Two games, two late wins gives by Diego Costa, 6 points and a +2 goal difference that give them the fourth place in the table.

After a first half poor of emotions and chances, Watford took the lead at minute 55 with a goal by Etienne Capoue.

Chelsea, however, was always in control of the game and the hard work paid at minute 80 when Michy Batshuayi, entered 7 minutes before to replace Oscar, picked up a loose ball and equalised.

After seven minutes, Diego Costa scored another late winner after the one of last Monday night against West Ham, and gave other three points to Chelsea: Cesc Fabregas provided the assist.

Another crazy celebration for Antonio Conte, and another self confidence and enthusiasm injection for Chelsea.

After being dropped off in the win in the Premier League opener against West Ham Cesc Fabregas must have not felt the best way and rumours of him leaving Chelsea before the transfer window shuts down in the end of this month arosed again.

But after the game Blues head coach Antonio Conte dumped water on fire saying: “Cesc is Chelsea’s player, and I’m happy about him, with his attitude and behaviour.

“He must know from before that when we are a great team like Chelsea it can happen that I have to take a decision before the game to choose a starting XI.

“That can happen that Fabregas is not in the starting XI, but it can happen for all the players. It’s important to see always the right attitude. Because we must fight this season and it’s important to stay together in every situation.

“But then the shape can improve and can change all the situations. Now I took this decision but the next game I can change or not.

“When a coach takes this decision there is always a reason but I prefer to keep this to myself.

“But I repeat I don’t see any problem and I’m very happy to have these players, to train these players.”

Everything happened after the final whistle, when Fabregas went to the Reds dressing room to offer his apologies that, of course, were accepted.

Chelsea manager Antonio Conte believes Cesc Fabregas has “no excuse” for being sent off with 20 minutes remaining to play in the friendly against Liverpool.

He said: “In this period sometimes the fatigue it can bring a bit of.. .to go too late in a situation.”

“As I know Fabregas is a good man and not a player to have this situation. I am sorry for him and every Liverpool player.”

“Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp said of Fabregas’ challenge: “It’s a red card, he came by us in the dressing room and said sorry. He came too late in the challenge, of course.”

“Sometimes in life if you are too late you get a red card, especially in football. That’s how it was.”

Chelsea won 1-0 over Liverpool in their first International Champions Cup game, that just ended in Los Angeles, USA.

The winner was scored with a header by Gary Cahill, who was assisted by Cesc Fabregas on a corner, after ten minutes.

The same Spanish midfielder was shown a red card at minute 70 for a late challenge on Ragnar Klavan, but anyway it seemed an harsh decision.

Liverpool had a gol disallowed for offside in the end of the fist half but, anyway, it wasn’t a great game, with few emotions, but Chelsea showed already a good solidness in defense.

The Blues will play Real Madrid in the next game, on Saturday 30 July at Michigan Stadium, with kick off at 8.30 pm BST.

Chelsea star Cesc Fabregas has been linked with a move to Manchester United yesterday.

New manager Jose Mourinho is said to be keen on signing the Chelsea midfielder this summer, despite a host of Red Devils’ fans would not be happy to welcome a man who played for two of United’s biggest rivals.

In fact, the 29 year-old played 283 Premier League games for both Arsenal and Chelsea in his Premier League career.

Spanish international midfielder Cesc Fabregas has been linked with a possible move to Manchester United this summer.

Incoming manager Antonio Conte has been in the market for several midfielders already this summer with the likes of Kante, Nainggolan, Joao Mario and Andre Gomes all being strongly linked with the Blues. This would suggest that Conte will be wanting to put his own stamp on things and may not have a place for Fabregas in the side.

Fabregas moved to Chelsea in 2014 after Jose Mourinho admired his footballing ability and it is thought that they both still share a good friendship since Mourinho‘s exit from Stamford Bridge.
