It's a case of "win or win" for Arsenal skipper Fabregas

Posted By: Staff

London, Mar. 27 (ANI): Arsenal skipper Cesc Fabregas might be returning to St Andrew's - the scene of the most horrifying moment in the career - for Saturday's clash with Birmingham, but winning the Premier League title is all the Gunners captain is focusing on right now.

While Fabregas has not forgotten the stomach-churning injury handed out to striker Eduardo on February 23, 2008, the team, he insists, has moved on.

"This is a big day for all of us, but, it has nothing to do with what happened two years ago, - that is all finished now. Yes it was a very, very bad injury for Eduardo and a very difficult moment for Arsenal Football Club," The Sun quoted Fabregas, as saying.

"But we are not the kind of people who dwell on two years ago and all that happened there. Eduardo is well again, he's back playing again."

"So for us it's all about right now and the future - not going back into the past. It is a big game for other reasons now - not for revenge but for something more important than that. It's because we want to win the league, not settle old scores," he added.

However, Fabregas knows that victory won't come easily and his team-mates will have to fight all the way to claim three vital points.

"I remember it was a difficult game at the Emirates until Andrey Arshavin scored in the last five minutes to make it 3-1 to us. So we cannot count on three points, we have to go out and get them," he said.

"It is simple - it's a case of win or win. Nothing else will do and it doesn't matter how we win, just as long as we win.

Obviously it's good to play well, to play attractive, entertaining football. We pride ourselves on that at Arsenal," he added. (ANI)
