Fabregas Disappointed With Results

Chelsea midfielder Cesc Fabregas said that he is disappointed with the result against Manchester City and that it was a result that he finds hard to accept. He said that the team prepared well for the game and they were hoping that they could come out with a positive result. Cesc Fabregas said that it was always going to be a difficult game to play against Manchester City and that it became much more difficult when they conceded a goal at the beginning of the second half.

The former Barcelona player said that Manchester City is one of the best teams in Europe at the moment and that you need to be at your best if you want to get a result against them. The Spanish international said that they came with a clear plan to frustrate the City team but unfortunately for them, it backfired when they conceded a goal at the start of the second half.

He said that the players did not know how to respond at that moment and that they were afraid that they could concede more goals if they tried to attack Manchester City. Cesc Fabregas said that it is unfair for some pundits to say that the players were not ready to fight on the pitch. He said that they wanted to defend deep and to not give the City forward the space to run behind them. This is the reason why they were not pressing high up on the pitch.

Cesc Fabregas said that they need to flush this match out of their system and focus on the next game. He said that they will be facing Barcelona for the return leg of their Champions League tie and that it is important that they reach the next round. He said that this will be a difficult game again and that it is important that the fans remain behind the team.
