Jermaine Jenas hailed Cesc Fabregas’ “masterclass” in Chelsea’s 3-0 win against Middlesbrough.

The Blues took a big step towards the Premier League title on Monday night with a resounding win at Stamford Bridge.

Diego Costa broke the deadlock in the first half before Marcos Alonso finished from a tight angle to double the Premier League leaders’ lead.

Nemanja Matic added a third after half-time to seal the win and leave Chelsea seven points clear of their closest title rivals Tottenham Hotspur.

However, Fabregas received most of the plaudits after the Spain international finished with 85 per cent pass completion.

The 30-year-old, who celebrated his birthday last week, teed up Matic for Chelsea’s third goal at Stamford Bridge.

One Chelsea fan sent a message to Jenas seemingly in reference to Fabregas’ display in the Premier League clash.

The former Tottenham midfielder responded to the Chelsea supporter as he hailed Fabregas’ influential performance.

Jenas tweeted: “Yep, watching a @cesc4official masterclass 👍🏽”
