Spurs beat Manchester City on away goals earlier this week to reach the semi-finals of the Champions League, where they face Ajax and then potentially Liverpool or Barcelona in the final.
Arsenal also reached the last four of a European competition after beating Napoli 3-0 on aggregate to boost their hopes of winning the Europa League.
The Monaco midfielder, who spent eight years with the Gunners, said on social media that it is better to win Europe's secondary competition than finish as runner-up in the elite tournament, provoking a cutting response from Roberts.
Genuine question... As a fan, would you rather get to the Champions League final and be a runner up or win the Europa League? Just curious.— Cesc Fàbregas Soler (@cesc4official) April 19, 2019
Not getting much game time now then Cesc?— Graham Roberts (@GrahamRoberts4) April 19, 2019
I don’t know who you are and I don’t know if I’m getting enough game time or not but I do know you won’t win anything again this season.— Cesc Fàbregas Soler (@cesc4official) April 19, 2019
Arsenal face Valencia in the semi-final of the Europa League.
Tottenham certainly have an easier draw than, say, Barcelona or Liverpool, but it's worth remembering that the Dutch giants have eliminated Real Madrid and Juventus already. Ajax will certainly be no pushovers.
