Chelsea captain John Terry has issued a statement of intent towards upcoming opponents Arsenal about the deadly form of Cesc Fabregas and how he will unleash his full potential at his former side, Daily Star reports.
The 27-year-old has made a huge impact upon his return to the English Premier League with six assist in six matches and is now seen as they main playmaker for the Blues.
Terry admitted that his partnership with new striker Diego Costa has been working wonders and is currently aiming to beat Arsene Wenger’s men in order to remain at the top of the table.
He said: “I was delighted [when he signed]. It was a big statement getting Cesc, as well as Diego. It sent shockwaves in the Premier League.
“They have come in and both hit the ground running which is good as well. Cesc has played in the Premier League before but it can take a few weeks or months to get going but they have both started great and we are doing well at the moment.
“Fabregas has made a huge impact. I know you kind of expect that from him but most of our chances come from him opening up defences.
“Not a lot of people can see the passes he does let alone make it.
“He has been a great addition to us and long may he continue opening up defences. I don’t know how much he is looking forward to playing Arsenal — you will have to ask him.
“But we are top of the League and it’s where we want to be. We want to continue playing well and stay there.”
