Mourinho impressed by versatile Fabregas

Jose Mourinho says Cesc Fabregas’ versatility in midfield and ability to play for the team has been “fantastic” this season.

The summer signing from Barcelona has 19 assists and five goals this season, playing in both a deeper role and as a ‘number 10′ behind the main striker.

Manager Mourinho said: “He is doing what we need and adapting to many different situations and roles.

“He is doing every job the team needs him to do. His contribution has been fantastic.”

Chelsea top the Premier League by 10 points prior to Sunday’s away game against Fabregas’ old side Arsenal, the team in second place in the table

Mourinho has no concerns about how Fabregas will respond on his first return to Emirates Stadium.

“I don’t know what reception he will get,” Mourinho added. “But I am not worried for him. If he has some bad reactions he will be ready.”
