Chelsea’s Cesc Fabregas rejects Arsenal comparisons
The Chelsea midfielder insists that the Blues are not getting carried away with their unbeaten start to the season
Cesc Fabregas insists that he is paying no attention to talk of Chelsea emulating Arsenal’s Invincibles side from 2003-04.
The Blues stretched their unbeaten start in the Premier League to 12 games thanks to Saturday’s 2-0 victory over West Bromwich Albion to move seven points clear at the top of the table.
I don’t compare us with any other big sides because we haven’t won anything
However, the 27-year-old former Arsenal captain insists that Jose Mourinho’s men are purely taking each game as they come and says they won’t get carried away.
“We know it is a long way to go and we don’t look at all the comments from TV, press or fans because if you start looking at it now, everyone will think that Chelsea has already won the title and it is not like that,” said Fabregas.
“We are professionals and some of us have been playing these type of competitions for a very long time and we have only played a few games really [this season]. It is a long way to go and we still have to do better than that.
“I don’t compare us with any other big sides because we haven’t won anything, this is just the beginning.
“Everyone is talking well about Chelsea now, how great we are and then you lose two games they will talk about how bad we are.
“We have been long enough in football not to fall into this trap and to just keep going the way we want to achieve things.”
