Mourinho: Fabregas fine form expected

Jose Mourinho has claimed Cesc Fabregas excellent start to the Premier League campaign is more than expected.

The Spain international midfielder has been in fine form since his £30m move to Chelsea contributing four assists in 3 games and Mourinho believes the 27-year old understanding of the league has made him more settled.

“He doesn’t need to adapt,” Mourinho told Sport of Fabregas.

“This is a league that he knows, that he had played in for years [with Arsenal]. He was moulded there.

“When he came to Chelsea he was very happy to come back to this league.

“When a boy is happy, he doesn’t suffer any kind of pressure, he knows that his coach trusts him, knows that his mates admire him, feels important – [his form is] not a surprise to me.”
