“I think when you play every three days it’s very
difficult but every coach tries to make the best decision for his team, it’s
important to have rotation otherwise you risk having players who are very
tired, in this case Cesc.

“He’s played every game from the start of the
season because don’t forget, Bakayoko and Drinkwater were injured. We played in
China and Singapore with just Kante and Cesc, and then N’Golo was injured but
Cesc continued to play. He played every game, and played very well in every
game, so I took this decision and it was important because when you give a new
player this type of chance, in a big game, it shows the coach trusts all of his
players. I can count on Drinkwater.”

“Would I like to renew? Yes, because it is a club that
has always treated me well. I believe the fans have a lot of respect for
me and I have a lot of respect for them. I have given my all for the
club for the last three-and-a-half years.”

“This is a fantastic club for me and I have had a fantastic time here. Hopefully another contract will happen. Time will tell.”

“I know that people panic after players reach 30 and
stuff like that, but I don’t believe in this. I feel well, I feel young
in my mind. I train every day as hard as possible. I think in the last
48 games I have played in 47, and I only missed one because I was
suspended against Tottenham in August.“

“I always try to give my best. I will play at any moment, even when I’m sick or not 100 per cent.”

Chelsea ‘set to offer Cesc Fabregas a new contract amid interest from Manchester United. Fabregas’ existing contract at Stamford Bridge is due to expire in 18 months, when the playmaker will be 32. Chelsea have a policy of only giving one-year contracts to players over the age of 30, and it remains to be seen whether they will adjust that to accommodate a player who is said to be integral to manager Antonio Conte’s plans. The Times says Conte has ‘given Fabregas assurances that he remains a key part of the squad at the Bridge, following the summer arrival of Tiemoue Bakayoko from Monaco.

Eden Hazard admits he would ‘be on a much higher level’ if he had the vision of Chelsea team-mate Cesc Fabregas:

‘I have had the chance to play with (Cesc) Fabregas and I can say that he has the best game vision in the world,’ Hazard said. ‘He does not run fast, technically he does not make gestures. But he has that thing, and he has it since he was born. If I have his vision of the game, I’d be there… (placing his hand over his head.) I’d be on a much higher level. The guy takes the ball, does not even look and puts it right where he wants to just behind the defender. And behind, the guy will score. I say to myself: “But how did he see that?” Sometimes, in the team, between us, we say to ourselves: “But why is he doing that?” And, in the end, the pass is magnificent.’
