Cesc Fabregas: Chelsea must wrap up EPL title on Friday

Last season, Chelsea mounted a dismal defence of the Premier League title and Jose Mourinho was sacked in December 2015, before the club eventually limped to a 10th-place finish under interim boss Guus Hiddink.

Second round I feel much better about. While no team has come back from a three-zero playoff deficit, fans say Monday is the night that will change.
