Fabregas frustrated by mistakes

Cesc Fabregas has admitted that Arsenal need to cut out the

careless mistakes that have proved costly in key matches this


The Gunners must overturn a 2-1 deficit in their Champions

League tie against Porto after conceding two soft goals in the

first leg in Portugal on Wednesday night.

Lukasz Fabianski spilled a right-wing cross for Porto’s

opener and then picked up a back-pass to present Ruben Micael with

the chance to set up Falcao.

Disappointing defeats to Manchester United and Chelsea in the

Premier League have also threatened to derail Arsenal’s title

challenge and Fabregas concedes he is frustrated by the situation.

The Spanish midfielder does not see other sides making such

sloppy errors and has called on his team-mates to eradicate the

problem if they are to start winning silverware again.

“The other top teams don’t make these mistakes as often as we

do,” Fabregas said in the Daily Mail.

“Sometimes we make mistakes that at the top level you pay for

and this is one of those nights.

“It happened against Chelsea and Man United and now again so

I think we have to try to find the solution to these problems

because it is costing us many, many things.”
