Cesc Fabregas vows that Chelsea will jump on any Manchester City slip-up

The Spain worldwide has already made 12 league starts this season - he made 13 in 2016-17 - and Conte hailed the 30-year-old.

But Fabregas said he was concerned about his future at the club during the start of 2016-17.

Speaking at a news conference at Cobham on Monday, Spain star Fabregas said: "I have to adapt myself, especially defensively to a new role".

"Well, I would be lying if I say that I wasn't anxious", said Fabregas, speaking ahead of Tuesday's Champions League Group C clash with Atletico Madrid.

"If you remember the second part of last season he started to play with regularity". You can give up or put your head down, be humble and work hard and show him he is wrong.

"Every time I had an opportunity I gave my all, I delivered and from then on we started to create a relationship".

Neymar's Brazil meanwhile will have to negotiate a group including Switzerland, Costa Rica and Serbia as they seek a sixth title. With Colombia, Poland, Japan and Senegal in action, the group may not be as celebrated as other groups of the tournament.

"Chelsea are a really good team, " Merino said.

Defending champions Chelsea have recently got into the groove as well, having dropped only two points in their last seven league outings, but will see the gap between themselves and City restored to 11 points if City beat the Hammers as expected.

César Azpilicueta recorded the most passes completed by any one player in a single game this Premier League season with 120 passes.

It's true at the end of the year I have a year left, but let's see what happens. I'm where I want to be, enjoying my football, playing week in and week out and I want to enjoy that. When the moment comes to talk about different things I'll be here, ready for it. With Hazard peaking at the right time after recovering from his injury and Morata firing on all cylinders, the Italian manager will be eager for some more of his experienced players to turn up and lead the way.
