Cesc Fabregas makes four-word tweet during Chelsea vs Tottenham game, backfires on him almost immediately

Former Arsenal midfielder Cesc Fabregas tweeted during the Chelsea vs Tottenham Hotspur game yesterday, but it backfired on him almost immediately. 

Spurs snatched a late point against the Blues yesterday after a last-minute Harry Kane header but it was Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg’s goal that initially annoyed Fabregas. 

The Spaniard thought Tottenham’s first goal should have been ruled out due to a foul and offside in the build-up. 

Fabregas tweeted: “Foul on Kai [Havertz] plus offside from Richarlison. Shocking.”

But not long after Spurs drew level, Reece James then restored Chelsea’s lead and Fabregas said it ‘doesn’t matter anyway’. 

Of course, Antonio Conte’s men then went on to find a last minute goal that gave them a share of the points at Stamford Bridge and the tweet backfired on Fabregas almost immediately.

The former Chelsea midfielder has played for two of Spurs’ biggest rivals, so it’s fair to say that Fabregas isn’t the most popular figure amongst Tottenham fans. 

Fabregas recently made the switch to Serie B outfit Como after a free transfer and hasn’t played in the Premier League since he last lined up for Chelsea in 2018. 

And the former Spain international clearly roots for his former side as he cheered on the Blues yesterday.

Fabregas played under the Italian at Chelsea and was an important player for Conte during his title-winning season in West London. 

But the Spaniard has a clear preference for Chelsea and Arsenal after playing for them during his career. 

Conte will be delighted to see his side take a point away from Stamford Bridge after being second-best for most of the game. 

The Italian lost all three of the games he played against Tuchel’s men last season so his Spurs side are certainly showing progress at the start of the new campaign.
