Cesc Fabregas played against Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi but Liverpool star was toughest opponent

Because of his versatility, Steven Gerrard was the most difficult opponent to face.

Such is the view of Cesc Fabregas, who, throughout his time in the Premier League, relished numerous challenges in the center of the field.

Fabregas played with superstars like Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo while at Chelsea, Barcelona, and Arsenal.

Although they are both forwards, Fabregas chose Gerrard because the two of them often engage in physical altercations in the middle of the field.

The legendary Reds player, with whom he shared the field with the Gunners and the Blues, was described by him as having “everything in his locker” when speaking to SPORTBIBLE.

He could score goals, assist on others’, and make runs from behind the net. He could also dominate play. His strength was offensive.

Every time you faced him, you knew you had to give it your all or face the consequences; he was quite constant.

On a scale from one to ten, he was usually a seven.

When I think back on my time playing against him, I can see how much of an inspiration he was for me. He was a great teacher to me.

When Fabregas was playing for England, he and Gerrard were two of the top midfielders in the league.
