first_imgCraig Burley claims summer signing Cesc Fabregas has given Chelsea a creative spark they didn’t have last season.The former Arsenal captain was outstanding on his Premier League debut for the Blues, having a hand in all of their goals in the 3-1 win over Burnley.Reflecting on the victory at Turf Moor on The Sports Bar, ex-Blues midfielder Burley said: “He performed so well, Fabregas. I think he will be a great signing.“Chelsea were one of the poorer sides last season in terms of midfielders threading balls through to forward positions to strikers and here is a guy who will absolutely bring that to the table.”Burley was impressed by Chelsea as a whole against Burnley, and reckons it will be a straight fight for the title between them and Manchester City, who beat Newcastle 2-0 in their opening game of the season.“I know it was against a team that are tipped to be in a relegation football, but I thought the football they played in the first half was excellent,” he said.“Chelsea and Manchester City have shown in the two games already why they have got that little bit more than Arsenal, Liverpool and certainly Manchester United.”last_img
