The 27-year-old, who joined Chelsea for £27 million in July 2014, has been one of the reasons for the fine form of the Premier League leaders.

“I knew that coming to Chelsea – as the big club they are – with a big manager, I'd learn a lot, and that's what I'm doing,” the Spaniard told UEFA.

“He's put me in a position I'm enjoying as the best in my career. I'm helping the team, and enjoying working under him.

“Hopefully he will take us to the next level to win this competition (the Champions League) and many more for Chelsea."

Fabregas has won 14 trophies with Arsenal, Barcelona, Chelsea and the Spanish national team throughout his career, but the Champions League is still missing in his trophy cabinet.

“I'd be lying if I said it wasn't a competition that is special to me,” he added.

“Ask a player what he wants to win in his career – he'll say the World Cup and the Champions League.

“It's not an extra pressure, but I want to win it. I will give my best and hopefully we will go through into the next round.”
