Chelsea midfielder Cesc Fabregas thinks his former coach Pep Guardiola will coach in the English Premier League.

Guardiola is currently in his last year as coach of Bayern Munich and is yet to agree to a new contract.

Guardiola has been linked with a move to Manchester City and Fabregas is certain that the former Barcelona coach will coach in the EPL.

“I have no doubt that Pep will test himself in the Premier League one day. I have spoken to him in the past and I know that he likes it a lot,” the Chelsea midfielder told Spanish radio Onda Cero.

In the interview, Fabregas admitted that he had lost counts of Chelsea defeats this season.

Jose Mourinho’s men have had a very poor start in the league, losing seven games out 12 played so far.

“Things are not going well in the league. Last season we lost four games in the entire season and this season I have practically lost count, I don't know if it is six or seven defeats,” the 28-year-old said.

“Clearly we are doing something very wrong.

“It gave us a big lift winning in the Champions League the other day and we can still top the group.

“But in the league we have to start winning now. And I'm not saying to win the Premier because that now is going to be very difficult.

“But to be in the Champions League places, and not just for this season, for the club and for our own sense of pride, but for next season because in the end we all want to play the Champions League.

“We all want to compete against the best and a club like Chelsea has to be there.”

The midfielder also revealed that he has been surprised by the physical level of their opponents this season which have improved this season.

“This year the physical level of the Premier League is brutal and if you are not right for a game the opposition steamroller you,” he said.

“It is happening to us at the moment. You face a team that last season you practically knew that you would beat and this year it is more difficult.”
