Cape Town - Chelsea midfielder Cesc Fabregas believes the Premier League is the most difficult league to win, after claiming his second winners' medal in three years.

Antonio Conte's men ground out a 1-0 win over West Brom on Friday night to secure the Premier League silverware with two games left to play.

Fabregas, who has made 27 appearances for the Blues in the league this season, won La Liga with Barcelona before signing for the London club in 2014, but believes the Premier League trophy is more challenging to win.

He said, according to the Evening Standard: "There’s something about winning this trophy from the other ones that I was very lucky to win, probably the biggest things in football. Winning the Premier League trophy is something special, it gives you a special feeling.

"Having played in Spain and watching a lot of football as I do - Germany, France and Italy - this is the best league in the world.

"Maybe it does not have the best players in the world, but it’s the most competitive and most difficult league to win, for sure.

"To be able to win it two times in three years at Chelsea is something to be very proud of.

"Why is it so tough? Anyone can beat you. That's the thing. I’ve played in Spain, there was many games where you had to do really, really bad to drop points.

"Here, every game is tough and that’s why next year, with the Champions League as well, we will have to be at the top of our game to compete again for the Premier League."
