Cesc Fabregas reacts to Marcos Alonso's goal in Chelsea FC's 2-1 win over Tottenham on Saturday
Cesc Fabregas took to Twitter to celebrate Marcos Alonso’s goal in Chelsea FC’s 2-1 win over Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday afternoon.
The Spanish defender has found his first-team opportunities limited under Frank Lampard in the Premier League this season.
The former Real Madrid full-back was making just his seventh start of the Premier League season in the London derby.
Oliver Giroud broke the deadlock in the 15th minute with a clinical finish after Hugo Lloris initially denied his compatriot.
Alonso doubled the west London side’s advantage in the 48th minute with a brilliant goal to complete an attractive Chelsea FC move.
The 29-year-old came close to scoring his second of the derby but Alonso’s free-kick hit the woodwork later in the second half.
Fabregas won the Premier League title along with Alonso as part of Antonio Conte’s Chelsea FC team in 2016-17.
And Fabregas, who played for Tottenham’s rivals Arsenal and Chelsea FC during his Premier League career took to Twitter to send a message to Alonso.
Fabregas wrote in Spanish on his Twitter page: “Ese es mi Marquitossss @marcosalonso03 💪🏻👏🏻”
His message in English translates to: “That is my Marquitossss”
