Cesc Fàbregas – Chelsea & Spain
FIFA 15 Rating – 84
Predicted FIFA 16 Rating – 87
Returning to the English Premier League with Chelsea last summer after a successful period at Barcelona, Fàbregas has had one of the best seasons of his career. Chelsea won their fourth Premier League title, this season and Fàbregas has played a major part in this. Starting in 32 league games this season, Fàbregas has scored three times, but of far greater importance he has provided a career best of 18 assists. Although not scoring as many goals as in his time with both Arsenal and Barcelona, Fabregas is a key player in Chelsea’s midfield, offering fantastic creativity to provide chances to teammates such as Diego Costa and Eden Hazard.
Internationally, Fàbregas is still used as a squad player by the national team having only started two European Championship qualifying games this season. Having been used sporadically used in Spain’s poor World Cup showing, Fabregas will be looking to cement his place in the international team over the coming season in the run up to Euro 2016.
As Chelsea look to defend their Premier League title and pursue a second Champions League title, Fabregas will again be an important cog in the Chelsea midfield. An excellent passer and provider, Fabregas will be the player that Jose Mourinho looks towards to help unlock opposition defence’s.
