Chelsea midfielder Cesc Fabregas has basically begged Antonio Conte to try a change of approach in the second leg of their Champions League last-16 tie with Barcelona.
The Blues were held 1-1 by Barca at Stamford Bridge last night, with Lionel Messi scoring what looks a crucial away goal that gives them the advantage going into the next game at the Nou Camp.
Chelsea were happy to surrender much of the possession on the night despite being the home side and looked to hit their opponents on the break throughout.
This worked up to a point, but Barcelona’s quality told in the end as Messi canceled out Willian’s opener to put pressure on Chelsea to try something different when the two teams meet again.
Fabregas is used to playing for sides that dominate the ball, having starred for both Arsenal and Barcelona earlier in his career, and he clearly believes Chelsea need to be bold and use that same philosophy when looking to overturn this deficit at the Nou Camp.
