Chelsea star Cesc Fàbregas confident in Barcelona's title chances this season: "They will win the double"

Cesc Fàbregas had a glorious career with Barcelona. And he is confident there is more glory to come this season.

The former Blaugrana and current Chelsea star spoke to Sky Sports about a variety of subjects, from his old manager José Mourinho to future manager Antonio Conte to former Barça manager Pep Guardiola. He was also asked about the Catalan giants' recent slump, with four losses in the last five games.

Despite the poor form, Fàbregas is still betting on his former teammates to win the two domestic competitions remaining, although they can't make any more mistakes.

"I think they will win the league, they have the easiest run-in. There are a few tough games for Real Madrid and Atletico.

"I thought they would win the treble this year again, not easily, football is never easy, but comfortably, and football surprises you once again. I think they’ll win the double, but they cannot allow any more mistakes."

Fàbregas knows Barça better than me, so I'll believe him. Hopefully the trophies don't run leave us like he did.
