Cesc Fabregas has more time on his hands during the week following Chelsea’s Champions League exit, and the midfielder enjoyed a spot of lunch with his step daughter Maria on Wednesday afternoon.

The Blues playmaker made a vital contribution in Sunday’s west London derby after the Spain international scored a last-gasp equaliser to seal a 1-0 victory over Queens Park Rangers.

Chelsea aren’t in action in Europe this week after Ligue 1 champions Paris Saint-Germain were aggregate winners after a dramatic second leg at Stamford Bridge last month.

But Fabregas, who sealed a return to the Premier League following a three-year stay at Camp Nou, uploaded a snap with his wife’s daughter from her previous marriage on his Instagram page.

Fabregas wrote: “Lunch with the beautiful @mariataktouk!”

Fabregas has scored three goals and has made 16 assists in 28 Premier League appearances this season following his £32m move to Chelsea from Barcelona last July.
