Fabregas: 'I Needed This!'

Fabregas: 'I Needed This!'

Cesc Fabregas must have woken up this morning and thought: 'did last night really happen? Or was it an amazing dream?'

That question would have been answered when he tried to get up after running 8 miles last night.

Fabregas' best performance of his career, along with the best performance you're ever likely to see from a team saw Arsenal domainte AC Milan and grab a well deserved 2-0 win.

Not only was it the best performance of his career, but scoring THAT goal was one of the best moments of his career, according to Fabregas.

'It was one of the best moments of my career and I went straight to the boss because without him I would never have had the chance to play in a game like this,' he told Arsenal.com

The Spanish midfielder admitted that he has not been at his best since he suffered an injury before Christmas, but says that he is back to his best now: 'Maybe I have not been at my best since my injury, but now I feel great once again.

'This performance has been very important for my confidence. After I had started the season so well and then had an injury, I was not playing the way I used to and I was a bit upset. I needed a performance like this.

'When you look back on your career, these are the nights you are going to remember.

'We have to be very proud of what we have done. We went over to our fans, and you could also see some of the Milan fans clapping. You could see they like this kind of football and that we played well.

'The Milan players all said: 'well done, we hope you win it now'. In Italy, they have a lot of respect.'

Loved that picture where Cesc and the whole team embraced le boss. For only that one time did he look the boy he actually was as he's so happy that he's about to cry. Saw in the ATVO interview that when he's talking in front of the camera, Carlo Ancelotti sought him out and, ignoring he's being filmed, wanted to shake Cesc's hand. He came of age long ago, but this is where people will stop calling him a 'boy' or 'kid'.

Did he ever need this!, with his goal tally dried up and his game having been patchy at best, he has been well below his own high standards for too long, hopefully Cesc (and all the lads) can now kick on and hit some storming form to get us where we need to be.

The midfield musketeer with the eye of a hawk.

I love how they do that how far a player has run thing... I don't see the point really since you could run around all night and not touch the ball. I remember that against Olympiakos first leg, it recorded Cech as having run over 2000m. But fair play to the lad - he kept trying even though his goal scoring hasn't been good recently and got his reward.

He constantly tunrs up for the big matches. Think Real Madrid, Juve, Liverpool and Man Utd this year as well as last year when he assisted Ade and now this. The sign of a great player

Cesc needed this goal, the team did, and so did we. Great timing, and its pleasing to see him get back in form for the crucial run-in to the season end.
