Cesc Fabregas offers love to Liverpool with 3 answers in Q+A

Cesc Fabregas had some very positive things to say about Liverpool on Thursday. The AS Monaco midfielder responded to fans in a Twitter Q+A.

Cesc Fabregas held a Twitter Q+A on Thursday where he took questions from fans. They covered a wide range of topics but, understandably, stuck to football for the most part.

And as it happened, the Spaniard had some very positive things to say about Liverpool.

Fabregas on Liverpool

Best player?

One fan asked Fabregas who the toughest player he faced was while at Arsenal. He was with the Gunners from a very early age, of course, playing seven Premier League seasons before leaving in 2011.

As a result, Fabregas came up against many players and some of the best we’ve ever seen in the Premier League. His toughest opponent, though? Steven Gerrard.

He picks the former Liverpool captain who was undoubtedly at the peak of his powers while Fabregas was at Arsenal. We believe Gerrard was one of the all-time great midfielders, of course, so hardly a shocking pick.

Best atmosphere?

What was the best atmosphere Fabregas played in front of? He only offered up one suggestion for this answer – Anfield.

It’s always striking when opposition players talk up Anfield. Let alone someone like Fabregas, who has played at just about every famous ground on the planet and in some massive games.

Anfield is the best of them, in his eyes. We’re not going to argue.

Best False 9?

Fabregas famously played as a False 9 while at Barcelona, particularly in his first season under Pep Guardiola. It wasn’t really his best position but it’s one he found moderate success with.

But one fan asked Fabregas who he sees as playing the role best at the moment. There was only one answer.

Yeah, we’re not sure there’s another sensible answer here. Firmino is absolutely the world’s standout False 9s and will go down as one of the greatest to ever play the role.

Jurgen Klopp, for instance, believes “people will write books” on how well Firmino plays the False 9.

Few can combine his defensive work, movement, technical skill and goalscoring. A sensational player who will prove incredibly difficult to replace when the time comes.
