Fabregas hasn't started a game in the 2016-17 Premier League season so far after a string of substitute appearances under new manager Antonio Conte ahead of Saturday's trip to the midfielder's former employers Arsenal.

"I think it was vital for us to beat Leicester", he added.
"Cesc is an intelligent player, a clever player and he sees the game, he feels the situation". "I'm seeing him very focused, very concentrated, during the training sessions".
