Chelsea's Fabregas and Azpilicueta react on Twitter to Arsenal win

Chelsea beat Arsenal 2-0 on Sunday, and two of their first-team stars have reacted to the win.

Chelsea players Cesc Fabregas and Cesar Azpilicueta have reacted to the Blues' 2-0 win over Arsenal on Sunday that sent them five points clear at the top of the Premier League.

Eden Hazard won and converted a penalty before Fabregas provided a delightful long pass for Diego Costa to control and finish expertly.

Chelsea are looking every inch champions-elect, and while the campaign has only just begun and there are a number of competitions to negotiate in the months ahead, their league form has been nothing short of remarkable.

After the match, defender Azpilicueta hailed "a thrilling derby" and a "great display from the team", while Fabregas - in typically understated fashion - revealed that he was "chilling at home with the family after a hard match".

The Spaniard was always likely to come back to haunt his former club Arsenal, and so it proved with yet another assist for Costa.

For now the players can revel in their latest win, but they will soon be back on the pitch in an attempt to do it all over again.
