Former Barcelona midfielder Cesc Fabregas has lavished praise on his former team’s attacking threat provided by the likes of Luis Suarez, Neymar, and Lionel Messi.
The trio were absolutely irresistible in the second half of last season and this led to Barcelona winning the three major trophies on offer. More extravaganza is expected from the Barcelona forward lineup when they go up against Chelsea in a pre-season friendly match. After all, they come into the game as the European champions whereas their opponents have just been crowned as the Premier league winners.
During his time at the Camp Nou, Fabregas played as the false number nine on a few occasions. Now, the team has been more intent on creating lots of chances primarily through the fixed front three. Neymar plays on the left whereas Messi has been moved back to the right-wing. This allows Luis Suarez complete freedom in the centre of the park.

Fabregas says that he is extremely happy to see such a vibrant attack for Barcelona. He reckons that it will take a lot from Chelsea to overcome their opponents. (more…)
