Cesc Fabregas, the Chelsea playmaker, urged his teammates to remain focused as there is still so much to play for this season in the Premier League despite the title race is over for his team.
Chelsea are basically out of the title race as Manchester City have not been beaten yet this season in the domestic league and they are 15 points ahead of second-placed Manchester United. However, Fabregas believes that his team have to chase them until it is mathematically impossible to finish first and they have to do their best to claim the best possible position in the league.
The former Barcelona and Arsenal player spoke about his side’s situation in the league as he said, according to Sky Sports: “We are having a good season, but obviously in the Premier League Man City are having a super season. So when you see a team being so advanced in the table and so many points in front, it is not easy. That does not mean that the others are doing badly, but they are doing incredibly well. Everything is going their way, they are scoring many times in the last minute – this is the credit to them obviously because they keep pushing.”
He also added that they are still in different competitions: “Everything goes their way, everything they touch turns to gold. In a way, this is a bit frustrating for the others, but we just have to keep going. We are in the Champions League, semi-finals of the Carabao Cup, we are still in the FA Cup, so there is a lot to play for.”
In the end, Cesc Fabregas claimed that anything is possible in the Premier League: “If you ask me now, it is difficult to catch them because they keep winning. But we are still mid-January and this is the Premier League and anything can happen. A lot of competitions and games in front of us and them as well.”
