Cesc Fabregas had the last laugh on Sunday as he helped Chelsea secure a 1-0 victory over Arsenal at Emirates Stadium.

The former Arsenal captain produced a man of the match display as he masterminded the Blues’ narrow win over their local rivals in north London.

Fabregas, who played for Arsenal for eight years before joining their rivals Chelsea in the summer of 2014, was booed and jeered by the home fans throughout the game.

And this video above shows Fabregas having the final say as he left the pitch after helping Chelsea secure all three points.

Arsenal were reduced to 10 men when Per Mertesacker was sent off for bringing down Diego Costa, who was through on goal.
