Is it time to introduce Cesc Fabregas from the start in games for Chelsea?

This subject has been debated throughout the local pubs and in the stands around Stamford Bridge. Should Cesc Fabregas start more games that he misses out on between now and the end of the season?

On Sunday against Hull City with seventy minutes to go, Chelsea were winning 1-0 but Hull to their credit were putting up a good fight. Cesc Fabregas was introduced and the game changed in an instant. Chelsea imposed their dominance on the game, took the sting out of Hull's approach and Fabregas became the focal point of our midfield with 32 touches of the ball, a 100% completion rate, created two chances with one of them being an assist for Gary Cahill to make it 2-0 and win the game.

Fabregas remains a Chelsea favourite with the supporters and this was demonstrated with almost deafening chants of  "Fabregas is magic, he wears a magic hat!" as he took possession of the ball and our set-pieces. He like Antonio Conte, would have been very aware of the message some could say coming from the stands.

It's games such as Hull City, West Brom and Middlesborough that Fabregas could really make the difference but as yet, remains on the Chelsea bench with Antonio Conte favouring the pairing of N'Golo Kante and Nemanja Matic. I am not here to criticise the manager in any way and with the fact that we find ourselves where we are now, who is anyone to complain? I am just trying to give an opinion.

Without question going to Anfield on Tuesday night next week to face Liverpool is not a game that I would consider starting Cesc at all. Chelsea will need to be at their resolute best up against the pace of the Liverpool attack and you would continue the same pairing 100% without question.

Arsenal at home in my view is different based on the strength of the opposition in the midfield area because let's face it N'Golo Kante demonstrated last season that he has the legs to get around the pitch to close people down.

I just think that the game on Sunday is the perfect demonstration of what Cesc Fabregas brings to the side. He calms things down, knocks the ball about and become an instant focal point for others to play off of whereas sometimes in tight games such as those we struggle to create anything through the middle in the deeper areas (City and Watford away for Diego Costa are perfect examples).

Fabregas himself spoke of his lack of first team action this season after the victory over Hull and said:

"That was nice. I play football to win and enjoy. When I don’t play I’m sad and I don’t enjoy it but I’m happy the team is doing well.

Football is my life, it’s everything to me. Every time I’m on the pitch I try to do my best.

In this game it went well again so I just need to keep going and show the manager I deserve to play." - Source: The Sun.

So there we have it. There is an argument for and arguments against his selection to start in games under Antonio Conte. What do you think?
