endured a lukewarm final season in his three year spell at the Nou Camp before returning back to the Premier league.

Fabregas was disappointed with the way he could not win the Premier league title with Arsenal. Hence, the fact that he won the Premier league in his first season back to England under Mourinho in 2015 made him grateful to the Portuguese manager even more.

The former Arsenal midfielder also played under the likes of Pep Guardiola, Tito Vilanova and Tata Martino at Barcelona.

Several European giants are chasing Chelsea's Cesc Fabregas who is having a bad spell at Stamford Bridge. The clubs who are trying to lure Cesc from Chelsea include PSG, Inter Milan, Juventus, Bayern Munich and fellow Premier League competitors Manchester City.

Cesc Fabregas
The Spanish midfielder has endured a torrid season with Chelsea, scoring just one goal and three assists from 24 appearances, across all competitions. It was also reported by Corriere dello Sport that the 28-year-old Chelsea man is having tense relationship with the club staffs.

Cesc fabregas did not feature in Chelsea's last game, against Manchester United. The former Arsenal man joined Chelsea last year, from Barcelona and enjoyed a terrific comeback to the Premier League helping Chelsea winning the Premier League.

But the fortunes have turned for Chelsea and particularly Cesc Fabregas, with the form of both dipping in unbelievable fashion. The rumours are stirring that Cesc may leave the Premier League champions to win-back his career which as of the moment, is in turmoil.

Manchester City, who are expected to bring Fabregas's former boss- Pep Guardiola- to England, are favourites to sign the Spaniard, if he decides to depart from the West London outfit.

Chelsea midfielder Cesc Fàbregas has urged his under-performing teammates to improve their performances and pay dividends for their high salaries they receive.

Fabregas has criticised the attitude & behaviour of the Chelsea players
Fabregas also expressed his frustration of his team having a very bad season. The reigning Premier League champions had a bad start to defending the Premier League title, and Fabregas is hoping for a turnaround to Chelsea’s current form.

The Spaniard spoke about the responsibilities and discipline that every player in the team should replicate.

“If you are a big player and are paid like a big player, you have to perform and behave like a big player”, Cesc explained his sadness over the bad league campaign.

"As a player, you have pride. Ok, we cannot win right now the Premier League, but come on. We all have to do better.”

He also told about the great work Jose Mourinho is doing for a revival. Chelsea are currently 16th in the league table, with only 15 points from 16 games.

Cesc Fabregas, himself has come under stick for his string of poor performances.

Here are 10 stats from this week's UCL games:

*Eden Hazard missed a chance to open the scoring from the spot for Chelsea against Maccabi Tel Aviv. This made him only the fourth player to have missed three or more penalties in the Champions league since 2006/07. The other three players to have done so are Cristiano Ronaldo, Lionel Messi and Ruud Van Nistelrooy.

Lionel Messi
*After appearing for Barcelona against Roma, Lionel Messi became the youngest player in UCL history to have played in 100 games.

*Despite losing against Dinamo Zagreb, Arsenal have won 76 times in the Champions league -  the most by a team that has not won the competition.

*Dinamo Zagreb's win was also their first win in the competition since September 1999.

*Since his debut in 2004, only Xavi (24)  and Cristiano Ronaldo (23) have registered more assists than Cesc Fabregas (22).

*Roma's defence was excellent against Barcelona. This game was the one in which Barcelona had least shots on target (3) this season.

*Diego Costa scored his first Champions League goal for Chelsea. It was his first goal in the competition since last scoring for Atletico Madrid against Chelsea.

*Theo Walcott became the sixth Arsenal player to have scored 10 or more goals for the club.

*Arsenal's defence was shaky today and this game meant that the Gunners have just kept one clean sheet in their last 11 Champions league away group games.

*Messi's stats in the UCL after his 100 games - 77 goals, 22 assists , 4 trophy wins.

Chelsea star ​Cesc Fabregas made a very cheeky comment after a lengthy question from a French journalist in Chelsea's pre-match press conference ahead of their PSG Champions League tie tonight.

The former Arsenal and Barcelona midfielder listened calmly, agreed along to the question and then cut off his translator as he started to translate the question for him in English.

He said "Je parle Francais, mon ami", which means that he can speak French.

The translator had to stop for a moment as the play-maker broke out into a grin before giving up on the charade saying that he was joking.

Chelsea top the current Premier League table and in the last three occasions they have topped the league they have managed to win the title. Could Jose wrap yet another trophy in a year the Blues have looked the best. Despite away blues they look set to claim the trophy thanks to the brilliance of their two Spanish acquisitions- Diego Costa and Cesc Fabregas. Champions Manchester City failed to capitalize on a slip up at St Marys as they blew a two goal lead at the hands of resurgent Burnley. Burnley find themselves in the drop zone alongside Crystal Palace and Leicester City. The battle for fourth has intensified as there are six teams battling it out in the form of Manchester United, Arsenal, Southampton, West Ham, Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur. Realistically Manchester United who have spent over £150 million are expected to seal their spot easily, including their less than congested schedule what can derail their hunt? With one spot up for grabs, Arsenal will look to take their customary place on the table. The Gunners ended the Christmas period alongside Stoke with an impressive two wins. A feat no other side managed and a sign Arsene's men are finding their stride with seven wins in nine.

Football however does not have everything set in stone as Southampton have proved this season with an impressive showing, having lost several stars in Luke Shaw, Adam Lallana, Rickie Lambert, Dejan Lovren and Callum Chambers. They have remained in a strong position, despite a five game blip the Saints are above a Liverpool side that was very active in the transfer window and lost just one player, a quality player that is. This highlights the contrast in the two clubs, Saints bought well and their signings kicked on from the start. Brendan Rodger has had a mixed response as his players haven't all adapted as the Reds ended the year on the rise with a 4-1 thrashing of Swansea. West Ham, Spurs have also impressed and will light up the second half of the season. What a fight we have from the championship, European spots to the relegation arenas.

