Chelsea's title hopes could evaporate in less than a week: Fabregas

Posted By: Staff

London, Feb.2 (ANI): Skipper Cesc Fabregas admits Arsenal's title dream could be over in less than a week.

Third-placed Gunners face Premier League leaders Chelsea on Sunday still smarting from a 3-1 thrashing at home by Manchester United.

Arsenal were thumped 3-0 by Chelsea earlier this season and Fabregas reckons it is win-or-bust at Stamford Bridge with another year of frustration looming.

"It's never a good time to play Chelsea, whether you are five points clear or five points behind them. They are a strong side and have been playing together for a long time. We have to beat them to stay in the title race," SunSport quoted Fabregas, as saying.

"If you don't believe, you don't win things, and we are still there, definitely. I'm not going to lie to myself. Chelsea were better than us, Manchester United have been better than us," he added.

"It's something we have to think about and make sure it doesn't happen again," he said. (ANI)
