Cesc Fabregas tucked into a hearty breakfast before the Chelsea midfielder hit the swimming pool with his daughter on Monday afternoon.

The Spain international returned to the Chelsea starting line-up on Saturday afternoon as the defending Premier League champions eased to a 3-1 win against Sunderland at Stamford Bridge.

Goals from Branislav Ivanovic, Pedro Rodriguez and Oscar put Chelsea into a commanding lead before Sunderland striker Fabio Borini netted a late consolation for the visitors.

And the Blues midfielder made the most of an apparent free afternoon with his daughter Lia ahead of their clash against Watford on Boxing Day.
