Fabregas: No more excuses

In an interview prior to Arsenal’s 1-0 win over Wigan on Saturday, Cesc Fabregas said that he believes that after beating both Manchester United and Chelsea so far this season, the Gunners now have no excuses for not performing against the so-called ‘smaller’ teams.

Arsenal have struggled this season against sides they would be expected to beat – losing five games in the process. But the 21-year-old Spaniard believes that after beating Chelsea at Stamford Bridge, the Gunners can find a new run of form.

“I don’t think you can win the league beating Chelsea and Man United – all the big teams – but then play against teams you’re supposed to beat and lose concentration.”

“We’ve shown we can beat the big teams so now there are no excuses for us not to do the same against the other teams.”
