Mourinho stokes the fire ahead of tomorrow’s crunch clash.
Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has already fanned the flames ahead of tomorrow’s huge London derby clash against Arsenal, report the Mail, by claiming that former Gunners favourite Cesc Fabregas has already fallen in love with his new side.
Fabregas arrived at Stamford Bridge this summer from Barcelona, with Gunners boss Arsene Wenger reportedly having passed up the opportunity to bring him back to the Emirates Stadium, a decision that did not go down universally well with the club’s supporters.
Mourinho has now stoked the fire ahead of what has been one of the Premier League’s most enticing fixtures of recent years, claiming that Fabregas has already fallen in love with his new club:
“I think he loves Chelsea already. He’s so happy: the way he plays, the way he’s a member of the squad, the way he lives in this little blue village. It is like he’s here for a long time.”
