Chelsea midfielder Cesc Fabregas is one of the players who have been under fire as the Blues struggle to piece together what so far has turned out to be a torrid season.
The English champions are just a point above the relegation region after the Monday loss to Leicester City, their ninth loss of the season, and Cesc says the playing unit needs a change in attitude.
After the defeat, manager Jose Mourinho said he feels betrayed by his players and with Fabregas’ comments, there might a bigger problem at the team than depicted on the standings.
Fabregas has called on his fellow players to play like the big players they are.
“If you are a big player, and paid like a big player, you must play like a big player and behave like a big player.
“I am not saying you can’t have a bad season and bad games but the attitude must be spot on.
“We must always be at the top of our games, and the behaviour has to be better than what we are seeing right now from every single Chelsea player,” he told BBC Sports.
Chelsea will be hoping for better times when they take on relegation threatened Sunderland on Saturday 19 December.
