David Villa hailed Cesc Fabregas' impact at Barcelona since his arrival from Arsenal.

Cesc was again influential in their 8-0 thrashing of Osasuna.

"Cesc has been raised here," Villa enthused. "Barca is in his veins and everyone knew he would give us a positive contribution like he is giving now.

"If injuries are going to be less frequent, we should have a better season. Last year we came under a heavy load."
