Chelsea midfielder, Cesc Fabregas, has appealed to Maurizio Sarri to alter his position in the squad, after scoring the winner in their 3-2 win over Derby County in the Carabao Cup on Wednesday.
The Spaniard has only featured in a Premier League match this season but has been consistent in cup encounters.
The 31-year-old admits that he is no longer fit to play all matches for the Stamford Bridge side but maintained that he could do than just being a back up for Jorginho.
“I know it is difficult mentally [not playing in the Premier League], but after playing so many years, I think I can read a coach’s brain easier.
“I know exactly what position I’m in. I’m not saying I can play every three days for 90 minutes for 60 games a season now. I probably can’t do that in a sharp way any more. That’s why I try to just enjoy it and be up for it,” he told Sky Sports.
Fabregas believes that he should be used in the attacking role rather being confined to defensive midfield.
“I didn’t play in the league for the first three or four months under Antonio Conte until a game against Manchester City, which changed my way in Antonio’s head. After that I played in every game.
“The only thing I have to try to change in this manager’s way is that he only sees me as a player in front of the defence.
“I think in his mind I can only play there, but I have been playing further forward all my life,” Fabregas added.
