The goalkeeper posted the picture above on Instagram and wrote: “With my friend @thibautcourtois after the qualification for the last 16 of the Champions League! @chelseafc #team #ucl”

Cesc Fabregas, meanwhile, kept his own Instagram post short and sweet, sharing the photo below and writing: “Top of the group.”
