Cesc Fabregas appeared to be denied a stonewall penalty in the recent 1-0 win over Arsenal.
Even though the decision did not have any influence on the result, it could have been a more comfortable finish for Chelsea had they secured a two-goal advantage. This was yet another win for the blues against Arsenal, but it was against 10 men after Per Mertesacker received a straight red card in the first half. Defender Laurent Koscielny could have received another red card for his foul on Fábregas in the second half. Koscielny clearly appeared to knock down the Spaniard in an effort to win the ball.

Cesc Fabregas has had a fairly impressive career as the Spanish midfielder has won numerous titles from different leagues and has played an important role in just about every club where he has joined and performed in.
However, there is a title that seems to be out of the reach of Cesc Fabregas, the Champions League. It was with Arsenal when he almost managed to seal the prestigious European title but it just slipped away from him back in May of 2006 when Arsenal reached the finals of the Champions League as they faced off with Barcelona and ultimately lost 1-2 against the Spanish club.
Fabregas is 28 years old and still has enough time to add the Champions League title to his collection but in Stamford Bridge this might be next to impossible, especially taking into consideration the current state of Chelsea.

When Cesc Fabregas joined Chelsea on June of 2014, he lost many of his fans as the Arsenal supporters did not want to see the Spanish midfielder joining one of Arsenal’s rivals.
However, even though not many Arsenal fans agreed or were happy to see Fabregas joining Chelsea, the skillful player completed his move to Stamford Bridge and now he has turned into one of the most influential figures of Chelsea.
Even when the transfer was officially completed, it was still fairly hard to believe that Fabregas had joined Chelsea especially after all the time that he had spent performing for Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium.

He is now in a position where he can win the FIFA Ballon d’Or award after being named in the three-man shortlist. The winner of the award will be announced in the second week of January.

BBC football pundit Alan Shearer says that Chelsea’s recent 3-0 loss was largely down to the absence of impact by Cesc Fabregas. The Spaniard had a brilliant first half of the campaign last season and this was seen as an important reason behind the team reclaiming the league title after five years.
However, the champions are in danger of losing their crown sooner rather than later after making a very poor start to the season. Following the 2-2 draw with Swansea on the opening day, the blues lost 3-0 to City at Etihad stadium.

Chelsea’s 2-0 victory over Porto was a huge step in the right direction towards lifting the considerable cloud that has hung over Stamford Bridge this season, but the game could also serve as a wake-up call for Cesc Fabregas.
The Spanish midfielder was dropped to the bench for the important Champions League game that Chelsea could not afford to lose, but the team managed to get the job done in front of a very happy, yet relieved, home crowd.
Coral may still consider the Blues’ chances of going all the way in Europe this season as slim at 14/1, but if Fabregas can rediscover the sort of form that saw him register eighteen Premier League assists then Chelsea could enjoy success away from the league.
