CESC: OUR SLUMP IS OVER

Midweek Sport - - SPORT -

CESC FABRE­GAS has fired out a ti­tle warn­ing to Man City, in­sist­ing Chelsea are back on track.

The Stam­ford Bridge side were caught by their ri­vals after Jose Mour­inho’s men drew against Southamp­ton and lost at Spurs.

But Chelsea have roared back, beat­ing Wat­ford in the FA Cup and fol­low­ing that up with a 2-0 home league win over New­cas­tle.

Mour­inho’s side now have a two-point lead in the ta­ble and Fabre­gas in­sists the mini slump is over as they pre­pare to travel to Swansea this week­end.

The Span­ish mid­fielder said: “There is never com­pla­cency at Chelsea, we just want to win ev­ery game. Of course, that’s not pos­si­ble through the sea­son. There are many, many games.

“You can al­ways have a bad day and things won’t go your way. But we are ready. Some of us had a lit­tle break.

“We have re­cov­ered from the Christ­mas sched­ule. It was tough, but we feel we had a few days’ rest.

“Los­ing to Spurs was a shock, but when you watch the game again you see that ev­ery chance they had, they scored.

“Things didn’t go our way, but credit to Tot­ten­ham, they played a good game. But that’s it, we are just look­ing to move for­ward now.”
