Chelsea midfielder Cesc Fabregas is now flourishing after a slow start to the season under Antonio Conte and he puts it down to training hard.
"It is true that during the first half of the season it did not look like I fitted into Conte's style," Fabregas admitted.
"I adapted very well, I worked physically and tactically, and gave everything.
"He has made me realise the value of training and the more that we play, the more that we train."
"Barcelona have a great team, they have the best player ever and that clearly makes them more dangerous," said Fabregas.
"We are a great unit, a good team, competitive, we will go with a plan, we know what we are playing to do and what we have to do in order to take on Barcelona playing our football.
"It will be difficult but not impossible."
