Chelsea midfielder Cesc Fabregas has claimed that this season’s start has been frustrating and a nightmare due to his injury problems.
The Blues have started their 2018-19 season with four Premier League wins under new manager Maurizio Sarri following Antonio Conte departure.
However, Fabregas is yet to feature this season as the Spain international has suffered a knee injury during Chelsea’s 2-0 defeat to Manchester City in the Community Shield.
The 31-year-old is now fighting to get back in the Sarri’s squad but is likely to fall down the pecking order with N’Golo Kante, Jorginho and Mateo Kovacic are all in good form.
“It has been frustrating and a little bit of a nightmare to be honest,” the Spaniard said.
“Now I am seeing the light at the end of the tunnel. It seems likes it’s nearly gone.”
“We have a new coach with new tactics, new philosophy, new everything to be honest.”
“It’s always interesting and exciting to see what is going to happen.”
“We have been winning, which is important but we need to be more consistent. It’s not easy – it takes time. I think the coach is happy.”
