Cesc Fabregas, a former Chelsea midfielder, has listed his top three Premier League teams to watch.
The Mirror said that Fabregas’ top three selections were Manchester City, Arsenal, and Brighton.
Fabregas provided the newspaper with an explanation for his choice, saying: “It’s the way they perceive the game. They are aware of when to accelerate, slow down, and find the appropriate gaps.
They are familiar when to quicken the pace and engage players. How often do we witness [Solly] March and [Karou] Mitoma hitting the open areas and scoring from behind when they play short, short, short? They comprehend football in the manner I adore and think it ought to be practiced.
It brings to mind a certain game concept we used to use. Football is swift, precise, and incredibly unexpected. If you press them hard, you’ll fall behind; if you press them softly, they’ll continue to play short and look for openings. I’m learning a lot from De Zerbi, and I find it to be quite intriguing.
Arsenal uses the 3-1-3-3 configuration, which places six players in front of the ball, he continued. It involves the coach having faith in their defenders’ ability to react quickly and retrieve the ball.
When that happens, they will be able to play a little more offensive football. However, when [William] Saliba was participating and hurt [last season], you could notice the difference. Mikel would admit to you that it’s not the same as how they can play.
