Cesc Fabregas has admitted that Chelsea FC are already thinking about next season after their disappointing form this term.

The Blues have struggled to produce consistent form under Antonio Conte this season after having won the Premier League title in the Italian manager’s first season in charge at the club last term.

Chelsea FC are currently in fifth place in the table and looking as if they are going to miss out on Champions League qualification for next season.

The west London side were pegged back and held to a disappointing 1-1 draw by West Ham United at Stamford Bridge on Sunday afternoon to further dent their hopes of finishing in the top four this season.

The Blues are now fifth in the table and 10 points behind fourth-placed Tottenham Hotspur with just six games left to play this term, meaning that Champions League qualification is looking unlikely.

And 30-year-old midfielder Fabregas has admitted that he and his team-mates have already started to think about next season.

Speaking to the Daily Star, Fabregas said: “The top four seems very unlikely now. So it’s all about preparing for next season.”

Chelsea FC still have the chance to win a trophy this season and they will take on Southampton in the FA Cup semi-finals at Wembley later this month.
