Fabregas says its time to relax!

Captain Cesc Fabregas welcomed the opportunity to "relax" after Arsenal secured top spot in Champions League Group H with a game to spare.

Samir Nasri and Denilson scored to earn the Gunners a 2-0 win over Standard Liege which leaves them on an unassailable 13 points at the group summit, six clear of second-placed Olympiacos.

Fabregas told Sky Sports Xtra: "It's really good for the team because we still have a game to go and we can relax a little and give some rest to some players, and make sure that some of the players who don't play too much can get a game."

Arsene Wenger's side were made to work hard for their half-time lead, and Fabregas admitted: "It didn't go our way but we kept going, we believed and we were positive.

"We did not feel it was done, but for sure we felt more confident.

"We just tried to be professional because we knew sometimes it can happen that the other team gets frustrated and you receive some bad kicks.

"We just tried to play our football and that's what we did."

Midfield partner Denilson, asked about his goal, added: "It was brilliant for me, it was a brilliant match for me and a good win for us - I'm very proud of the group."
