The Barcelona midfielder Cesc Fabregas has said that he and the club wants the archrivals Real Madrid to win matches because it only motivates them to do even well. Barcelona currently have an eight point advantage over Real Madrid at the top of the table and are the favourites to lift the title.

Even though it is very early stages in the season, this is regarded as a significant advantage that is going to be very tough for Barcelona to concede over the remaining matches in the season. Still, the former Arsenal midfielder Cesc Fabregas is not willing to allow any complacency within the game.

He has said that Barcelona are extremely keen to lift the la Liga title once again after being relegated to the second position last season. This also meant that Barcelona are unable to complete four successive league title victories, but they will be trying once again from this season. Fabregas also said that he is extremely happy to be playing alongside a player like Lionel Messi. He thinks that the Argentine superstar is the best player in the world. He has also praised the way he reacts to the passes from the former Arsenal man.

"We always want Madrid to win, because it forces us to play even better. For that reason, we have to win every game if we want to win the league. Leo is very easy to link up with, to play one-twos with. It's an honour for me and many others to play alongside him," said Fabregas. Cesc Fabregas has made a decent start to the new season making five goals in 16 matches. However, he is yet to reach the levels of his Arsenal career. The midfielder has been playing more of as a false striker for Barcelona this season.
