CESC FABREGAS has warned Liverpool: Arsenal are just like Brazil.
The Gunners have used their free-flowing samba style to go two points clear at the top of the Premier League.
And Fabregas is determined to prove Arsene Wenger’s passing game is the best as they head into their toughest spell of the campaign — today’s clash at Anfield being followed by a visit from Manchester United.
The Spanish ace said: “We’re like Brazil when they’re at the top of their game. The best thing about us is how quick and precise we are.
“But we must keep our feet on the ground and work harder than everyone else. Staying right at the top is the hardest thing.”
Arsenal head to Merseyside on the back of their 7-0 Champions League thrashing of Slavia Prague.
And Fabregas — who has struck up a great partnership in midfield with Mathieu Flamini — added: “In the Champions League we’re close to achieving our first aim, to qualify for the next round.
“But in the Premier League there is a long way to go and we have to keep on applying the same amount of energy. We have two tough league matches coming up and they provide an opportunity to show our strength.
“We will have to give everything to get a good result at Anfield but I trust in
our team. Our style is very different to Liverpool’s and they’re usually excellent games — there have been lots of goals in recent matches. It’s an acid test for us.
“Coming out of Anfield with a good result will give us a big lift. Then we play against United — another massive game.
“Those two matches are like two championship finals in the space of a fortnight.”
But although excitement is building around the Emirates Stadium after Arsenal’s whirlwind start to the season Fabregas, 20, is just too smart to get carried away.
Off the field he is studying the Spanish equivalent of A-Levels with a view to a future university course.
Tutors visit his Enfield home for four hours a week to help with his studies and he has a big exam in May.
He hopes it coincides with title glory. He added: “We don’t want good progress, we want the title.”
