Cesc Fabregas believes Chelsea can retain their Premier League title despite being 10 points adrift of Manchester City.
The former Barcelona and Arsenal midfielder has spent the majority of his career challenging for silverware but now finds himself in unfamiliar territory with the Blues 16th in the table.
Chelsea have just two wins in eight matches in the Premier League this season and trail City by 10 points but Fabregas has not lost faith. “I still believe we can win the league,” he said.
“It’s not going to be easy but a 10-point gap at this stage of the season is not impossible. Last season we took22 points from our first eight games but this time every team has lost at least one. “Manchester City lost to West Ham and Tottenham when no one expected it, Manchester United and Arsenal have also dropped points. No one at Chelsea is happy with our current position but I would prefer to be here now than at the end of the season
