Chelsea playmaker Cesc Fabregas is adamant that Chelsea must go on the offensive when they take on Paris Saint-Germain in the second-leg of their last-16 Champions League match at Stamford Bridge tonight vowing they will not park the bus despite having a slight advantage in an away goal from the first-leg 1-1 draw at the Park des Princes.
“We want to go through,” he told reporters on Tuesday. “We have to make it happen. We will not sit back and wait for them to come.
“We will try and create opportunities to score. They’re a fantastic side.”
Chelsea is currently on track to win the English Premiership this season and has already won the League Cup, but the Spanish international says they must develop a killer instinct to have any chance of a treble.
“This is the thing: if I have to say what we’re missing a bit this season, it’s that moment when, if we can kill, we have to kill,” he added. “There have been moments where we’ve not done that and allowed other players to push and be dangerous.
“We have to be more determined, especially when we go forward. When we get one goal, we have to go for the second and third. That’s the only thing we can really improve.
“Hopefully we will have that killer instinct [against PSG] and go for the game from the first second.”
Fabregas has told the fans he will do everything he can to help the Blues win the Champions League for the second time after having never won the trophy with Barcelona.
“Well, physically and mentally, I will give everything for Chelsea to win it,” he said. “I’d be lying if I said it wasn’t a competition that is special to me. Ask a player what he wants to win in his career, he’ll say the World Cup and the Champions League.
“It’s not an extra pressure but I want to win it. I will give my best and hopefully we will go through into the next round. We’ll go game by game.
“Sometimes the best team doesn’t win. You have to be fortunate with the draw or your performance on the day. We have to take it to the next level.”
