Gerard Pique believes that it is unfair for Barcelona teammate Cesc Fabregas to be singled out for criticism.

Barcelona defender Gerard Pique has appealed to the club's supporters to not single out Cesc Fabregas for criticism.

Fabregas was jeered by some fans during the 2-1 victory over Athletic Bilbao on Sunday, but Pique believes that the whole team should be blamed for their recent disappointments.

"It isn't good to have fans whistling you - particularly at home," the Spaniard told reporters.

"I think it is a mistake to focus on just one player. Blame it on the players, okay, but not just Cesc.

"The season has not been good and I think we are all part of a group that haven't quite got things right."

Barcelona are currently second in La Liga, four points behind leaders Atletico Madrid.
