Cesc Fabregas game back into the side against Sunderland, and he duly repaid the faith of Antonio Conte with a midfield masterclass.

The Spaniard controlled the game from the middle of the park, and even popped up with the winning goal in the 1st half.

He looked decent defensively, but he shone going forward – with the midfielder constantly firing balls forwards as he looked to get attacks started.

He simply has to keep playing, and Conte must know that.
