Photo: Chelsea’s Cesc Fabregas hails ‘amazing’ Arsenal midfielder
Cesc Fabregas gushes with praise for Mathieu Flamini after the Arsenal midfielder's display against Tottenham
Cesc Fabregas has taken to social media to praise Mathieu Flamini’s man-of-the-match display during Arsenal’s 2-1 win over Tottenham Hotspur in the League Cup third round on Wednesday night.
The French midfielder scored either side of half-time to send Arsene Wenger’s men through to the fourth round of the competition at White Hart Lane.
Flamini’s second goal was a superbly timed volley to give the Gunners the lead against their bitter local rivals.
And Fabregas took to Instagram on Thursday night to heap praise on his former team-mate and encourage his fans to follow Flamini on his new account on the photo-sharing app.
Fabregas shared the photo above of the duo on holiday together and wrote: “Follow my man @mathieuflamini ! What an amazing performance last night brather. I always knew you had an eye for goal. ” src=”https://s.w.org/images/core/emoji/72×72/1f61b.png”>” src=”https://s.w.org/images/core/emoji/72×72/1f618.png”>”
Fabregas and Flamini played together during the Spaniard’s eight-year spell at the north London club before his eventual return to Barcelona in the summer of 2011.
The Spain international joined Chelsea from the La Liga outfit last summer and helped Jose Mourinho’s men win the Premier League and League Cup in his first season at the club.
