Niall Quinn has claimed that Cesc Fabregas is getting back to his best form for Chelsea this season.

The 29-year-old has had to be patient for his first-team opportunities at Stamford Bridge this season but has impressed whenever called upon by manager Antonio Conte.

Indeed, Fabregas has only made 10 Premier League starts so far this season but has still managed to score four goals and notch up eight assists.

The former Arsenal captain played 76 minutes of Chelsea’s 4-2 win over Southampton at Stamford Bridge on Tuesday night and left the pitch to applause from the Blues faithful after a strong display in west London.

And former Arsenal star Quinn has heaped praise on Fabregas for his display against the Saints in midweek.

Quinn told Sky Sports: “It was great to see the generous applause for Fabregas [when he was substituted].

“He stamped his authority on the game and at times looked like the Fabregas of old.”
