Chelsea star Cesc Fabregas has claimed "he doesn't remember enjoying a football match" as much as the 2-0 victory over West Bromwich on Saturday.

The Spaniard has been part of two of the most exciting teams ever, playing in Pep Guardiola's Barcelona dream team and winning the World Cup and two Euros with Spain.

But he believes Jose Mourinho has forged an even more attractive team in his second coming at Stamford Bridge.

"I don't think I am exaggerating if I don't remember playing and enjoying a football match as much as I did personally in the first half," the Spaniard said after Chelsea secured the victory in less than half an hour, with early goals from Diego Costa and Eden Hazard.

"We played outstanding football. It is always difficult after internationals because the team doesn't have time to work on many things and prepare the game but I enjoyed it a lot, particularly the first 45 minutes."

Fabregas, who clinched his 10<sup>th Premier League assist to provide Hazard with the second goal of the game, is delighted by the team's performance but believes they still can room for improvement.

"Some people who didn't watch the game will think 2-0, it was just an okay game but it was much more than that. It was a beautiful performance, very consistent, a clean sheet, we created plenty of chances and we had control of the game," the midfielder said.

"That is why I think we need to be more effective in front of goal and score more goals and send an even bigger message to our opponents."

Despite the impressive start to the campaign, which has yielded 10 victories from 12 games, Fabregas refused to take the Premier League title for granted and says there is still a long way to go.

"We know it is a long way to go and we don't look at all the comments from TV, press or fans because if you start looking at it now, everyone will think that Chelsea has already won the title and it is not like that," Fabregas said.

"We are professionals and some of us have been playing these type of competitions for a very long time and we have only played a few games really [this season]. It is a long way to go and we still have to do better than that."
