Chelsea midfielder Cesc Fabregas has revealed his EPL team of the season so far.Look away now Chelsea fans, because no Chelsea players made the list.
The 28 year old who moved to Stamford Bridge from Barcelona two seasons ago played a vital part in Chelsea’s success last season but has struggled to exert the same influence as Chelsea continues to capitulate this season.Fabregas was a special guest on Sky Sports’ Monday Night Football, with Spurs looking ominous as they recorded a 4-0 win over Stoke at the Britannia Stadium and the Spain international was asked to pick the 11 players to have impressed him the most during the current campaign.Fabregas chose Manchester United’s David De Gea in goal, saying “It wasn’t a simple selection, because I think Kasper Schmeichel has done brilliantly and he deserves to be there as well, but De Gea has saved so many points at the end of the season for Man Utd. God knows how many”. Fabregas then named Arsenal’s Bellerin at right back,insisting “i like the way he plays. He’s very fast and when players take him on he’s fast to recover. He’s confident on the ball, and moves forward creating chances”.

Fabregas opted to partner Tottenham’s Toby Alderweireld alongside Robert Huth, with Southampton’s Ryan Bertrand completing his defence, and a midfield quartet of Mahrez, Dele Alli, N’Golo Kante and Dimitri Payet.Vardy and Kane also completed the list but Fabregas reserved special praise for Ryad Mahrez who he says is his player of the season.” Id have to go for Mahrez (for player of the season) because he makes things happen for Leicester through the whole season. You can say the same about many players, like Vardy and Kane, so many players – but the way Leicester are playing, it has to be a talented player like Mahrez”.Why not?’ he added when asked if Mahrez could fit in to one of Spain’s top sides.”Let him enjoy first this season. Let’s see if he can first get a Premier League medal and then we can talk about it.But he has the talent and he works hard. I believe he can be in a top club soon”.
His team of the season- De Gea; Bellerin,Alderwiereld,Huth,Bertrand;Mahrez, Kante, Alli, Payet;Vardy and Kane.
