Fabregas Barcelona

Chelsea fans have been impressed by Cesc Fabregas' performances so far in a Chelsea shirt.

Cesc Fabregas has got Chelsea fans and his manager purring after his performances so far for the club over pre-season.

The £27 million purchase from Barcelona has been in superb form since signing, and he scored the pick of the goals in the Blues’ 2-1 victory over Ferencvaros in their most recent friendly.

The Spaniard picked the ball up out wide before drifting past three defenders and slotting the ball into the net with a fine finish to score the winner in the pre-season clash, after Ramires had drawn the side level.

It was a goal which added even more excitement around his transfer to Stamford Bridge and led to Jose Mourinho calling him the ‘future’ of the club.

Fabregas has emerged as Chelsea’s star performer during their preparations for the Premier League season and his displays have meant that he has forged a starting position for himself already.

The 27-year-old is expected to be utilised in a deep-midfield role, alongside Nemanja Matic, and appears to have established himself as one of the first-names on the team-sheet.

His goal at the weekend caused quite a stir on Twitter, with his performance really outlining how pivotal a part he will play in Chelsea’s hunt for the Premier League title this season.

The Blues fell just short last time around, but they will be hoping that Fabgregas’ addition, alongside Diego Costa and Filipe Luis, will help lift them to the top of the English game.

And the initial signs have been encouraging, with social media a buzz with Chelsea fans raving about Fabregas’ performances in a Chelsea shirt so far.

Here are some of the best tweets on the Spanish international’s displays over pre-season.
