Antonio Conte tinkered with the line up for Chelsea’s FA cup semifinal against Tottenham and Fabregas feels he made the right decision.
Conte rested Hazard and Costa, with Chelsea playing Southampton on Tuesday, but both players were brought on in the second half.
The change was decisive for Chelsea, as Hazard scored a goal and assisted one in the 4-2 win. And Fabregas feels Conte was right to give priority to the EPL.
“I don’t believe so [win gives Chelsea a title boost], I am sorry,” Fabregas said at Wembley Stadium. “It is a different competition and one day you can go tothe final and the most important game for us, is still Tuesday.
“Getting to the final, is a big game, a big stadium and fantastic for the fans and everyone but the most important game is Tuesday and we have to keep it up. To get to another final, it is not easy to do nowadays, it is very competitive.
“Especially this Spurs side. They are very very strong and we have to be happy today. It is a happy day. I think during the season, this is a different season, a special season.”
“This is the first time Chelsea is not in Europe for a long time and maybe it has been a little bit of an advantage in this case because we didn’t have to rotate as much and he played a lot with the same team this season but you see today, you know, Ake came in and played very very well.”
“The last time he played was, I don’t know [a long time ago]. Maybe two months ago, Batshuayi the same. Willian didn’t start for the last five games and scores two goals so to have these kinds of players and then when we were struggling in the second half – we brought on these kind of big players and it worked very well today.”
Nemanja Matic scored a stunner in Chelsea’s 4-2 win over Tottenham in the FA Cup semifinal, with his goal giving Chelsea absolute control of the game.
The Serbian fired in the shot from 30 yards out with 10 minutes left, but insists it us not his best goal yet.
The goal is Matic’s first in over 300 days,but it doesn’t take the position of his best goal.“It was a nice goal,” he told BBC Sport.
“But first of all I want to say I am very happy for the team, that we’re going to play in the final. “It was hard against a very good team.
Congratulations to Spurs, who didn’t give up.“I am happy for my goal, it was a great goal, but it’s not the best I’ve ever scored. I scored a harder one in a Benfica versus Porto derby.
This is perhaps my second best ever.”
