Chelsea news: Joe Cole and Jamie Redknapp reveal what makes Cesc Fabregas special | Football | Sport


That is according to former Chelsea star Joe Cole.

Fabregas has been lighting up Stamford Bridge this term and been laying goals on a plate for Alvaro Morata.

“In Cesc Fabregas you’ve got a diamond,” Cole said on Sky Sports.

“There aint no one else like him in the Premier League – maybe David Silva – you get legs around him, you get him on the ball in good areas, get him to turn and then Morata running in behind, Hazard getting onto the ballad he’s been used so well.

“I think he’s got another five or six years in him at the top, because he’s not a sprinter is he?”

And Jamie Redknapp agrees and thinks Chelsea’s set up suits him down to the ground.

“Some of his passing is out of this world,” Redknapp said.

“As a centre back if you go too tight he can play the ball long and over the top and on your head. 

“He is an incredible player and I think the way their system is working at the moment – last week they had Drinkwater and Kante and they said to Cesc you’ve got no defensive responsibility, just get on the ball, make us play. 

“And today it’s going to be fascinating to see who marks him, if you give him space he’s the man who can really hurt you.”
