Ian Wright warns Liverpool FC about 30-year-old Chelsea star
The Arsenal legend warns Liverpool FC about Chelsea's influential Cesc Fabregas ahead of their Premier League clash
Ian Wright has warned Jurgen Klopp that Liverpool FC can’t afford to give Cesc Fabregas space when Chelsea make the trip to Anfield on Saturday evening.
The Reds will be looking to bounce back from a disappointing 3-3 draw with Spanish outfit Sevilla in the Champions League on Tuesday night after Liverpool FC squandered a 3-0 lead.
Liverpool FC have won their last three Premier League games after scoring 10 goals and keeping two clean sheets in victories over Huddersfield Town, West Ham United and Southampton.
The Merseyside outfit were 2-1 winners against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge before Liverpool shared the spoils in a 1-1 draw with the Premier League champions Chelsea last season.
Chelsea were 4-0 winners against West Brom at The Hawthorns last weekend as Eden Hazard scored twice and made an assist in a dominant performance from the Belgium international.
However, former Arsenal striker Wright singled out Fabregas a potential danger man for Liverpool FC in their Premier League clash at Anfield.
“Right now, you’d have to fancy Chelsea [to win] because they will keep going,” Wright told The Debate on Sky Sports.
“I’m not sure if Liverpool FC will give someone like Cesc Fabregas as much space as West Brom gave him because if they do they’re going to be in trouble.”
Fabregas made two assists in Chelsea’s 4-0 win against West Brom at The Hawthorns to extend their winning run to four games.
The Blues have won the Premier League title in two of the past three seasons under Jose Mourinho and then Antonio Conte.
