The Spanish midfielder scored the crucial second goal in a 2-1 victory over Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park, and he is delighted with the approach Jose Mourinho's side are taking to games, even if it does mean that he will be prevented from attacking as much in the future.
"I like to play this kind of football, and Eden [Hazard] and Oscar do as well, and the three of us connect very well and that goal showed well the qualities of the whole team," Fabregas told the club's official website.
"Now I am playing deeper in midfield there will be moments during the season when maybe I go five or six games without a goal or an assist, and I am more proud about the teamwork, the discipline, the way we coped with the sending off, than my goals or my assists. I give those to other people to talk about."
Chelsea hold a five-point lead at the top of the Premier League.
