Barcelona star Cesc Fabregas doesn't believe English club football is in crisis over their dismal showing in Europe this season.

The Spanish champions are hot favourites to lift the European Cup again in May as English clubs struggle to make any impact.

Former Arsenal captain Fabregas told The Sun: "It was definitely a surprise when Manchester United went out in the group stage.

"But this is just one season out of many successful ones. If it happened for many years then you could say the balance of power has shifted. But not yet.

"In any case, Chelsea could still make it through to the quarter-finals."
