Cesc Fabregas is playing outstandingly well despite not featuring every week under Antonio Conte, according to Chelsea hero Pat Nevin.
The 29-year-old has found chances hard to come by at Stamford Bridge this season, but has performed to his maximum potential whenever he has been played by manager Conte.
Fabregas netted a brilliant goal against his former club Arsenal at the weekend and the Spain international proved his worth once more, with Nevin saying he is producing some of the best football of his career despite being one of the more stand-out performers while with the Gunners and Barcelona.
Speaking about Chelsea’s strength in depth, Nevin said: “The back-up is phenomenal.
“Indeed it is almost offensive to call the likes of Cesc [Fabregas], Willian, Pedro and JT [John Terry] back-up players when they don’t start.
“Cesc is playing some of the best football he has ever played but can’t get a start every week.”
Fabregas has only made nine starts in all competitions this term but has bagged four goals and come up with seven assists.
