Fabregas Gives Reason Why Chelsea were Beaten by Manchester City on Saturday. The former Barcelona star claimed thathis club Chelsea were not given enough time to prepare for the match.
Speaking to Chelsea club official website, Fabregas said;
“This was without a doubt the same Chelsea of last season.
“But what happened was that we came up against a City side who went into the game much better rested than we did. Nothing more.
Cesc Fabregas, revealed that his club knew that their encounter with City will be difficult.
“We knew it would be a difficult week, starting with the trip to Stoke last Saturday which as we know is always a complicated task,” he said.
“Then there was the trip to Atletico Madrid, arriving back early the next morning at 5am on Thursday, with practically only one day to prepare for the match.
“We faced a City team who came well prepared. They had home games and one extra day of rest.
“We are making no excuses but it was a difficult week and we have competed. We gave it everything and could not have done anything more.
“This time last year we were eight points behind, but it doesn’t mean anything. There is still a long way to go in all competitions.”
