Cesc Fabregas was ‘proud’ of the way his Barcelona team came from behind to beat Sevilla yesterday.
Alberto Moreno had given the home side the lead, but Lionel Messi, Alexis Sanchez and Fabregas himself, secured a 4-1 win at Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan.
“This was a very important match. When you have a chance to take the top spot you have to take advantage of it. It’s good to get it back so quickly,” he told reporters after the game.
“In the first minutes we didn’t play well. They were very intense, but from the point Alexis scored the game was ours.
“La Liga is very equal at the moment. We have to play each other and we have to be strong.
“We can’t give away any advantages in games that are already going in our favour. I’m very proud of this team.
“It was an important and fundamental match. We had to take the top spot in order to regain confidence.”
