That’s the opinion of Garth Crooks who has been impressed with the Spaniard for his reaction to being dropped to the bench by Blues boss Antonio Conte.
And Fabregas showed his talents in the 3-0 win over Bournemouth on Boxing Day when he came into the side for the suspended N’Golo Kante.
Crooks told BBC Sport: “It is at times like this that managers observe those players who are not making the team on a regular basis but who nevertheless have a role to play if their attitude remains right.
“Cesc Fabregas has been central to so many successful campaigns over the years and it must be rather difficult to accept that your services are not in the same demand as they once were.
“Given room, the [Cesc Fabregas] will kill you with his passing ability”
“Nevertheless, Fabregas has accepted this fact with amazing grace and produced some outstanding performances for Chelsea when called upon.
“The game against Bournemouth was one of those fixtures. This must be in part down to Antonio Conte who is displaying some remarkable man management skills.
“Against Bournemouth Fabregas was responsible for instigating many, if not most, of the attacks Chelsea enjoyed on the day.
“Given room, the Spaniard will kill you with his passing ability. Unfortunately for Bournemouth that’s precisely what he did.”
Fabregas has made just nine Premier League appearances for Chelsea this season.
The Blues have won their last 12 matches on the bounce to sit six points clear of Liverpool at the top of the table.
Next up for Conte’s side is a home clash against Stoke on New Year’s Eve.
