Cesc Fabregas couldn’t keep a smile off his face as the Chelsea midfielder spent some quality time with his daughter Capri on Thursday afternoon.

The Spain international has plenty to be chirpy about after the 28-year-old playmaker scored Chelsea’s fourth goal in an emphatic 4-0 victory over Maccabi Tel-Aviv in their Champions League group-stage opener at Stamford Bridge on Wednesdya night.

Fabregas has endured a tough start to the Premier League campaign after he was criticised for a series of subdued performances after he failed to make a goal or an assist in five games.

And the World Cup winner took to photo-sharing app Snapchat to post an adorable selfie with his two-month old daughter, Capri.