Players that stood out: 

Cesc Fabregas has amassed 13 assists this season, created 61 chances and made 1563 passes. He is the top assist machine in the whole of Europe and One of the best signings, if not the best in the season.

Graziano Pelle and Dusan Tadic have managed 59 shots and 119 crosses respectively as they continue to engineer Southampton's European quest.

QPR's Robert Green has been massive for the club as they look to secure a Premier League spot for next season. With such an impressive home record the England stopper has played his part as he made a season high 69 saves. The English goalkeeper has also conceded the most goals (31).

The Argentine has been prolific. A man on a mission as Sergio Aguero has scored 14 goals in

Eden Hazard has attempted 151 dribbles and then managed to execute 89. The Belgian highlights his dancing feet and abilities for the Champions in waiting.

Tuesday saw some exciting clashes, shocks, routine wins and quality goals from Germany to England to Morocco. Let us take look at the most impressive stalwarts of the day as the level of quality was too high. Chelsea saw an opponent sent off for a second time this week as Derby's defender Buxton walked. Buxton, on for the suspended.



Formation: 3-4-3

Roman Bürki

Rarely do you get the losing side feature a player in the impressive performance XI but the shot stopper was sublime. If he was having a bad day or the post was not willing to interfere it would have been far worse. Roman made a record 13 saves in the Bundesliga clash and despite losing produced a commendable display.

Filipe Luis 

The former Atletico man was lively. Sound in defense and a thorn moving forward for the Derby defense. His sublime left-footed free kick gave the visitors a second goal, which put them in the driving seat.

Juan Bernat

It was a quality display from the defender, who could have claimed a hat trick. Quiet in defense as there was no threat, but on attack Juan could have played as a forward and impressed. Striking the post a couple of times, including the piece of skill to take a long ball, and then deliver a strike which went in through a Thomas Muller header off the post.

Sergio Ramos

He was having a quiet game until it escalated. The Spaniard opened the scoring for Real madrid at the Club world Cup, conceded a penalty and managed to get a booking. Has now scored in every competition he has been involved in.

Eden Hazard

No one can stop the Belgian as he continues to evolve. Scoring the crucial first goal and providing Derby with problems all evening. Derby players ended up double, and at times triple marking him to stop his threat.

Cesc Fabregas

Back from suspension and took over from where he left off as the Chelsea maestro managed yet another assist to take his tally to 15. Creative genius!

Xabi Alonso

Despite the injury the class was evident in the hour he played. Remember how Chelsea got rid of Frank Lampard? Well Madrid could be wondering how much better they would be if they kept the Spaniard. Pinpoint passes all over the park.

Arjen Robben 
Arjen Robben
He is in the form of his life and is mesmerizing defenses. The Dutch master scored his 100th game in Bayern colors in his 184th game. He was the heart and soul of this side as they go twelve points clear for at least a day. Wolfsburg will face Dortmund tomorrow.

Cristiano Ronaldo



No goals from the World's best player but was pivotal in his sides domination as always. The Portuguese star managed two assist that included a quality cross to a certain Mr. Bale. Not as selfish on the pitch is he.

Marc Mcnulty

The Scottish striker managed to score the decisive goal as Sheffield United continued their fine run in the knockout cups. They will be in the semi-finals and this will be a goal Marc won't forget anytime soon.

Pedro Rodriguez 

A first half hat trick saw the Spanish international compound further misery on Hues a in the Copa del Rey. It was a much needed confidence boost for the out of favor player.

Coach - Nigel Clough

During this transfer window Chelsea have brought in some good quality players and this blog is where I will make a judgement on whether or not I believe that they are good enough to succeed at the club.

    Diego Costa:

Diego Costa
The man who knocked Chelsea out of the Champions League last season. He has proved that he can score at a top level, he has also proved that he can use his strength to his advantage. To me Costa is a Drogba like player, a player that is great in the air and can use his strength to hold up the play and create a chance. He proved on Monday that he has the ability to score in the league. He to me is the complete striker, someone who can hold up play, cross the ball, find space and most importantly score.

    Cesc Fabregas:

Cesc Fabregas
The ex Arsenal and Barca midfielder proved throughout pre season and Monday night that he was a very worthy investment. The midfield genius seemed to control every move that Chelsea made. He was an easy choice for the Man of the Match award and this was supported by the assist he was given by André Schürrle’s superb goal. Fabregas has been able to take on all the responsibility left behind after Frank Lampard departed. He has come in and has taken complete control of the midfield and shown that he is the man to lead every attack.

    Felipe Luis:

Felipe Luis
The left back has arrived on the back of some very good performances for Atletico. There is of course a debate on whether he is needed or whether Azpilicueta is good enough to play every game at left back. either way Luis has arrived and looks ready to fight for the left back position with all his heart. He is able to get up and down the wing with no difficultly and appears to be as solid as Cole was in his prime. Luis has already shown in pre season that he is already comfortable with the way that Chelsea play and has good link up down that left side. He has yet to play in the league but I am certain that it should not be long till we see him in the league.

    Dider Drogba:

Dider Drogba
The legend has returned. The man who won Chelsea the Champions League in 2012 has returned to the club and brought back so many memories for the fans. Granted he has lost pace but he seems to still have the strength and determination that has also been with him throughout his Chelsea career. This no doubt will drive him on through the  season and I can see him hitting at lest 10 goals and playing either up front with Costa or coming in to replace him. I do not believe that Jose will just use in every 5 games or so.
