Former Chelsea and Arsenal star, Cesc Fabregas has identified the Blues as the one team that would compete for the English Premier League title this season.
Fabregas, who completed a free transfer to Serie B side Como on Monday following the expiry of his contract at Monaco, insisted that Chelsea is obliged to win and to always compete for the English top-flight league title.
The 35-year-old is also confident Chelsea will come through a turbulent period off the pitch.
Speaking to Sky Sports News, the former Barcelona star said, “Many things have happened; changing the owner is always tough. Roman [Abramovich] has been outstanding at the football club, he invested time, money, and knowledge.
“The thing with Chelsea is that they’re obliged to win, to be competing always. I was there for five years and the mindset there is to win, to win, that is what I love about the place.
“Whether they’re playing well or not so well, whether they are up or down, they’re always there at the end of the day and it always makes me happy for sure.”
