Chelsea’s players need to justify their “big wages” and start playing like “big players”, says Blues’ Cesc Fabregas.
The floundering Premier League champions are only one point above the relegation zone after Monday’s ninth defeat of the season, at Leicester.
After the game boss Jose Mourinho said his “work was betrayed” by his players.
“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,” said Spain midfielder Fabregas.
“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.”
