The Barcelona midfielder Cesc Fabregas has said that he is extremely worried about the defensive performances by the team at the camp Nou this season. Even though Barcelona have maintained an unbeaten start to the new season with yet another win over Deportivo la Coruna, the 5-4 victory could have easily been in favour of the away team. Barcelona could have easily lost the eight-point advantage over Real Madrid in the table according to the former Arsenal midfielder. He is hoping that the team recovers from this poor defensive form before it is too late. After being on the bench for most of the first few matches, Cesc Fabregas has started playing a more important role in the team in the last few weeks.
He has said that he is enjoying his new found confidence in the team and is hoping to continue the same. The new Barcelona manager Tito Vilanova has certainly made some changes to the system used by Pep Guardiola in the last four years. Even though it is very similar when looked upon vaguely, many pundits and media have criticised the way it has allowed Barcelona to concede a lot of goals this season. However, it has made them a little more potent in attack.
“It will be a difficult game against Celtic on Tuesday night, they are a good side and always make it a tough match. We won the three points against Deportivo — but it’s clear we now have to analyse the four goals they scored against us. We simply have to improve in the future as we conceded too many goals, but we are in a good mood. It’s not easy to play a game like that after international break,” said Fabregas. Barcelona have 25 points from the nine matches played so far.
