Cesc Fabregas looks determined to help Chelsea return to winning ways when they host Manchester City in the fifth round of the FA Cup on Sunday afternoon.

The 28-year-old played the full 90 minutes as Chelsea were beaten 2-1 by Paris Saint-Germain in the first leg of their Champions League last-16 clash in the French capital on Tuesday night.

Despite the defeat, the Blues produced an admirable performance and head into the return leg next month knowing that a 1-0 win would secure their progression to the quarter-finals of Europe’s elite club competition.

But before that, Chelsea must turn their attentions back to domestic affairs and their cup showdown with City at Stamford Bridge this weekend.
