Arsenal captain Cesc Fabregas was visibly delighted with the performance away at Birmingham on Saturday as the Gunners consolidated third place in the table.
Speaking to BBC Sport after the game, the midfielder declared the Christmas period would have been better had the Gunners kept the lead against Wigan on Wednesday and managed to get all three points adding it is a very difficult period of the season and how the players are quiet fit going into the busy month of January.
Asked about the 0-3 win against Brum, the 23-year old confessed the players were a little bit nervous after failing to score the second goal but also how the defensive department played a very solid game allowing the home side to be dangerous only once with Fabregas referring to Roger Johnson’s chance.
Asked about new year’s resolutions, the Spaniard replied with a smile saying how he has none but has two important wishes for himself and the Club: to stay injury free and lift trophies for Arsenal.
After Birmingham, Fabregas said:
[The Christmas period] could have been better but it’s not bad, not bad at all. We know it’s a very difficult period, some games were cancelled which meant we had a bit more rest, but more games [are coming] in the future. We have to be ready for it, but at the moment we look quite fit.
We knew that [today] we were creating many many chances, playing well but when you don’t score the second and third you become a little more nervous. But we did quiet well, defensively we were very good, they only had one chance that I can remember.
We have a unique style of play, always want to go forward and create chances and play one-twos, sometimes maybe a little bit too much but that’s the way we were taught to play football and we like it this way.
I have a wish [for 2011]. No more injuries and being able to lift trophies for Arsenal, that’s all I wish.
