Cesc Fabregas certainly look like he’s been enjoying his football since returning to the Premier League as Chelsea and Jose Mourinho reap the rewards.
But this change in form from his time at Barcelona is not just down to chance, with the Chelsea midfielder believing it’s down to the position he’s deployed in.
“I feel that right now I am playing some of the best football of my career,” Fabregas said. “I am in my best position, 100 per cent.”
“I feel more in control of the game, I touch the ball all the time, I feel happy, I go and get the ball from here, from there, I can go forward, Oscar drops deep. I feel free, I feel confident, I feel in control and that’s what I like the most in football.”
“Sometimes, in the last three or four years in the national team and Barcelona, I was playing like a No 9. I mean, I have to do it for the team and I enjoy, and it’s all good. But, here, where I am playing today, it’s where I enjoy my football the most.”
