Chelsea midfielder Cesc Fabregas believes the Blues deserved a better result tonight vs Barcelona at Stamford Bridge based on the performance Antonio Conte‘s side produced on the pitch vs the Spanish giants.
“It is such a shame really. I thought we were very good, we executed the game plan really well, we were compact, solid, played as a team and created lots of chances – Willian could have had a hat-trick – but we go home sad because a fantastic performance is not a fantastic result,” Fabregas told BT Sport. “It is still open though and we have showed that we can compete and we will need another excellent performance at the Nou Camp to go through. You have to have a lot of personality to play against this team who has 70% of the ball. We have to go there to attack and score because 90 minutes defending at the Nou Camp is an eternity, it is a suicide mission. We have to play our game.”
