The Barcelona midfielder, Cesc Fabregas, has told Arsenal Soccer News that his old club Arsenal has got a very strong side and the team is among the favourites to win the Premier League.

Arsene Wenger’s side didn’t start the ongoing season that well and didn’t manage to register a win in its first three matches.  But, the team came back into the tournament with a terrific win over Southampton a few days back. Arsenal outplayed Southampton and won that match by a huge margin of 6-1. The Arsenal players looked in supreme touch in that match and they made the match one sided. It was a brilliant display of versatile football by Arsene Wenger’s boys.

Fabregas praised Arsene Wenger for his ability to find talent. As per Fabregas, Wenger is a great manager. He never hesitates in giving opportunities to the youngsters. If he thinks that a particular player has got talent, he just gives him a go. He always backs the youngsters and motivates them to give their best on the field. That’s why, Arsenal has produced so many superstars.

Arsenal has been hampered by the exit of a few top quality players this summer including the Dutch striker Robin Van Persie. But, Fabregas thinks that the team would do well even without Van Persie. The Spaniard said that Arsenal is a team which doesn’t rely on one player. Van Persie played superbly in the last season, but, it doesn’t mean that Arsenal can’t win matches without him.

Fabregas, who had left Arsenal last summer, is struggling to find a place in Barcelona’s first XI in the ongoing season and there have been some reports of him being unhappy with the Barcelona’s manager, Tito Vilanova. But, Fabregas denied all those reports. He said that he is waiting for his chance and whenever, he gets the starting opportunity, he would try to grab it with both hands.
