And now the player will be eagerly looking forward to this Saturday when they visit Wembley for the FA Cup final for his first winner's medal with United.
While Chelsea may be considered the underdogs ahead of the final, given the fact they finished the Premier League season in fifth and some 11 points behind second-placed United, Fabregas believes determination and belief will prove pivotal on the day.
