Cesc Fabregas was all smiles with his daughter as the midfielder relaxed on Thursday afternoon ahead of Chelsea’s trip to Leicester City on Monday night.

The Blues booked their place in the Champions League last 16 thanks to a 2-0 victory over Portuguese side Porto at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday night.

The Spain international was an unused substitute in the Champions League victory after Fabregas struggled in a surprise 1-0 loss to Bournemouth last weekend.

However, Fabregas was in high spirits as he spent some quality time with his young daughter Lia on Thursday afternoon ahead of the hectic festive period.

Fabregas has been heavily criticised after the playmaker’s below-par start to the season.
The Chelsea man joined the west London side in a £27m deal from La Liga giants Barcelona in 2014.
