MAN OF THE MATCH

During Barcelona’s 4-1 triumph over Betis on November 10 that saw Cesc Fabregas being named man of the match as he scored 2 goals and provided 1 asists, the victory with a bittersweet taste as he picked up an injury that left him unable play with Spain against Georgia in the World Cup qualifiers.

Spain however did manage to cope with the absence of Cesc Fabregas as they claimed a 2-0 victory against Georgia and secured their place into Brazil for next year.

The 26 years old midfielder made a full recovery just in time to play against Granada and being an influential player for his club as he scored a penalty kick and created an assist for his teammate.

He gave an assist and he scored two goals in the match against Betis. After the game, Cesc told the press that he’s pleased with his current good form: “I’m on good form, I always try to vindicate myself and make a difference.”

Fàbregas admitted that “the team was a bit slow at the start, after the first goal we got better and in the second half we were very superior.” The midfielder then thanked his manager for his words of praise after the match even though he wasn’t named to the starting team in the mid-week showdown with Milan: “I know what his ideal starting team is, the rest of us need to push hard.”

Barcelona is starting to display the talent available in their squad as they are dealing with the absence of Messi excellently and Fabregas is shining even brighter than ever before for the Catalan team as he is showing why Barcelona offloaded £35 million in order to sign him from Arsenal.
