Cesc Fabregas claimed that he has never enjoyed a football match as much as Chelsea’s 2-0 win over West Brom on Saturday.

First-half goals from Diego Costa and Eden Hazard handed Jose Mourinho’s men victory to keep them top of the Premier League table.

And Fabregas was delighted by the manner of the Blues’ win at Stamford Bridge.

“I don’t think I am exaggerating if I don’t remember playing and enjoying a football match as much as I did personally in the first half,” Fabregas said.

“We played outstanding football. It is always difficult after internationals because the team doesn’t have time to work on many things and prepare the game but I enjoyed it a lot, particularly the first 45 minutes.

“Some people who didn’t watch the game will think 2-0, it was just an OK game but it was much more than that.

“It was a beautiful performance, very consistent, a clean sheet, we created plenty of chances and we had control of the game.

“That is why I think we need to be more effective in front of goal and score more goals and send an even bigger message to our opponents.”
