Cesc Fabregas has once again played down comparisons between the current Chelsea side and Arsenal’s Invincibles team.

Jose Mourinho’s men stretched their unbeaten start to the season to a club-record 17 games as they secured a 2-1 victory over Liverpool at Anfield on Saturday.

When you go to a stadium and feel you will get three points for sure, that’s when you will lose

Chelsea have only dropped four points in the league this season, inevitably leading to suggestions that the west London side could emulate the Arsenal side who remained unbeaten in 2003-04 on their way to the title.

However, former Gunners captain Fabregas played down such talk after Saturday’s victory on Merseyside.

“I said after the game against Arsenal that football these days is so difficult, it’s developed so much and on a day when you go to a stadium and feel you will get three points for sure, that’s when you will lose,” said Fabregas.

“We’ve only played 17 games in the season, it’s a great record that we haven’t been defeated but we could still have maybe 40 games to go.

“It’s a long way and we’ll see what happens, but we’re on the right track.”

Can Chelsea finish the season unbeaten in the league?
