Chelsea fans react on Twitter to Cesc Fabregas' performance against PSG

How Chelsea's Twitter-based supporters reacted to the Spanish midfielder's showing as their side were dumped out of the Champions League at the last-16.

A resilient 10-man Paris Saint-Germain dumped Chelsea out of the Champions League on away goals after a 2-2 draw at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday night, as Cesc Fabregas produced another concerning performance.

After a 1-1 draw in the first-leg of their last-16 tie in Paris, Chelsea appeared to get the upper hand in the opening 45 minutes when PSG’s star man Zlatan Ibrahimovic was sent off for a foul on Oscar.

Gary Cahill’s goal nine minutes from time looked to be sending the Blues through until their former defender David Luiz thumped home a header to send the match into extra-time, before Jose Mourinho’s side went ahead once again in the 96th-minute through an Eden Hazard spot-kick following Thiago Silva’s handball.

The Brazilian made amends six minutes before the end, however, with another excellent header to send the French side into the quarter-finals and leave Chelsea lamenting their failure to take advantage of the extra man.

The Premier League club needed their star difference-makers to turn up on the night, but Fabregas was one of those kept quiet throughout the 90 minutes, failing to pull the strings in midfield like he’s capable of.

After a hot start to the season, which saw him smash various assist records, the former Arsenal captain’s production has dropped off in dramatic fashion in recent weeks, and it’s clear that fans are starting to get somewhat concerned.

The Spaniard is far from a hindrance to his side at present but, judging from the Twitter reaction to his latest outing, he is certainly not his incisive best either.
