Europa League By: Iseghohi Odianosen | 05/10/2018

Chelsea midfielder Cesc Fabregas has sent a message to Maurizio Sarri.

“It was a statement from all of us to the manager,” he told the Evening Standard.

“We are showing him that he can count on all of us. It was my first start of the season and a real test at Anfield as half of the team hadn’t played much.

“I hadn’t nor Emerson, Gary [Cahill], [Victor] Moses, [Willy] Caballero and Andreas Christensen.

“It was a big challenge because we didn’t have any rhythm. We have only been playing together in training.

“Up till last week, it has been difficult because the club has not been playing a lot — we were playing once a week so it’s easy for the manager to pick the same team, especially when it is doing well.

“But now we are in the Europa League, the EFL Cup and the League so there are a lot of games coming up and we will need everyone to be ready.

“I wish it never had to happen [playing in the Europa League]. I always said I never wanted to play in the tournament in a way because that would mean I was in the Champions League.

“But listen, you always have a first time for everything. Now that we are here, I hope that we can win it.”

He said: “Cesc has to improve his physical condition of course but I think that he is a great option in this [Jorginho’s] position.

“He doesn’t have to change his style too much because Cesc is very good in moving the ball like Jorginho, so we don’t need to change the way of football with Fabregas.”
