Chelsea star Andre Schurrle has declared that the addition of former Arsenal midfielder Cesc Fabregas to Jose Mourinho’s squad has made the team significantly better, as reported by the Daily Star.
Fabregas was a surprise signing this summer from Barcelona, crossing the divide between the Blues and their rivals Arsenal by agreeing a £30 million move.
The Spain international is heavily associated with the Gunners, but a lack of interest from the Emirates Stadium club meant that he moved to Stamford Bridge instead.
The 27 year old was sensational as Chelsea won 2-0 against the north London side, having a huge impact against his former club.
Schurrle also featured in the match, and is of the belief that the addition of Fabregas has helped Chelsea step up another level this season.
The World Cup winner said: “He’s amazing, the way he plays. He really improves our game from last year.
“We really wanted this win, we were very confident from the start. We were mentally and physically strong and at the end it was a deserved win.”
The Blues look to be the undoubted title favourites at this juncture in the season, and have been undefeated thus far in the Premier League.
