Cesc Fabregas - Chelsea must buck up their ideas for Norwich City’s visit

Chelsea's Spanish midfielder Cesc Fabregas is urging his team mates to 'get their act together' ahead of Norwich City's league visit after an abysmal start to their title defence.
Jose Mourinho's squad lie one place and one point behind the Canaries ahead of this weekend's Stamford Bridge tussle.
Chelsea's high-profile manager has come under intense pressure after picking up 11 points from their opening 12 games, with reports prior to the international break there was dissent inside the Stamford Bridge dressing room over his methods. Fabregas, however, insists it is time for Mourinho's players to make their mark.
'We're the only ones who can turn things round. Nobody is going to give us a helping hand,' he said. 'We're still in a position to challenge the big boys in the Champions League, but in the Premier League we need to get our act together right away. The results aren't doing our performances justice. We're playing better but aren't having any luck. When things are going your way, you flick the ball with your heel and it flies into the top corner, whereas now every piledriver is going off target. Either way, we need to get back to winning ways sooner rather than later.
'Things with Mou are good. Obviously when you're not winning things always get said, whereas when you're winning everything's rosy.'
