Antonio Conte: These are my plans for midfielder Cesc Fabregas at Chelsea


Chelsea manager Antonio Conte was full of praise for midfielder Cesc Fabregas after the Spaniard made a very positive impact after coming off the bench against Watford.

The 29-year-old produced a phenomenal pass for teammate Diego Costa as Chelsea scored two goals in the last ten minutes of the game at Vicarage Road.

Conte says the former Arsenal captain is working very hard in training and will definitely be a key asset in his squad this season.

"We all know Cesc [Fabregas]," Conte said.

"He's a great player with great technique, with a good pass and a good assist.

"I made this substitution because at that moment I wanted more quality and I saw Watford were thinking only to defend their goal.

"I am pleased with his attitude. He is working very hard during the training sessions to show me he deserves to play. I want to see this, that all the players show me they deserve to start the game.

"I am a very happy manager when I see this commitment. When you have many players thinking about the team and not himself, it's important. This situation is happening at Chelsea."
