Fabregas told Arsenal.com after their Cup eliminations: “It is difficult for us to take. But we are professional and we are Arsenal so we have to try to come back as strong as possible.
“Let’s see if we can get second place. I still feel we have a chance to do that if we win every single game. We will see what happens.
“We just have to come back now, play as a team and try to get that second place. Chelsea still have to play Manchester United as well so I think it is possible.”
